The way ping has his batterys setup with the bms you just get back from a ride plug in and leave it.
You would spend a lot of time messing about with charging the individual packs if you went with a lipo and the learning curve is supper steep and you don't have any room for error with this being your only battery pack.
My recommendation for someone new coming into ebikes is to buy something that they can rely on from the get go and then later on when you have a backup play around with more complicated battery solutions.
With my 36v combines 11ah i get about 25 miles range on my 9c 6x10.
Another caveat with a ping pack would be that you wouldn't have to worry about LVC as the pack would have that built into itself.
Dogman has said before that the 15ah 48v ping is about the best size as its got good range but still fits on the bike reasonably easily.
Yeah I think your right, dogman recommended ping aswell, I got caught in the "lure of lipo", thinking I would get super speeds for cheap, but I no jack about electrics and battery's.
Yeah 48v 15ah seems pretty balanced.
