Yes that one precisely. I hope it will keep on performing well (around 2 C constant & 3C burst)... the pack is not getting warm but these last weeks were very cold here and heat was not an issue !
I found out that 30 amps max is what i need for my daily rides in the city, fast enough to ride safe but not reaching dangerous speeds (over 40/45 km/h).
For my next mountain bike project, i'll need more current to get something fun to ride so i might have to deal with lipos

If you pull continuously 30A you may end up with much less cycles.
Why not consider the new Zippy compact? It has the same volumetric density (168wh/kg): http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/stor ... _Pack.html
But are rated 25C so you can easily pull 30-40 amps without decreasing the battery number of cycles

48V20Ah battery pack dimensions...
First pack: [ 279 x 178 x 75 mm ]
Second pack: [ 279 x 165 x 75 mm ]
The latest available: [ 300 x 185 x 75 mm ]
The latest detail coming courtesy of Judy Liu [ email@example.com ] and, if accurate, means fitting into the Falcon EV bag would be a literal stretch. A little something to consider.

So at 7kg, the 48V20AH battery top at 137wh/kg. That's not bad at all.
Do you do 100% depth of discharge frequently? And how many C do you use usually?
cwah wrote:Yeah, I'm also considering lipo, but they require at minima 15% margin (high voltage / low voltage) capacity.
So a 140wh/kg lipo is equivalent to a 119wh/kg battery. (140wh-15%).
A 160wh/kg lipo is a zippy compact, and 160wh-15% = 136wh/kg usable battery.
The zippy compact would be preferable if they were cheaper. But they are also 20% more expensive than the NMC.
That's why I'm still hesitating
