New Options FEB 2014

Posted by Jimmy Stack on February 4, 2014 at 10:10 AM

I just read about these new options on the facebook post. New suspension coming soon and new batteries available now that are 16 AH instead of 10AH. PS you can get 48v 20 and 30 AH lithiunm batteries from other suppliers too. But these are from OT.

Below from post Dwayne Stutzman posted in Organic Transit ELF Owners Group

new options, one of which is a planned front suspension system. Rob said they could retrofit the suspension system on the current ELF’s, which is very interesting to me, as I currently ride a fully suspended tadpole trike, which is “very" smooth when compared to the ELF I test rode last August. That being said, the new “fat” tire option that I purchased also create a much smoother ride from that original ELF. But I will definitely be looking forward to adding the suspension when it is available.

Also, when I had talked with Brent late last week, he offered me a new option, a 16Ah hour battery, which they had just received that day from a new supplier in Germany. They are 40% more powerful and thus add 40% more mileage. OT has also sealed them in a water resistant carrying case, so that should alleviate the “wet battery” issue. Hope so! They are an extra @$200 per battery. As I had ordered an additional battery and the “fast” charger, I was able to get the 2 new batteries for an additional $350, as the $150 “fast” charger will not work with the new batteries. The batteries also came with 2 chargers, so can charge both at the same time.

I ordered my ELF with the upgraded BMZ 16 Ah battery as well as the upgraded 100W solar panel. The battery charger did not work at first, but I was able to reset it and now it is working fine. I also installed a WattsUp DC meter, and according to the meter, it will take longer than 8 hours to fully charge the battery; even with the 100 watt solar panel.
