You can fit 6 x 6S 16Ah Multistars in one too.

Re: Where to buy cheap Li-pol batteries instead of Multistar?

Just bought some 4S 8Ah Multistars in the UK reduced from £61 to £30. I think its the last of the green stock as they are now blue. https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-high-capacity-16000mah-4s-12c-multi-rotor-lipo-pack-w-xt90.html?___store=en_us VERSUS https://hobbyking.com/en_us/multistar-high-cap...

Mine goes way over 1000W with 52V and 30A but I never push it like that. But I did once to see what it would do.


52V x 30A =1560 Watts.....

Re: 6s charger

I use a pair of Meanwell NES 350-48 power supplies in parallel to charge 14S Mutistars at 700W.
You could use 3 to get 1050W.

Re: Combining 3 LiPo batteries?

A pair of these is all you need to connect them in series. You would need to seperate them if you need to balance charge but I have only had to balance mine twice in the last year and both times when I had to run slightly below 3.6V to get home... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/XT90-Battery-Harness-Adap...

Re: Combining 3 LiPo batteries?

I have used Multistars for over 3 years and as long as you charge to 4.1v that leaves a bit of headroom in case of imbalance and also gives you a much longer lifespan (still on my original batteries). Dont discharge below 3.6V and they will rarely go out of balance. I always check for balance before...

Re: Anyone have this problem with the BBSHD

Mine clicks and shakes the chain when pushing backwards.
I stripped the final drive and it was well lubed so I put fresh in and closed it back up.
I guess its just normal so as long as it doesnt get any worse I am happy with it.
2400 miles on it so far.

Re: BBSHD upgrade from 48V to 52V

Change the battery setting to UBE and it will autodetect the correct voltage.
I use my BBSHD with both 48 and 52V batteries but I use a CAV2.4 to keep an eye on the voltage.

It is an App and a Bluetooth dongle to replace the display.
And by the way, you can change any programming setting on the fly.

Re: UPGRADING TO NEW BAFANG 1000W MOTOR

If you mean the Bafang Max Ultra then only a Bafang specific frame will do.
You can buy a motor mount and fit it to a frame though.

Re: BBS02 creaking sound when i am pedaling hard

I have had creaking from mine 3 times in 2500 miles.
First time was actually the Suntour suspension post needing oiling!
Second time was the BB nut needed retightening.
Third time was one of the pedal crank bolts had worked slightly loose.

Re: Can I use the BBS02 with a 38T chainring?

Stock chainring is 44T and with an 11T rear gear you should get 30Mph... I would be careful not to overheat it with a 52V battery,best bet is to fit a temperature gauge, https://electricbike-blog.com/2015/06/07/installing-a-temperature-sensor-in-the-bbs02-unit/ A better bet would be to get a 42T Lek...

Re: Having issues charging one of my new Lipos

My BBSHD and BBS02 both have an LVC of 42V but as I use both 12S and 14S on a ride (seperately) I dont ever get that low and use a CA to monitor the voltage and always aim for home well before running out of battery.

Re: Having issues charging one of my new Lipos

You should stop discharging Multistars when the cells get down to 3.6V to keep them balanced. Its possible to take them to 3.5V if you are desperate but it will definately unbalance the cells. You need a wattmeter or at the very least a set of cell alarms to avoid damaging any more cells. I always p...
