The intake is on the axis (through the generator) and the exhaust is covered up with the black duct tape. The exhaust temp is ~500F.Herm wrote:I wonder what he is thinking behind that little smile; Crazy Americans!

He showed off a "piggyback" replacement power cable that he said can be used to put DC voltage directly into the pack and/or run the drive inverter. I don't think he has to do anything special with the regen circuitry.ahagge wrote:...Have you worked out how to charge while moving yet? How are you planning to hook in, via the regen circuitry?

Both, is what his plans seem to indicate. Its a mobile propane powered turbine generator w/ a DC Fast charger (30KW), and looks like he's finding a way to connect it to the pack for recharging while driving as well.91040 wrote:I am confused as to what this actually does. Does it provide power on the run, recharge the battery or both?
