Re: Razor Ecosmart Metro - potential upgrades?

What I'm looking to do is upgrade to a Li-ion battery...the way I read this is the controller will work...if you stay within the parameters I'm just looking for a second opinion. I going to stick with a 36V system, but what about Li-ion battery life? an excerpt from about 8 months ago https://suppor...

Re: Dumb Battery question 101 (it's the connectors dummy!)

I purchased the Anderson Powerpole Connectors (APC) starter kit, which comes with the TRIcrimp and an assortment of 15, 30, 45 amp contacts. That should arrive in a few days. My understanding of these APC are that they are designed for a round wire. Is there a special APC that is used to connect to ...

Re: Dumb Battery question 101 (it's the connectors dummy!)

Thanks Bill (billvon,) I'm pretty much "lost in the woods" at this time. I've decided to go forward, and today I'm going to replace the ammeter, for a better one. I'll be getting back to you after I've done some reading and research. I have three transports to MOD: two scooters and a bicycle. The bi...

Accelerated move to Li-ion, for two transport platforms, looking for brand suggestions

Ok, this post deals with Li-ion batteries. The problem is theft. Here in "oh, so groovy," College Town, Eugene, OR, bike theft is a huge problem. I'm sure it's a problem in your area also. It's part of the reason why I've been slow to implement Li-ion. I have realized that I can replace the Li-ion o...

Re: Dumb Battery question 101 (it's the connectors dummy!)

Picked up a GREENLEE CM-660 Clamping Meter. Pretty happy all around. Ok, I'm not happy. I looked over forum rules and I didn't see anything about mentioning brand names, so I am forging ahead. I do not sell any of this stuff and I have a lot of respect for manufacturing (all aspects of the supply ch...

Re: The Level of language we tolerate here

I always find it ironic, when people ask a question, then grump about the answer.

Re: Dumb Battery question 101 (it's the connectors dummy!)

Thanks dustNbone and everyone for the replies. I mixed up, who I was replying to, in getting back to you. I find myself a little "fried" after working on some computer networking issues, unrelated to this forum discussion. So, I'm a little distracted. But laziness, is the mother of motivation. I jus...

Re: Dumb Battery question 101 (it's the connectors dummy!)

FOLLOW UP: fechter, yes, my next move is to tin the wires and re-crimp. Then, use silver solder to attach the clip. When you say "heat" you mean some heat transfer through the battery terminals to the battery chemistry; that's good to know. Lithium batteries are now being considered and I'll explain...

Dumb Battery question 101 (it's the connectors dummy!)

First I'd like to say "great forum." A Mechanical Engineering friend told me about ES years ago, and, here I am with my first dumb question! I have a couple of Razor EcoSmart Metro Electric Scooters and it's "battery changing time" again (actually my first time.) I matched battery specs: 12V 7AH, of...
