Description: Green Shed Conversions did the conversion in our garage in 19 days. It seemed like forever! They're great folks. The HiPower cells have proved to be a bad choice. Of the 80 cells, at least 10 are defective and it may be more like 17. The weakest ones have 50-60 AH capacity instead of 100 and it's killing the overall range of course. Warranty replacements are on the slow boat from China. Overall, it been a great experience and is a daily thrill to drive.
