Default Hybrid charging?

Hello,

So I have graduated to the big leads with the purchase of the 700E and have spent the last few weeks upgrading my power supplies and chargers! I went with the Prolab 6 and two Dell 6650 power supplies. So I have been sitting here for the last couple of hours researching portable generators when I had an epiphany!! I have a 2011 Hyundai Sonata HYBRID, which runs off of a lipo battery! Why wouldn't I be able to charge my batterys off of my car lipo system?! Am I crazy?!

Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?!

-Martin

How many volts does a hybrid work off of? I can't imagine in wouldn't work if you can find a place to tap off 24V from the system... you would be good for a LOT of charges!

The hybrid Sonata pack is a 5.3Ah, 270V pack. That is only 1431Wh, or just over 6x the energy in a 6s 5000mAh pack.

If that's the case.. why don't they just use a couple $100 deep cycles to power that hybrid. Crazy!

Deep cycles are heavy and large compared to lipos, they can not handle deep discharges, can not be charged or discharged at high rates, have a low working voltage, etc. There are many reasons they chose lipos.
