Re: Reliable aliexpress battery pack?

Do test it for range right now you're tr...

Re: Reliable aliexpress battery pack?

Reason by the way for the 36V is I got the bike used, I really did not research ebikes much, prices for new and ones that are really great quality are well beyond my budget. I'd go above 36V but with a European standard 250j motor, I don't want to tempt fate....
