Re: SLA Batteries, the Peukert Effect on 24v 12Ah

How do you parallel SLA at the cell level!!??? It's perfectly ok to parallel lead-acid batteries of different capacity. Hi SamTexas, I thank you for replying and I am fortunate as I paralleled two batteries of the same capacity and age. Since I have a houseboat and RV, I try to keep things simple a...

Re: SLA Batteries, the Peukert Effect on 24v 12Ah

Last night I used just one SLA battery charger and I notice this morning that my charge voltage is a 27.75, so I can use the charger port on the scooter to charge both packs (albeit slower). I guess if recharge time is an issue I can disconnect the second battery pack and use my spare battery charg...

Re: SLA Batteries, the Peukert Effect on 24v 12Ah

More on what I experienced. At the time I had an EVG electric bike, in 24v. This was a pretty inefficient brushed hubmotor bike, using the heinzmann motor. These motors were internal gear motors, with a very low ratio. So the 24v bike could climb a wall, but never go faster than 12 mph on the flat....

Re: SLA Batteries, the Peukert Effect on 24v 12Ah

If you can conveniently parallel the two packs and run them as one bigger battery, DO IT. You will see a big improvement in the peukerts effect voltage sag. So you will have more volts under load increasing performance. Plus, since the now larger pack is being discharged at a lower discharge rate, ...

Hello Everyone, I should introduce myself. I just bought a Currie Ezip 750 scooter on sale (new) from Walmart and I am throughly enjoying it, and I am hooked on electric scooters.

Re: Making my Schwinn E1000 scooter go ....

Hi, I'm also in Montreal, so glad to hear that there's another scooter rider here. I have a Ezip 750 and am wondering how you enjoy the Lipo batteries?

I am considering the Lipo's also, what tips would you recommend for me, since mine uses 24v 12aH SLA's

IAN...
