Hello, I’m Richard, founder of EV4U Custom Conversions. Just a few comments regarding the Hands-On Workshops and the Online Workshop.

I really enjoy the Hands-On Workshops and meeting folks from all over the world. The Workshops are always a great time and everyone learns a lot, including me. I am frequently asked which Workshop I recommend so I am addressing that here.

I recommend the Online EV Workshop for the following reasons.

More content than the Hands-On Workshop due to not having a time restriction.

More examples and demonstrations, because we do not have the time restriction.

You have one year of access to the materials with the Online version, versus three days. Plus you can review the material as many times as you like during that time frame.

No lodging or travel costs. No jet lag.

Plus with the Online version you receive an hour of FREE consultation time. That’s a $120 value.

After this pandemic is over, we will again offer the Hands-On Workshops, but I wanted to share my opinion as to which option I recommend and why.

“If you’re looking for information about a Do-It-Yourself EV conversion, look no further.  Richard van Wyhe and EV4U have what you need.  After purchasing an EV kit from another supplier, I was very disappointed by the lack of information and support.  Hoping to fill the gaps in my knowledge, I turned to EV4U’s Online EV Workshop.  Bottom line, EV4U gave me the information I needed to make good choices about converting my vehicle.  They provided not only general electrical education, but “how to” demonstrations and the information I needed to personalize my installation.  I couldn’t have completed my project as quickly, or professionally, without their help.  EV4U’s Online EV Workshop was worth every penny!”
Chris from Salt Lake City, Utah
