    I just have a couple things to weigh in on...

    I suspect a battery manufacturer would not recommend a float voltage for 17 months. Instead they might suggest an efficient cycling process instead. This would eliminate the loss of fluid caused by the constant float voltage.

    The top end (90-100%) seems like a moot point because of the partial state of charge benefit of the PbC. If we charge/discharge rapidly between 20-80% SOC why do we care about the top 10%?

    Cell-to-cell variation seems less meaningful with the PbC's equalization advantage and monitoring seems straight forward in that entire array is 2v cells in series monitored in 6 cell segments right? what is the state of this segment compared to the segments around it? (10 PbC's in series in the same as 60 cells in series right?).

    The rest of the questions you raise and many more should be answered and made available to inquiring minds (clients). One of the many complaints raised by this board and left unanswered.

    Just my thoughts... posted with apprehension since I have become more of a lurker than a contributor due to life/time. Cheers to the group...

    I have been waiting to step my toe into the CPST pool. I fell asleep when it was in the $1.3x range. Anyone buying here?

    Professional drivers use engine brakes on a regular basis and use the mechanical brake as little as possible. Most engine brakes have many levels of braking all select-able by the driver. My recommendation is that you not try to automate this too much as the drivers expect to control this themselves. Including shutting it off when the road is slippery... IMO

    For the record, aerodynamic drag does not come into play with speeds under 50 mph... (FWIW)

    So what do your suppose they assigned NS 899 to? seems reasonable to think they used 799 since 899 was already taken... my guess is the OTR unit...

    JK, curious, why didn't you just take the controls of the APC since it was a cooperative effort? moving it here breaks continuity in many things, namely search algorithms and such...

    Customer #1 then it is... and the largest order to date! It would be fun to visit New Castle to see the assembly lines loaded with the PbC...

    A great surprise in my inbox this morning. My first thought was Customer #1 has arrived but then that's what I thought with ePower and their follow on order. How is this one different?

    The translation:

    In addition to the systems based activated carbons where energy is stored as electrostatics, a second line of research aimed at increasing energy densities focuses on
    development of hybrid supercapacitors. These systems combine the electrode storing electrostatic charges in the form ( capacitor electrochemical double layer type) with a type electrode making a faradic battery storage (redox reaction). This approach , initiated in 1999 by the team Amatucci (USA) has developed actif/Li4Ti5O12 coal systems [3 ] is promising for several reasons : increased cell voltage ( U0) and availability all energy stored between U0 U0 and / 2 . Some systems are already on the market , such as C / NiOOH ( Saft ) C-Pb/PbO2 ( Furukawa Electric) , and C/PbO2 ( Axion Power). Among carbon supercapacitors / oxides being studied hybrids, the system is carbone/MnO2 very promising because of its operation in an aqueous medium , at voltages up to
    2 V , stability in aging and cost [4,5] . However , the electronic conductivity poor boundary phase of MnO2 system performance . Therefore , all work to improve the properties of ionic and electronic conductivity are axes interesting to develop research.

    FWIW...

    Iindelco, if it were me, i would build out in 20' containers from the factory and not rely on field installations. One container w/electorinics (inverter/switching) and the rest full of batteries built and TESTED at the factory.

    Looading at the factory on flat level pavment with a stationary overhead crane is one thing, unloading at the project site with a shale base and equipment that is likely to be too small.

    20' containers are modular, easy to manuver, stakable and you don't have to have the big boom to put it where it needs to be... just my 2 cents worth...
