Got mine and having fun. It is a bit klugy, particularly in size, but the features are great. Being tall, I velcro it to the dash above radio and get little obstruction.
I'm interested in a two things right now.
1. I want to do the performance testing that Eli and Peter are doing to baseline my "new" battery pack.
2. I want to learn how to do the rejuvination cycle, deep discharge followed by overcharge, that Mike's grid charger allows. I ordered one of the new MIMAs, but still a bit unsure I'll install it. Otherwise I have to wait for Mike to get the circuitry sorted out to do the "safe discharge."
Right now I'm just doing normal grid charges because I don't have a means to deep discharge safely. It has occured to me that I should perhaps just do a 80% discharge (agressive IMA assist) followed by a normal grid charge, and then performance test that. Thusly, I could save the radical stuff until I start seeing symptoms of "weekness."
