For Sale / Enerdrive 2600w Inverter EN1126X
« Last post by Muddy1 on 24 February, 2021, 10:05:39 AM »
Just removed from my KK due to modifications going on (removed microwave, changing battery charger arrangements, smaller ebike inverter going in, etc). This was mounted under the microwave where the original charger/inverter had been installed. Location is Darwin, however I can bring to Brisbane after Easter.  Price includes postage with tracking. I can ask local Enerdrive dealer for a report on its performance for a serious potential buyer.  Asking $950. Installed in 2018.

For Sale / Aussiewheel AW3 (SOLD)
« Last post by Mel & Grahame on 14 February, 2021, 03:48:00 PM »
Aussiewheel AW3 trailer mover. 
Set up with 12v battery on board.
Has hitch receiver for Treg but all types are available and easily changed.
Also added heavy duty swivelling jockey wheels to help with Treg’s range of articulation. The original straight axle is with it and easily re-installed.
Used maybe a dozen times over a 12 month period but our situation has changed now so no longer use it.
$1600.
Pick up from Normanhurst, Sydney. Can freight but I don’t think they’ll allow the battery to go?

Allan, thank you for your suggestion. I had a look at Daly BMS and it looks promising. However, the cost is $400 for 12V 100A unit (including 3 year warranty) from solar4rvs. Found another site offering the same unit for $120 but with no warranty. I will contact solar4rvs for more information.

Cheers, Zed

Zed, I think Rod is only interested in his own system (understandably). If you can get to the inside of the original batteries it would be a simple issue to fit a Daly BMS across the cell terminals which would replace the original inbuilt BMS assuming your cells are in good condition.

I put similar question to Rodney Dilkes from EV Power:
"I have 2 Kimberley 120 Ah Series 3 batteries (IFM12-1100E3) manufactured by O'Cell in China and connected in parallel in Kimberley Kruiser S2 (YOM2015). One battery has faulty internal BMS board but all cell in both batteries are OK with 3.4 V across each cell. Is it possible to use the cells from both batteries with your external BMS?"

His answer was:
"Sorry, I don’t think that would work well."
Regards, Rod Dilkes
EV Power Australia Pty Ltd


Initially, my batteries failed almost simultaneously due to mechanical failure of Chinese made ZOMKUN (ZK02-120, col: 9VDC) latching relays inside the battery box. These could not be sourced locally nor from China. I replaced them with locally sourced OMRON (G9TB-U1ATH-E, col:12VDC) latching relays. Everything worked fine until I accidentally shorted the BMS board in one of the batteries.
Failure of $5 relays disabled originally AU$2550 (each) batteries. It is hard to understand why the battery boxes were glued shut when they contained serviceable parts. I note that several brands of LiFePO4 batteries are now fully serviceable (–eg. Enerdrive ePower B-Tec G2, Safiery).

Anyhow, I am still trying to source a dead or alive Kimberley 120AH Series 3 battery which has a functional BMS.

Cheers, Zed

The Kimberley batteries have an internal BMS as stated but given that a new 120 Amp-hr battery could cost $1000 + perhaps an alternative approach could be to simply remove the internal BMS and install an external unit. This would involve a bit of battery surgery but nothing too complicated. A suitable BMS (Daly 100A) should cost a bit over $100 but probably worth the effort.
