    I would assume many here would have been aware of Jack Rickard. He was an engineer & hugely into EVs, green energy, battery storage, Tesla battery tech, inverters etc.

    He was converting cars to electric long before Tesla I believe & had a website/business/youtube channel -

    He had recently purchased a Tesla Model Y.

    Sadly, he passed away a few days ago at 65 :(.

    So sad. His work converting cars and broadcasting over the internet was inspirational; just as he intended; to stimulate the worldwide interest of others in EVs. And here we are today; one of many communities of interest in EVs and EV owners.

    Very sad to hear. Far too young. I recently saw a video on YouTube where he was pretty much the saviour for many Tesla Roadster owners.
