Batteries, chargers, motors and components made in China

I have some free time and I live in Southern China near a lot of battery assembly factories, electronics and component manufacturers. A while back a friend recommended this place as a good DIY community, and I figured with my connections and location I could offer my assistance to anyone looking to ...

Re: A123 20Ah prismatic cell

Does anyone sell them in small quantities? I have done some searching.
I've never used them before, but I live pretty close to a factory that assembles this type of cell. Let me know what you were looking to spend and I'll see if it's possible to get a few if you're interested.

Re: How do police test compliance of ebike (Australia)

I too have endured the joy of "flying" from a bicycle,... fully 8' high and 27' distant!!!! No helmet, no wall, but the concrete was no less softer upon impact. I limped my damage bike home and skipped out work for the day. I've also endured various motorcycle collisions,... including that of "pick...

Re: How do police test compliance of ebike (Australia)

A helmet has saved my life before. I was riding on the sidewalk at a good speed coming up to a corner intersection, I had to veer off to the side to avoid someone unexpectedly. I can't remember if my front wheel hit the brick wall or locked up from panic braking, but I was sent flying over the front...

Re: What got you into electric?

I'd say representative of why there's been so little interest in electric bikes over the years as they've been so impractical. But this is all that's legal in so many places. A few things I've built aren't necessarily legal, yet still not impressive performers. I think you've really hit the nail on...

It's another day and politicians are still scumbags, and people who tear down walking paths at 70kmh ruin the fun for everyone. Let's put a 5hp limit on automobiles instead, they seem to be the ones killing everyone else.

What got you into electric?

Just wonder what piqued your first interest, and what your first experience with electric vehicles/bikes was. :P For me, it was in 2006 when I first read about Tesla, and in 2008 when I drove an EV for the first time and was amazed at how convenient and practical they were, especially compared to ho...

Re: How do You Decide a Bike is Good Enough to go 50 on?

I'm guessing 800w won't cut it, that's an 1800w motor/controller I posted with it. But do you really think you'd want to be going 50 on the Boom? I'm one of the people saying NO when they want to make an ordinary bicycle do that, it's just tempting fate if the bike can't physically take it. I perso...

It's mostly falling solar energy prices that is going to disrupt the oil market, not EV. Also, geopolitics.

Re: How do You Decide a Bike is Good Enough to go 50 on?

The boom scooter is decent, I know a lot of people who have similar models here. I live in China.

That one in particular is 800w though, a little under-powered in my opinion.

Re: Comfortable speed

It depends on the environment, among foot traffic I would say 10-15 MPH is comfortable maneuvering speed. Car traffic should be around 15-20mph, closer to 18-19mph on average. I wouldn't want to go too much faster than 20 MPH on an e-bike, unless I was on a main road and there was little to no traff...

It looks very similar to what is already on the market, in terms of the standard and mini. The folding seat on the pro version is something I haven't seen.

Re: Konion cells in Makita are SAFER than many other 18650

They are still very dangerous and may attack at any time. However, you should note that pressing lithium batteries won't usually make them flame up. They are being destroyed quickly, and in a way that does not allow them to build up gasses and heat. If you were to press a metal object such as a nut ...
