BBSHD PAS set to 1 when turning on...disable?

I'm able to program by BBSHD but what I can not seem to change is the default PAS level to 0. I've had a few BBS02/HD motors in my time, and I recall most having PAS start at 0. For some reason, my BBSHD PAS is default to 1 what is a PITA if you are not expecting it. Each time I ride it I have to re...

Re: BBS DCP14 Full Color Screen dead??

Thanks amberwolf, Is there companies that can repair them? I tested with another screen, and the bike worked...so it if it were the cable, it would be the short 6" cable between the screen and the plug going to the controller. I'm not sure the odds of broken wires, I really didn't pull that hard but...

BBS DCP14 Full Color Screen dead??

I was using my BBSHD with DCP14 full color screen for a quick spin. Shut it off...then tried to turn it back on and it would not power back up. I though "aw crap, I fried the controller" or something. Luckily I had a older model C965 screen on another bike I was able to hook up to my BBSHD and low a...

Cool. Thanks guys. The mongoose is 20” wheels what is perfect...but the price. Plus it’s missing a panel and the charger does not work. Aka the batteries are probably toast too.

Re: Throttle without PAS BBS02

No PAS Level uses PAS 0 from the controller; PAS 1 uses PAS 2 from the controller; PAS 2 uses PAS 4 from the controller; PAS 3 uses PAS 6 from the controller; PAS 4 uses PAS 8 from the controller, and; PAS 5 uses PAS 9 from the controller. This is golden and what I was looking for :). I’ll test it ...

Re: Throttle without PAS BBS02

From Karl Gessleins oft consulted blog, I believe you change the level for assist level 1. Your pics show it at 0. I set Assist for level 1 to zero, in that if I went to PAS1, it would not give any PAS but let me freely use the throttle. At least in logic this is what I thought it would do. What I ...

Re: Throttle without PAS BBS02

This seems a little different than my issue... My throttle works fine in PAS, just I’m not able to rig a pas where with zero assist so I can have a throttle only mode What I don’t get is why the changes made while connected to controller ST app, don’t really apply. How is that possible and what’s th...

Anyone? They are both identical AH batteries (4ah 18v)

So it will be 36v 4ah.

Power Tool Batteries in a Series

I've been using my powertool batteries (Rigid 18V) to power an ebike. Been working great. The BMS in the battery acts as the LVC and everything seems to be great. The power tools themselves only use the positive and negative terminal, meaning the balancing must be coming from the battery BMS...not t...

Straight Answer on Using Lithium Power Tool Batteries

Can I simply connect to the positive and negative connections to power my device and call it a day? There always ...

Re: 12v lithium battery type (with photos)

Thanks guys. Good info.

Just curious...if the wall wart charger is gone, can I charge it via the power leads (+&-)? I can set my hobby RC charger to less than 1 amp charge rate.

Re: ebike controller with any type of BMS in it?

Seems hes saying theres somethign more than just a connection required to activate the output and/or input to the packs, via the BMS . Well it works and I was drawing a good 500W at 18v with no issues by just connecting to the + and - outputs. It might also just limit the current they can output, w...

Thanks guys. Good idea to test the voltage before and after cutout. I’m thinking battery as well. So here’s the thing I’m confused about...what happens if I run an 18V battery with a controller that’s not designed for it? I tried an 18v battery and it worked like a champ...no cutting out If the batt...

Re: ebike controller with any type of BMS in it?

Interesting.

With what you said in your last post, you'd imagine power tool batteries to have BMS then as well? Or how are they prevented from damage during discharge and cells becoming un-equal?
