Batteries are at the end of their life. Unknown life span of the motor brushes or the wear and tear from the motor driving the bike through the Nexus 7 speed internal-gear hub.
I could get the iZip Zuma or the Pedego Cruiser. Both are 36v, lithium, rear hub, and seem to be of good quality. But at that price point, will I be disappointed going hub motor? I have no level ground on my 5 mile commute. 14 traffic lights. Mainly short hills with a 10-15% grade. One long 10% grade.
If a 500w hub motor won't work on these hills, for the same price I could fit the 450w eZip Trailz with 2 lifepo battery packs. I've read many positive reviews about the torque it has.
Any comments or suggestions welcome!

Not likely they would shutter as on your bike. We had a flat, took it to a differnet bike shop than we bought it. They not only fixed it for free but signed up to be a dealer for Pedego. They were very impressed with the quality of all the components.
