Grid charger owners and location, as well as some service links for hybrid services

Read this first:
The charging/rebalancing procedure is not fast, and involves deep discharging the pack by either driving up mountains, or using the discharger to deplete the charge. If the user you would like to connect with
has a charger, but his harness is already installed in his car, he would not be able to try charging your car, as there is no way to connect to it.
If he does not have a discharger, you may want to get one so you can both benefit from the charger and discharger.

What many people have done is to get and install one of my harnesses after making a connection with a charger owner.


Second issue is time.
A thorough initial conditioning cycle would be:

Soak charge 14-20 hours depending on initial SOC
Discharge/Charge Cycle #1 ~13 Hrs
Discharge/Charge Cycle #2 ~13 Hrs
Discharge/Charge Cycle #3 ~13 Hrs

59 hours, or 2 and a half days. You would not have a car during that period, and the donor would have to mind the car.

It would be cool if people in the same area could coordinate using the charger, so the group members could share the cost of the charger.

Some charger owners will help people with different aspects of the charger install or use, the following codes will describe their abilities* (I cannot vouch for people that claim abilities here)
Contact me directly to change the info for your entry in the list.

Charger type GCO1,GCM1,GCIM1

Discharger (DIS) allows cycling of the pack for better capacity recovery

Shop harness (SH)Can charge without real harness installed

What help are you willing to offer:

Charging if you have harness (CG if HI)

Harness install and charging (HI-CG)

Full reconditioning (FR)

Diagnostics of pack that needs more than charging (DIAG)

Any monetary, beer, dinner, or other gratuities for the services offered should be negotiated between the people involved.
If people do not have a list of services they are willing to do, don't ask me to contact them, as only a few are willing to accept the liability and have the time to do a reconditioning, and they have indicated that, the rest have not came foward, and I dont want to bug them.
