There is simply no way a 72v 10 ah pack from electricrider is going to run a 40 amp controller without risking damage to the battery. So you'd have to carry more of it, and destroy the handling of the bike on the trickier parts of the trails. What works on street or riding dirt roads fails on tough singletrack.
Hey there Dogman!
My 38120HP 8ah red headways handle 4.5c constant and my A123 (once assembled 4p) handle 5-7c Constant.
1p of my headways is 36amps but if I run 2p 72amps
@ 3.0v steady (per cell in 2p)
my A123 in a 4p handle 5-7c 46-64amps @ 3.0v steady (per cell in 4P)
Even with my 9C 2810 I see peaks of 3 or 4kw, so on my 1kw pack that's a spike of 3 to 4c and nominal running between 500-2500 watts
0.5C and 2.5C
Build the pack for what you need it to do, and "SURE" if weight is an issue... go to the "Darkside" of RC LiCo
I haven't been there yet..... but I'm sure it's coming.... lol
No matter the chemistry, use caution and learn learn learn to be safe to you, others, property and investment.
