    Advice on ebike conversion kit for 30mile commute

    ill try charging it off this time to see and check the cell voltages after. in my case where some cells still show more wear than others (the same 4 finish 0.05v lower than others )isnt it wise to always do balancing if they are less than perfect now. it seemed to correct the sagging problem i...

    Advice on ebike conversion kit for 30mile commute

    well the charger has a loud cooling fan and i always charge indoors.so im aware of it. The leaflet that came with it said "the charger will continue to switch on and off after charging ,this is normal,this is the battery balancing do not unplug" .However it never did while i had the battery...

    Advice on ebike conversion kit for 30mile commute

    So much for the vaunted 30Q then. i thought it was supposed to be the best. with a 14s5p giving 37.5amps continous,well above a bbshd using 24-30amps for moderate periods. i doubt ive charged the battery 70-80 times over the year.

    Advice on ebike conversion kit for 30mile commute

    Hmm thats interesting.Everything ive learned so far from people says the opposite.when i had my issues recently with the badly balanced bbshd battery.i trickle charged with a mobile phone charger all the cells to the same voltage,when nearly drained. Then when i charged switched on, for the...

    Bafang 250W amazing range

    Its a great motor isnt it. Despite having a bbshd i still use my 350w version more.Range anxiety limits the bbshd unless you can afford a huge expensive triangle battery.Have you set your bbs01 up with 'carls special sauce' programming? i find that works well.

    Battery capacity running down

    Excellent news.i feel annoyed at the lack of charging instructions too. Sadly in my case a whole year of incorrect charging caused irreversible damage. I was hoping it would still be in time for you.

    Advice on ebike conversion kit for 30mile commute

    Regarding my post a short while ago on reduced capacity of my bbshd52v 30Q battery.ie 58.8v permanently down to 57.5v. Do you think this is why after 1500 miles in a year that happened? Not just because it never got balanced.due to me not knowing it had to be switched on when charging. But...

    Bafang 250W amazing range

    yes i added the 2nd battery so i cld use max assist most of the time,hence slightly worse. An definately full on uphill.i guess i feel low assist i might as well ride a regular bike.but my slightly arthritic 50 year old knees love it. id never get up a hill in PAS1-2 theyd ignite.

    Bafang 250W amazing range

    good tip,ive found more recently riding both the bbs01 & bbshd feel much better leaving on the 17t-20t cogs all the time.both have 42t narrow/wide chainrings.

    Bafang 250W amazing range

    incredible i just dont know how all you guys on here get these ranges. My bbs01 18amp on a giant sedona only ever gave 27miles on a 17.4ah battery. Derestricted and mainly used on 4 of 5 levels PAS.last few miles crawling back on PAS1-2. Now it has 2 batteries totaling 30ah i still only get 40...
