Re: LIFEPO4 from Ebikes.ca

Hi Olivier...I'm just approaching the 1000 mile mark on my 36V 12Ah Lifpo4 pack from ebikes.ca, and I've been following your thread with interest, noting the possibility that my pack could become unbalanced. However, after 37 cycles (most of them shallow), my fresh-off-the-charger is holding well at...
