video - How To Increase Battery Pack Voltage

I just took my wife's ebike battery and turned it from a 24V20AH pack into a 36V20AH pack by adding more 18650 cells. I made a video if anyone is interested in following along.

Absolutely: Disc capable, approx 20 mph @ 36V (it's the 328 RPM model), 36V KU65 controller which I believe is 15A. Anything else?

Rear MagicPie 3 for $99

I have a rear MagicPie 3 that I never got around to using. It is unlaced, so you'll have to either lace it yourself or have a local bicycle shop lace it into a rim for you. It comes with everything you need (motor, throttle, brake levers, etc) and you just have to put it in a wheel and add a battery...

I have a new in box 20" front q100 motor that comes with everything you need except for the battery (comes with controller, throttle, display, wire wrap, phase/hall wire extension, other odd and sundries that I can't even remember...) It's new but it's been sitting in a box for a year and half ...

I recently wrote an article about the history of Luna, how they got started and what their future plans are. Hopefully it's an interesting read for anyone who likes learning more about the ebike community and specifically how vendors come to be.

Hi MacRibs, I'm sorry you think I'm whoring out. I respect your opinion, but I don't agree with it. I have no paid ads on my site (meaning I don't accept money or free parts in return for promoting something). The parts I review are all parts that I have 100% paid for, and the same goes for the part...

Where I get most of my ebike parts

I really don't want to think about how much money I've spent on ebike parts over the last decade... I really hope it's only five figures. But either way, I've bought tons of parts from all over and now have a pretty good set of standard vendors I go to for each of the many different parts and access...

Re: idea for go-baby-go button

Regarding the power, it's actually a dual motor setup, so each motor is at about 500 watts. I hit top speed while staying under my 20A CA imposed limit, so I've still got plenty of room to increase speed 4-5 mph, even if I bump up the CA limit a bit. At 20A right now, each controller and motor is pu...

I'd really appreciate some feedback on an idea for a sort of "nitrous button" for my ebike. My setup is a dual motor Q100h build @14s with 20A limit for about 1000W peak and getting about 29 mph hot off the charger. My daily commute covers everything from small roads to 4 lane city highway...

Re: Cool new Triangle bag with carry strap

But another angle I’ve come up with for larger battery pack is using bag inside of a bag. In other words, battery pack goes into a normal tote bag with D rings for a shoulder strap. Next, stuff that into a EM3 triangle bag. Easy to take with me and looks “normal” which is always better for bypassin...

Cool new Triangle bag with carry strap

I'm really on the fence about this new triangle bag . It looks like a good waterproof pack, and the main advantages are 1) it is easily removable and 2) it has a carry strap. This would be good for people who are in a similar situation like me: I've got a big heavy triangle battery that is awkward t...

EDIT: Looks like they are sold out, but another vendor has the same horn for $5 now.

There's a 36v version too but I haven't tried that one.

Can a Bafang BPM be run at 1000W peak?

Asking for a friend that wants a second opinion. He's spooked by the fact that many vendors call it a 500W motor.

Can the motor be run at 48V with a 22A controller giving a peak theoretical power draw of 1,056W? Anyone use a setup at this level and care to share your personal experience?
