Re: Is Jimmywu66 & EastUnitedMusic the same person?

Note: After a flurry of high ticket batteries in the course of a few days, jimmywuu66 is now down to two batteries for sale on ebay, both expiring within a few hours. I'm guessing that I know what that means. "peterwong228" contacted me on ebay a few days ago to say he had sent a charger and two rep...

Re: Is Jimmywu66 & EastUnitedMusic the same person?

I'd like to order a "eastunitedmusic/jimmywuu66/peterwong228" dartboard with the following printed sections: "Your battery is being built. What dimensions do you need?" "Your batttery will be sent in two weeks." "Your battery will be sent in one week." "Your battery will be sent in two days." "Your ...

Re: Is Jimmywu66 & EastUnitedMusic the same person?

I guess I shouldn't read too much into this, but on Saturday I wrote the last five purchasers to leave feedback for jimmywuu66's battery packs...not other items or single cells. Five is the limit. Ebay won't let you inquire from more than that in one day. Well, no one who left him a positive feedbac...

Re: anyone ever convert a downhill mountain bike to electric?

I've found that confusing, also. I think you just go to the Img button above, and it lets you browse, then, for a picture. I think, from there, you select the picture, and go to your edit menu, copy it, and enter it on this little box you're typing in. I think it you'll be inserting it between "(img...

Re: home style breaker for ebike use

You guys are brilliant. I spent hours in stores, automotive shops, and searching on google, and I was no further ahead...

Now, I really know some great options!

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Re: home style breaker for ebike use

This is the cheapest imaginable controller, Chinese, and the only information I have on it is 48v., 500w, and low voltage cut-out at 41v.

I'll check out the wilderness energy stuff. Thanks.

home style breaker for ebike use

I have a 500w hub motor and 48v sla batteries, and I thought a good way to combine switching and controller protection would be to use a panel style breaker between the batteries and controller... So, I put in a 15 amp breaker, and it seems to blow randomly at less than high throttle loads... I'll j...

Re: Is Jimmywu66 & EastUnitedMusic the same person?

I just saw a post from ypedal showing lifepo4s he got from a legitimate supplier. Really, the price of doing business with a legitimate seller is very little more than buying from a less reputable place. I noticed that one of the subjects of this thread has really stepped up listings of lifepo4s, an...

Re: Is Jimmywu66 & EastUnitedMusic the same person?

gbw, I screwed up. When I left my feedback, I made an error and actually clicked on positive. I felt like such an idiot. In the follow up comments I explained that I meant to leave a negative. I don't tend to leave negative feedback, and even just left no feedback for a jeweller who didn't even send...

Re: Is Jimmywu66 & EastUnitedMusic the same person?

...which reminds me... some of the packing material from jimmywuu66 says "Vacuum tube amplifiers". You wouldn't know, by chance what suspended seller eastunitedmusic used to sell besides lifepo4s, would you?

Hey! I accidently posted in the cheap lifepo4 section after reading your post, and honest to goodness, I've got another one! peterwong228 is jimmywuu66 I guarantee it. I have the two customs declarations side-by-side. I had a charger blow up the first time I used it on the peterwong228 battery. Your...

Smell a scam? Not being a quick learner, I got a 24v battery on ebay recently. When I plugged it in to charge...poof, charger exploded, and oil blew out of the charger housing. I know, chinese quality control, but it gets better. I tried a new seller, "peterwong228" 100% positive feedback, feedback...

Re: Cheap LiFePo4 on ebay

Leamcorp, Honestly, I think your having sent jimmywuu66 a link to this discussion really helped, because yesterday he wrote giving me his address and promising to replace the batteries. If this is why, then I owe you a major thanks! Prior to that I found that company's communications to be unusual. ...

I bought the batteries on a best offer, and clearly quoted on the offer that it was inclusive of shipping. Jimmywuu66, predictably accepted the offer and added shipping anyway. The ...

Re: 2WD winter bike with studded tires...

I think it's a great idea, whether you use peddles or motored rear! If you get ice and snow in the winter, I think studs on the front, at least, are worthwhile.

Let us know what you come up with.

Re: anyone ever convert a downhill mountain bike to electric?

I intend to convert a Giant DH to electric, but not just because it's a big robust bike, but because I want to take advantage of the through hub on that fork. I really think that a front hub motor will work with that design. The problem in my mind is to go from what I think, offhand, is a 30mm cylin...
