Re: Headway Battery rust

Hay Scoot thanks for exploring the limits of battery techology without these steps forward and these forum to give US the courage to cut the duct tape or pull the rubber feet off the charger and find the all the srcews to see the INSIDE. Limitations is the line we set ,to step OVER !

Re: 5304 top speed @52V?

Why does your Ping only have 52v ? Mine is 57.4v after all the led lights blink. I had a 5304 with 48v12ah lead slead till it was stolen it would go 34mph for 9 miles only ! You should go at lease 30mph. Big Ping

Re: Help! Ping Disaster...

Ask Ping if it is under warranty. You may get a price break my cells were 8.50usd. 3.2v 5000mah. it came with pcb broards. The bms came with the 16 wire plug. Get a 36v BMS if you have enough cells to make a back up, then you need a 36v charger and a single cell charger for 19.00 to help balance. It...

Re: Help! Ping Disaster...

How old are are your batteries, number of cycles ? Ping has new BMS at a good price, and will help you though it. Good change if your pack has swelled there is damage. It's pretty easy once you open it up. Because if it swells the tabs can tear.
