You need to learn about batteries.
I am not ooking for free energy. I am lookiing for teh stuff you say I need to learn. But have no clue.

I believe that I maybe the only one on this forum that has kept trying to learn stuff no mater how many of my questions go unanswered.

Re: Programable Controller for Cycloen3000?

I finally understand the reason to buy a programmable controller:
My controller for my Cyclone3000 is set to cut off too high:
30% of 58.8v = 17.64v but my controller cuts off at about 39v which is 66.326% of 58.8v
yet 39v is 30.7% of 78.8v

Programable Controller for Cycloen3000?

I want to build a 2kW large battery Samsung 29E's for my cycletruck. And I need to know what would be the advantage of using the programmable controller for the cyclone 3000. I have very little space but I think I can stuff 224 cells into my compartment.

What would I alter in the programming?

reasons to use a programmable controller?

1. My controller is not programmable and a new programmable controller for my Cyclone3000 will cost $100! What are the reasons to use a programmable controller? 2. My motor will handle up through 72v nominal. [more voltage equals more Watt~hours! and More RPM per Ah~ But no increase in thrust] 3. An...

Re: Cargo Trike vs Long wheelbase Bike

Now this is something that would be too complex for most people, but I have been looking at it and think it is not too bad. This is not overly complex, it just takes time to understand it. Like the center of gravity must be high enough to be able to tilt. So if it is loaded with bricks it maynot til...

I am going to have to hang a Cyclone mini under the seat, then sell it to build a new bike with Sugar Bear's long springy fork. So can any one tell me about pedal sensors?

Re: 12 turn Hub-motor vs Mid-drive for hill climbing ??

Not sure I understand this....it looks like the thrust drops off too fast, I would need to fine tune the turns to fit my climbing situation?

ok what does this comparison tell me? looks like the thrust is the same. so if I want moreg thrust torque I need to use a lower gear... 36v compared to 72v.JPG But how would it compare to a slower wound motor? looks like that is the way to get more torque thrust....but not much, and it drops off fas...
