More Pics

Here are some new pictures of Mac.

I got an adapter cord so that I can charge at the new charging stations being installed. I stopped by the one at the library in Redmond for a test run. Everything worked perfectly. Now I have to come up with a way to find all the charging stations. It seems like every place selling these stations have there own maps. There needs to be a master map that shows all of them for this to really work.
Here are a couple of pics of Mac at home charging.

Here he is eating dinner

Here is his personal plate

Here are a few with the new adapter


  1. Glad to hear that the Triac is working well. Any guess when Green Vehicles will start shipping lots of them?

  2. I wish I knew. I think the hold up is still the improved motor controller combination.
    They did tell me that because I have been working very close with them that I was going to get the upgrade when it does become available. I hope it is true.
    I believe a lot of it has to do with keeping the costs down as well. The problem with all new technology is it is expensive. i wish they would just go with DC instead of AC. The cost is a lot lower, and there are alot of ones to chose from.

  3. Randy,
    Thanks for the input. I really like the Triac and wish I could get one. But I don't think they are street legal in Massachusetts. They don't allow, 3 wheeled, covered, 2 passenger vehicles.

  4. Thanks for the pics Randy! You are lucky to be one of the few people on Earth to be driving around an affordable electric car.
