I charge 9 cells at a time all connected together in parallel and have a split in the middle of the pack of an 18s battery, again yo...

Re: How fast can my 250W chinese motor go?

The speed limit is always set via the controller. If you change over the controller with an LCD display then you should be good to overclock it. Most LCD displays show you the power of the bike being used in watts, I would say you will have no problem riding constantly at 350watts unless its a reall...

It won't surprise me if Toyota comes out with a solid-state battery, Japan is the home to mass production of Lithium cells after all. The reason why Toyota wouldn't be lying is the fact they are a publically listed (stocks) company, they can't lie or else someone will sue them claiming they bought t...
