Just spoke with Michael. His recommendations we’re either using these. 6 of them in series would get you to the required voltage and fit nicely in the luggage space of the bug. Could fit 6 more in parallel to increase amperage and range https://www.evwest.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=4&products_id=534&osCsid=bd1957e69e626fcd923b72356d1c4a2d He also recommended these JH3 LG Chem Super Cells. 12 would be required to get to operating voltage, but he mentioned that he had just received another version of these modules (JHP) that have 2 already in parallel that they’ll be adding to the store soon after they finish their testing. (to me these look like they’d work better for a bus conversion) https://www.evwest.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=4&products_id=534&osCsid=bd1957e69e626fcd923b72356d1c4a2d He did warn that the large Tesla motor is hard to run in a bug due to the high current and voltage it needs and that it’s too much power. Here’s a good resource I found on their website. https://www.evwest.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=476 All of these batteries he has in stock and could deliver in 10 minutes. – Michael We talked about the Jehu mustang cells and he said that these are going to be torn apart modules with the wire bonds between the cells cut. Effectively you would be buying the cells and building your own modules/pack. Another note is that the EVWest modules come rewired with new BMS harnesses so that it’s easier to get things wired up to the BMS.
Sounds like good info!!!! I’ve been trying to steer clear of this program… 😎

Do you like those model S cells Glenn? How many do we need? Let’s get something ordered.GlennmossModeratorSeptember 24, 2022 at 10:29 pmPost count: 292
Hey Franz the model S modules are great. You’d need 16 of them to run the tesla motor. Space for that may be a challenge which is why I recommended the one’s above.John JonesModeratorSeptember 25, 2022 at 6:10 amPost count: 10406
Seems like we need some batteries to move forward with this… gonna have to get creative hiding them
