Hopefully I can revive the 4 batteries that were not getting charged. They read 44 volts before charging so there might be hope.
I just ordered 2 more chargers from my favourite eBay seller e-crazyman.
The small cooling fan failed, causing one of the capacitors to die in a spectacular fashion blowing the top off and spreading it guts all over the inside of the charger.
Parts on the primary and secondary side of the switched mode charger were chard and one of the output fuses blew.

Wireless Lan 2.4GHz Patch Antenna - Circular Polarised.
I am only getting about 25km before the battery pack stars sagging to 500V under load. The battery pack is 600v nominal and fully charged is 665 volts.
On a warm day (25+) I can get nearer 35-40km.
Temps are in C.

Ontario's Ban on Electric Cars
In early February 2010, the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) began a secret campaign to refuse new registrations of electric cars in the province. As a result, Ontarians cannot qualify for the only incentive Ontario offers individuals for putting an electric car on the road today - a rebate of the Retail Sales Tax (but only up to $1,000.00). That incentive expires on June 30, 2010, with the introduction of the HST. We have looked for new rules, regulations or written policy to justify recent actions, and have found none.
