First ride with a Cycle Analyst
More info than I'll probably ever need on watts/mile, watts used, amp hours used. Found out I used 302 watts on today's ride, of 12 miles, an average of about 25 watts/mile. All to haul home an 80# bag of Sacrete, four 10# tubs of hydraulic cement and a 10 foot length of 4" perforated drain tile and a connector hub, which were of negligable weight. Trailer wasn't happy with the load, but no tires popped. Found out that it couldn't calculate regen capacity of my solar panels because the solar recharge did not go through the external shunt, instead the MPPT controller feeds into the same leads that the battery charger uses. At least, that's what I figured, so hopefully, someone with more experience than I will tell me that I just didn't set up the CA correctly. Thanks to Zev and Justin in Vancouver for a great product!
