Re: Broken ebike..how to fix?

And yes, the Hall sensors were indeed plugged in. I guess they shorted the 5V power supply which is why the throttle doesn't have power and I can't get the bike to move. One thing though..wouldn't the PAS be able to get the bike to move? Its got about a chance of a snowflake in hell of working, but...

Re: Higher regen voltage than battery voltage

It might be helpful to know what controller you have. Most good controllers set the regen cutoff voltage with software, not hardware. the resistor they use to sense voltage will be the same they use to sense voltage for everything else.

Re: Broken ebike..how to fix?

Well that sucks. Telling us what brand of motor, along with pics of how you have it set up might help a bit. You said your controller doesn't need the halls, but were they hooked up when the motor spun? A common mode of failure is for there to be a short between the Phase wire and one of the Hall wi...

And anyone knows wich is best: SAMSUNG 26H vs LG EBMG vs SAMSUNG 29ET ? Welcome to the forum. You can't have 254AH out of a 10AH battery. Not po...

Re: Opinion on donor bike and overall plan for TSDZ2 conversion?

For your needs, 36v vs 48v almost doesn't matter as you rarely are needing the full power of the motor, except for climbing steep hills. And that's when you'll want 48 volts. And probably half the people who get an ebike don't want a moped, they want bionic legs. But then they ride the thing, and th...

Re: New Build with new Cycle Analyst showing 100v with 52v battery pack

If you don't fully trust your volt meter, you can charge up your battery and calibrate off that. At full charge, a 14s battery should read 58.8 volts. which should settle to 58.7 or so once connected and powering on your controller. You can then play with the multiplayer in the C Analyst until it sh...

Re: Can I use battery to charge swagcycle?

Sometimes this kind of thing works, sometimes it doesn't. it depends on how the circuit was designed. Short of an in depth analysis of the schematics for the charger, the only way to know is to try it. However, the risk is destroying the charger. Failure of that can happen in 2 ways.

Re: Long Frame Battery

Are those measurements on the outside, or the inside? If that's the inside, you should be able to get 12s 5P in there with bare cells, if you pack them tight. I don't know what your cell holder looks like, but end to end, 10 cells arranged 5X2 per layer seems to be the best use of space.

Re: Rear Hub motor magnetically locked

Welcome to the forum. If you had a motor with a short in the coils, it would be fairly easy to turn at low speeds, but the faster you turned it, the harder it would be to turn. The motor needs to move to generate enough power in the coil to cause a magnetic resistance. That magnetic field only works...

Re: Power switch names

They're also generally rated for about 12v and 20 amps. pump more through them and they do that: exactly what's in your pic. The high voltage arcs, erodes the contact points until they don't conduct as well, causing resistance that heats up the switch. It doesn't happen right away, but the End resul...

If it sat in the heat of a garage, it might have been baked to death. Lithium degrades in the heat.

Scratching my head for a while, I seem to remember Koinion cells were though to be "self balancing".
