Re: Tool battery (Makita) mounts for ebikes

I'd definitely buy one if I had makita cells. In fact, looking at makita chargers and battery packs now... LOL

Re: Greenworks 40v G-MAX disassembled- 11C rating?

So I did a boo boo and hooked up reverse polarity to my Greenworks 40v g-max pack and poof the pcb or bms went up in smoke? I have it disassembled and it is showing correct voltage. I have another old battery that I am going to try and scavenge in the hopes that it might be the BMS. There doesn't se...

Re: Why I'm pulling my Bafang BBS02

An old thread, but I am going to chime in after DIYing it for years with ebikes. I bought a BBS02 from Micah Toll when it was the new thing (not sure the date). When I got it I bought a bunch of tools to install it. It ran for about 50 miles before the hall sensors fried. I didn't ask for my money b...

Re: Back from the dead and Izip Question

It's a 48v controller? If it's a 36v controller in there be careful not to overvolt it. I did this by running 36v on my original currie controller long ago.

Re: Back from the dead and Izip Question

Find the original terminals into the controller? Test the original battery terminal location and let er rip. Worst case scenario: You need a new battery and a new controller... LOL

Re: Tool battery (Makita) mounts for ebikes

The other tool packs I use for home use is the Ryobi 18v format, but the form factor sucks for ebikes in it has that dongle connector. I try and stick with formats I already have and greenworks 40v seems to have a lot of tools and now knockoff batteries. Amazon also, has knockoff ryobi and other bra...

Re: Back from the dead and Izip Question

Ooh, do you have any pictures of how you wired it? My biggest concern is keeping the controller in play to use the original throttle with PAS modes. Mine is the 48v version, however so not sure it's exactly the same. Looks like this https://images.app.goo.gl/qnwK4aDbxysh7qgg8 https://endless-sphere...

Re: Tool battery (Makita) mounts for ebikes

Sideways they could easily fit in the water bottle placement. My greenworks batteries are 6ah 200wh and 3 of them in parallel would easily power an ebike. The cells I haven't tested yet. But, so far so good.

Re: Tool battery (Makita) mounts for ebikes

I like the greenworks 40v battery packs. Please be sure to post how you mount the those to the frame. They are 6.4" x 3.2" x 3.4" so sliding into the triangle from the side won't work since crank clearance is only 5". If you mount them above the crank 6.4" still to wide for leg clearance. Rotate it...

Re: Back from the dead and Izip Question

I have an old currie ezip frame with a brushless motor kit. The original was 24 v brushed rear motor. I am currently using 40v greenworks batteries that can do double duty in my lawn tools. After using ping batteries and dangerous lipo I really like the easy design of using plug and play tool type b...

Re: Greenworks 40v G-MAX disassembled- 11C rating?

Just bumping this thread to see if anyone can give me any help figuring out how to power a Greenworks digipro trimmer with a 48v ebike battery, see thread below. Kind of the opposite of what most people are trying to do in this thread. Since the tools are cheap with no batteries I'd like to run a t...

Wineboy's Greenworks 40v battery build.

It's been a while since I dusted off my ebike parts. But, I couldn't resist getting some of my old ebike parts back together again. So I repurposed my old ebike frame from and old ezip mountain trailz that had a rear brushless motor and put a 9c front motor.Then I used an old crystalyte sensorless 3...

Re: Large front/small back wheel

I think a dual motor cargo bike could be used with a mid drive and for hills use a geared motor for the extra power to climb. But, I have no experience.
