I'm on the Board of Directors of our local electric coop in Oregon. A month or two ago we took delivery of a PHEV conversion that we had done to one our Ford Escape hybrids. Within the first six weeks a problem developed. Not with the Lithium Ion battery pack or the software conversion but with the charger. The charger failed completey and had to be returned to Colorado for repair or replacement.

For those interested in reading an article about this conversion here is a link to a newletter with that article http://www.salemelectric.com/bulletin/2008/0308_InfoBulletin.pdf . The article does not mention the failed charger unit as that just happened within the last couple of weeks.
