2013 fleet

Some of the ACDC Fleet from left to right; 2011 Nissan Leaf, 2003 Civic Hybrid, 2000 Honda Insight, 2011 Chevy Volt, 2005 Ford Escape Hybrid, 2004 Prius and 2001 Prius.  (2007 Toyota Highlander Hybrid AWD, Prius 2010 and 2007 Camry Hybrid not shown)

Simply stated

“ACDC exists to keep Independent Shops in Business” 

“We make sure your 12 volt brain is well developed and then we create a high voltage brain to use along with it. Where the two brains match up the learning is easy but sometimes ACDC will break the connection between the two so your 12 volt brain is not used on a high voltage problem.”

New L3 Prep Book and Web training package.   Here is one review:

Craig, Wow, the book is amazing, the recorded video is awesome. Thanks so much for putting this together.

In the video, you mention sending lots of different info to my email. Could you send me that info.

Also, I would like to purchase another movie, still have to decide which (the $900 complete pack is tempting, but out of the budget to start into hybrids at this point), the OTC meter with insulation tester, and make a donation to the faat cats. My test is next Saturday, so Ideally I could get the video key early in the week to watch it.

Thanks, Jon

Also, I have a question about inverter controls with the IGBT and diodes.

Rebuilding NiMH Batteries. The RMD companies and doing it yourself FREE Webinar

Craig Van Batenburg, CEO of ACDC, has had many complaints about aftermarket HV battery rebuilders selling poor quaility packs. ACDC will invite these companies to a "Town Hall" on line meeting about NiMH battery construction and get to the bottom of what is going on. In the process you will learn how to do this yourself, of you so desire. Because of limited space our ACDC shops are first in line, but anyone can sign up. 100 spots only.
