The Final ‘Say’ on Freedom3 & 4

We have now done just over 3100 km with Freedom3 over the past three months since we took delivery in August ‘14 of our “electrifying” Landrover 130 Defender game viewer.

To put things into perspective - that’s a Diesel saving of 564 Lt already, at 5.5 km per litre in our harsh environment - this in turn equates to a fuel saving of P 5617.00 (approx. ZAR 6684.23) and not taking into account fuel transport costs.

Lebo and Lynn, our two lady guides responsible for Freedom3, have done many game drives with our guests and the feedback from all have been overwhelmingly positive. We have been experimenting with Freedom3 and at one stage I drove F3 to our local international airport with nine passengers and a luggage trailer packed to the hilt. The 600 N/torque came in handy and made light work of our thick sandy tracks. We are looking forward to February 2015 with the addition of a second electric game viewer.

Our FIRST electric skimmer, Freedom4 has done 55 hours since our official launch on the 7th of November ‘14. With our conventional 40hp 4 stroke outboard motors we manage a fuel consumption of 2.15 Lt per hour, making a saving of 118 Lt petrol in this short time. With our 180 x 60Ah Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries and 30kW permanent magnet electric motor we discovered that this boat can now actually go further on a “tank” than in its previous guise without loss of performance to boot!

All our guests are blown away by the “magic carpet ride” you get on this craft, the only noise you hear is the rush of water in its wake, at speed. As with our electric game viewer, our guides and guests agree, that spending time on these game viewing platforms are much more relaxing for them and the animals they come to see on our slice of heaven, here on the banks of the iconic Chobe River.

“It was an awesome experience to be part of a great team of unparalleled and talented creative men. For me it was a first. An exciting expedition and fascinating tour on a unique & exquisite design of an electric car. Naturally animals hate noise particularly that associated with human’s craftsman & therefore the best ingenuity to get as close would be none other than by means of a mute mobile conveyor. The launch itself was marvellous showing a high sense of planning & purpose. It is through such outings that one learns the outside world & comes to appreciate what other people are made of.”

I would like to express my heartfelt appreciation for being part of the launch, without which l could have not had this lifetime incredible experience, to that l will always remain grateful to FreedomWON.

We would love  to share our experience in driving with Freedom3 (Electric game viewer vehicle)!

Being in the tourism industry for almost 20 years, we felt very honored to be some of the first to experience this in Africa.

We would describe it as unreal!  Usually with starting your game drive, one has to exhilarate a bit to reach the required gear for the drive which is usually quite low, but the problem is stopping and starting with each sighting:  This vehicle has to go through  the same routine.  With the electric vehicle it is a smooth quiet start and finish.  It is wonderful to drive in the bush without hearing  engine noise and without exhaust emissions  – especially present with diesel powered game viewers.

We loved the experience and would definitely recommend it to all in the Game Industry.

"After almost a decade in the bushveld and 100's of game drives to boast, when it comes to FreedomWON's Electric Game Drive Vehicle it is definitely more a case of 'feeling is believing'. I wish you all the success in this passionate and necessary endeavour."

I imagined the whole week before the visit on how it would feel like to drive an electric car? Obviously I drove a golf cart before with an electric motor and also scalextric cars. HaHA! I imagined that stupid sound of a DC motor with the whistling armature to be flying about within the cab, I also imagined that the passengers would have to make peace with the ugliness similar to the sound of a dentist drill. Surely the driver “would” be used to it. HaHA!

Then when it all happened, __________nothing, except brute power with massive torque and speed, did you ever imagine going on a Roller Coaster with no sound? No, well that is it! The WEG permanent Magnet motor with no brushes and the pure genius from the designer ensured something unimaginable. I mean how can you reach that speed in a  2.5 ton vehicle without the racket of a combustion engine in such a short space?

Freedom1, what an amazing experience!

GO “Greenie” GO!

I was surprised by the power and torque of the motor; as well as the way in which the weight of the JEEP although substantial, did not seem like a big deal for the battery powered motor.

It was certainly a trip to be remembered. Thanks to Freedom Won for my first experience in a battery powered vehicle.

My perceptions have been changed after test driving Freedom1. I experienced a battery operated 4x4 vehicle with loads of power far beyond my expectations.

You have to drive it yourself to understand it. Well done and all the best for the future.

Ek is al my hele lewe in die elektriese bedryf betrokke, ek was 4 jaar oud toe die gogga my gebyt het.

Maar in 46 jaar het ek na die toetsrit met Feedom no1,die grootste ervaring in my loopbaan geondervind.

Maar ek wil net noem dat die woord vryheid nie net as n woord gesien moet woord nie, n mens kan nie se dat hy of sy vryheid het nie, as hy of sy nie di’t self ervaar het nie.

Dit is ongelukkig n ervaring wat baie moeilik beskryf kan word, maar ek gaan probeer dit beskryf soos ek dit ervaar het.

My toetsrit het begin met n beskrywing van  hoe Freedom1 ontstaan het asook n verduideliking.

Wat verander is en waar wat geinstalleer is, dit is om die minste te se baie profesioneel en top vakmanskap wat op Freedom1 gedoen is al hoewel dit nog net n proto model is, is dit met die hoogste gehalte gedoen.

Ek het  dadelik die gemoedsrus gekry. Die plasing van toerusting is volgens my prefek gedoen.

Daarna is ons met Freedom1 in die pad. Die toetsrit het begin op ‘n grond pad vir 3 -4 km, helling op en af , ons het motors verby gegaan op n spoed van 100 tot 110 km per uur vir om en by 30 tot 40 km. Dit is in hierdie stadium waar ek regtig die ervaring gekry het wat dit was wat !!vryheid!! Beteken. Dit voel of ‘n mens in ‘n droom lewe, my hare het van opwinding gerys.

‘n Mens kan nie se dit is verniet nie, maar dit is baie naby daar aan. Amper so naby as my onder broek aan my lyf is as jy kan verstaan wat ek jou wil verduidelik. Ek moes my weg skeur van die ontwep en terug beweeg na my diesel voertuig, Ek wou hom net saam vat.

Die elektiese voetuig het my geamuseer, en ek voel na die berekening wat ek gedoen het met my diesel engin in my voertuig, sal ek in die lewens duur van die battery, die geld wat ek gaan spandeer op die ombouing, dubbel terug kry in hierdie tydperk.

Moet aseblief nie my woord vat van die ervaring wat ek gehad het nie , toets dit jou self! En oortuig jou self. DIT IS FREEDOM EN DIT IS SO TE SE VERNIET EN DIT IS MEER AS GROEN EN GOUD VIR DIE VOORT BESTAAN VAN ONS NATUUR. SO DOEN JOU DEEL EN DOEN NET EERS DIE TOETS RIT... DIE RES SAL VAN SELF KOM.

Antony ek dink jy moet n nobel prys kry vir jou deel van die beskerming van ons planeet se voort bestaan deur hier die stap met freedom 1 te neem. Ek gaan my deel doen en dit is om hierdie projek met alles wat ek kan,dit te ondersteun. Daarom gaan ek Freedom No ... my volgende voertuig maak.

En daarom kan ek dit wat ek ervaar het met sterkte aanbeveel.

With the recent announcement to mothball South Africa s first electric car to be mass produced, the Joule, what can we do if we want a pure electric car without having to travel the world?

Well that’s what one ordinary guy from Krugersdorp asked himself and came up with his own solution. It’s called Freedom1, and yes it’s an all-electric car. What amazed me about this car, is that this guy took an ordinary everyday car - an old Jeep Cherokee 2000 model and converted it to electric!

OK I’ll admit, I was sceptical when I first met Antony a couple of years ago, and saw the car standing under a makeshift roof with gearbox on the floor. Being a technical person myself, I thought this guy is crazy, it will never work… electric cars should be built by car manufacturers who spent hours with some of the best engineers and designers in the world building this stuff. But sometimes in simplicity there is an answer.

Antony English is the name of the guy, an Electro-Mechanical Engineer from Krugersdorp. When after the motor of the Jeep Cherokee gave its last breath, he decided why not try to convert it to electric? It sounds easy but it was not. He started about ten years ago with the project and it involved a lot of blood, sweat, money and tears. After a successful prototype in 2011/2012, the company Freedom Won was started in the view of being able to take any normal petrol aspirated car and converting it to electric.

So how long does a conversion take and what are the costs? Well if you supply the car yourself (they will also source a “One” for you) it can take up to four months, with shorter lead times envisioned in the future. The cost can be anything up to R350 000, also depending on the car and specific requirements. The batteries will last 10 years, but this is currently normal for any electric car using batteries.

Cost calculations are under way to determine what is the cost of running an electric car compared to a fossil fuel car, but initial calculations indicate that it can be up to 60/70% cheaper based on current electricity and fuel prices. But in my view, as an environmentalists the biggest advantage is the saving in greenhouse gas emissions which is significant, not only CO2 but also other chemicals which effects our health are reduced.

This year the first “One” was displayed at the Minex show at NASREC with huge interest, not only from the public, but also industry, who want to lower their carbon footprint, and talks are underway with one of the biggest mining houses to convert all their cars used on site  to “One’s”.

I have seen the car in motion and what also impressed me the most was the lack of noise from the engine, that we have become so accustomed to and take for granted. Also everything is neatly built and packaged, and easy to use, which I think the car manufactures sometimes forget.

I was definitely impressed and convinced that the “One” is the way to go, with most South African families needing two to three cars for mom and kids, why not consider making your second or third car a “One” and start saving?

Optimise your Stationary Power by using LiFePO4

Lithium Iron Phosphate Cells (LiFePO4) – No one can afford to be outside of this revolution!

It is not a case of LiFePO4 being affordable, it is a case of can one afford to use lead acid? The life cycle cost of LiFePO4 cells is a quarter of lead acid batteries. The upfront costs for a pack vary from similar to double depending on the application, but one must consider that in 3 to 6 years’ time the lead acid batteries must be replaced and the LiFePO4 cells will last 13 to 20 years depending on the application and pack design.

LiFePO4 cells have revolutionised the potential and life cycle cost of operating battery based power systems. These cells have a cycle life 10 times that of typical deep cycle lead acid batteries. They only cost approximately 50% more to purchase upfront, however the saving on life cycle cost is substantial.

LiFePO4 cells are available in a wide range of sizes to accommodate loads of a few amps to over 1000 amps. They can deliver sustained high power without excessive heat generation. There are no gases released and LiFePO4 cells are also thermally stable. They can be charged repeatedly to full capacity in less than 60 minutes with no appreciable loss in performance.

LiFePO4 Batteries  vs Lead Acid

Backup and Off Grid Battery Packs Using Superior Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) Cells – the next Generation of Energy Storage

Backup and Off Grid Battery Packs Using Superior Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) Cells – the next Generation of Energy Storage

Lithium Iron Phosphate cells,  or LiFePO4 for short,  are beginning to dominate the alternate energy storage sphere amongst the more discerning designers and customers in Europe and some other parts of the world. Freedom Won has been using these cells in electric vehicles for nearly four years already and the company is now also providing this superior technology for stationary power applications or all sizes.

Freedom Won provides competitive prices made possible by bulk imports as well as comprehensive technical backup and design assistance. Freedom Won has also now extended the battery warranty in most applications to 5 years spurred by our confidence gained from our own test programme in electric vehicles, which is far more demanding on the batteries than stationary power systems. The expected life in off grid systems is more than 10 years, and as much as 20 years in grid tied back up installations with occasional cycling. The end of life is defined by the cells containing 80% of their Beginning of Life (BoL) capacity. The capacity deterioration over time is linear (the deterioration does not become substantially more rapid with extended use), and the cells could therefore be used for much longer periods if a lower end of life capacity is acceptable.  

The initial higher cost of installing a LiFePO4 system as compared to Lead batteries is dramatically overshadowed by the savings in the total life cycle cost, calculated as a cost per kWh delivered by the battery pack during its lifetime. Even Lead Crystal batteries cannot compete on life cycle cost. The lifetime cost per kWh can be as low as 25% of the cost of typical lead acid deep cycle batteries. The main reason for this is that the cells offer up to 10 times the number of cycles than your average deep cycle lead battery and as much as 5 times that of the more robust single cell types. This is especially apparent in cases of high current discharge and charging scenarios, further contrasted by high ambient temperatures, both of which are not suitable for lead batteries.

Another top benefit to the customer is the far greater efficiency of the LiFePO4 cell, which is typically better than 96%. A typical efficiency for lead batteries is 65%, although empirical data has demonstrated as low as 55% in a house PV system where the Depth of Discharge (DoD) is limited to 20% as a measure to lengthen the life of the lead acid cells. In a grid tied back up scenario this results in significant energy savings when recharging the batteries, and in a Photo Voltaic (PV) installation it enables a reduction of the size of the array by as much as 30% with the same usable energy.

The advantages of LiFePO4 cells over lead cells are extensive so a full elaboration is not included in this article. A summary is however provided in the table below, and further questions posed to Freedom Won will be welcomed.

Table: Summary of Benefits of Using LiFePO4 Cells in Stationary Power Applications

Comparison Aspect Lead Acid LiFePO4
Cycle Life (50% DoD with 80% remaining capacity, 30 deg C ambient temperature) 500 to 1300 cycles depending on manufacturer and model Up to 5000 cycles
Calendar Life Average (poor in high temperature or partial/full discharge condition or infrequent cycling) Excellent – no sulphation, partial charge storage is no problem, regular cycling is not required, heat tolerant
Charge – discharge efficiency 60-70% typical depending on current. Typically rated capacity is based on 10 hour discharge (C10) 96%, consistent throughout current range. Rated capacity is based on 20 minute discharge (3C), a one hour or longer discharge will actually give 10% more than the rated capacity.
Temperature resilience Poor – temperatures above 25 deg C significantly reduce the calendar life Excellent – ambient temperatures up to 45 deg C will not affect the life of the cell at all.
Up Front Cost Cheaper 20 to 50% more expensive up front than Lead Acid depending on what lead acid cells are used for comparison
Life Cycle Cost per kWh R2.50 to R6 depending on battery type and model R1,50 (approx.)
Quick Charge Time Typically should not be done in less than 5 hours 1 hour standard, 30 min quick
Discharge Current Higher discharge than C10 (10 hours), or 0.1xC rating causes substantial loss in efficiency and affects life C1 (one hour discharge) is standard, higher currents are also acceptable up to 3C (3 x Ah rating) continuous with negligible loss in efficiency and cell life
Gravimetric Energy Density Poor

Weigh 3 to 4 times less – reduced transport costs and installation effort.

Volumetric density more than 2 times higher – less than half the space required

Pack Capacity

Loss of 30% in heat (70% pack efficiency) means pack must be larger to meet a specific output objective

Max practical DoD is 50%, which requires a larger pack to stay above this DoD to prevent rapid life deterioration

Pack can be sized to 60% of the “rated” capacity of a lead acid pack because of 96% efficiency and ability to discharge on regular occasion to 80% DoD with much lower effect on life reduction
Charging Energy Source Size The charging energy source must provide an additional 30 to 40% energy to overcome the inefficiency of the pack at substantial cost Only about 4% of the energy is lost to heat – big savings in charging energy and capital on PV installations etc

When sizing a LiFePO4 pack, the rating of the cells cannot be compared to a typical lead acid rating without making some adjustments. Owing to the much higher efficiency and the ability to discharge more deeply without rapid capacity deterioration means that a LiFePO4 can be sized to about 65% of the lead acid rating if the same DoD is desired. This factor originates simply from the fact that only 65% of the rated energy is available from a lead acid battery in most backup applications, whilst 100% of the rated energy is available from LiFePO4 cells (LiFePO4 cells can deliver more than the rated capacity for moderate current applications hence the use of 100% instead of the 96% efficiency mentioned earlier). Because it is practical to use a lower DoD in LiFePO4 cells and still achieve an excellent cycle life the designer can reduce the LiFePO4 pack size even further and still provide superior performance over a lead battery pack. A typical scenario could be 50% DoD for a lead acid pack compared to 70% DoD for a LiFePO4 pack. This ultimately makes the LiFEPO4 pack energy capacity rating 46% of the lead acid rating. It is a rule of thumb to work on 50%.

LiFePO4 cells maintain their rated nominal voltage for about 95% of the discharge, whilst a lead cell voltage drops continually. When working out the Wh of a lead 12V battery one must use about 11V for the average voltage (1,8V per cell). The nominal voltage for LiFePO4 is 3.2V.

An example comparing a 200Ah LiFePO4 pack to a 520Ah lead pack is included in the below table. The theoretical energy capacity for the lead battery is reduced to 65% of the rated capacity in line 8. In line 9 the capacities are adjusted to the typical DoD expected in the design.  For this scenario the LiFePO4 pack rating is 45% (just less than half) of the lead battery rating. The LiFePO4 pack costs 65% more than the Lead battery, however as shown in line 15, after taking into account the cycle life and the kWh produced in the lifetime of the packs it is clear that LiFePO4 costs only 30% of the Lead batteries used in this example.

The Freedom Won LiFePO4 cells can be provided in various sizes. The 200Ah cell is the most popular. They can be connected in parallel strings to suit the ampere hour requirements and in parallel to suit the voltage of the system. The LiFePO4 pack must be connected to a Battery Management System (BMS) that is able to monitor the voltage of each cell and prevent any cell from exceeding the upper and lower limits. The BMS must also balance the cells to ensure that the pack can perform at its best. LiFePO4 cells do not naturally balance themselves. Freedom Won supplies the BMS configured for each application and will also supply plug and play battery packs with the BMS pre-connected if requested.
