Actually ... a motors watt rating is the motors watt output at the rated volts and rpm. Typically it will use (Input) 200%+ watts at full throttle till nearing rated rpm. Input (electrical) watts is divided into output (mechanical) watts and output (thermal) watts. Best power output might require 60...

Re: new eZip motor

It dont give a price. The breakers I ordered are 40 amps so should work for the e bike I am using now. A 500 watt 36V motor so 13.8 amps is well under the rating. The next build however will be 1,350 watts @ 36V so will be 37.5 amps. I might want to order a 50 amp or 60 amp breaker for the new buil...

Very nice, l'm jealous. How many people do you think the garden can feed?
There are 33 plots for 33 families in the Family Gardens, providing a portion of their meals. Pantry Garden is on track for possibly 2000lb harvested for hundreds of our Food Pantry clients.

If I run them for about 10 miles and then take them apart and test each 2P - pack and the 4P pack what should the voltage be for each pack and what does that tell me. It should let me know if one of the packs are defective. Will it tell me the capacity of each pack ?
Voltages will be identical.

Re: new eZip motor

Capacity , voltage SAG and voltage are more important. I can see total power output up hills as well as voltage sag with the meter. I will be able to compare those for each motor set up. You will be able to see the "total power input". 1000w input might produce: >800w power output and <200w heat or...

You think you only need 5-8Ah? LC is stuck in a viscous cycle of buying/using = destroying small batteries. Most notably, using 1 small battery to get somewhere then another small battery for return trip. Possibly due to a fear of being stranded or due to his propensity for reconnecting wrong and c...
