This blog documents the restoration, and conversion, of a 1965 Humber (Singer) Vogue to a fully electric vehicle. The Vogue will be powered by an 11kW(modified), 3 phase industrial AC motor, controlled by an industry standard Variable Speed Drive (VSD) or Inverter. To be able to produce the 400 volts phase to phase the VSD will need about 600 VDC of batteries. A big thanks to the contributors on the AEVA forum:

Charger Mods Done

I have finished modifying all the chargers and was pleased to come out this morning to the Vogue with every pack charged and fully balanced. This is the first time all the packs have been fully balanced at the same time and will be the norm from now on.
I had yet another fuse holder fail Wednesday night sometime and Pack #1 (boot) didn't charge for my drive to work on Thursday. I bypassed it at work and charged just that pack - so it didn't stop me.

I just have to get rid of those pesky fuseholders now.
