Re: What size portable generator to L2 charge?

Fri Jun 15, 2012 11:40 am

seems like we need to figure out how to hook two of the Yamaha EF2400iSHC together in a 240V setup.

lifting ~80 lbs twice vs ~150 once is a big deal. Plus, if possible, 2xEF2400i would be noticeably faster than the EF-3000

Of course, A 30kw turbine trailer would be a good option too!

At 150lbs that would be a back breaker (not that 76lbs for the Honda would be a picnic either) but it would be 2800w vs 2600w continuous, and twice the fuel capacity... but frankly who would plan to sit around somewhere more than three hours charging this way anyway? You'd have to really be in a pickle.
We can set an EVSE to any amperage requested, but for the EU30i, I'd set it to 8 amps and for the EF-3000iSE; 12A.

Two EU30i's in parallel could charge the Leaf at it's full rate.
