Recent EV fire incidents prompt PURE to make changes to its chargers

The major issue with portable batteries is that heat dissipation is almost absent.

BHPian Venky03 recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Received a message from the dealer regarding the charger health camp, PURE has advised all the dealers to reduce the charger voltage from 67.2V to 66.6V after the recent fire incidents.

Most of the users are facing similar issues, the BMS issue is a serious one as they're not able to pinpoint what caused the failure.

The major issue with portable batteries is that heat dissipation is almost absent and won't be surprised to see more EVs catching fire next summer when it gets even hotter.
