(1s-7s) 5 in 1 RC Li-Fe Lipo Battery Voltage Balancer Meter Discharger LCD display - ~$8

Unlike a very similar previous posting, this does have continuous metering.
IR meter function seems to work ... roughly, but should be used to compare like cells. (Same brand, capacity, model, charged voltage etc. ?)
Can't vouch for discharge or balance function.

Ideal for my 7s 25.9V 25.92Ah LiPo battery builds. Replaces 24V 10Ah (5-6Ah actual) oem SLA battery.
Will be mounted on my bars to monitor "fuel level" and bank voltages.
8 wire Ethernet cable adapts nicely.
Use multiple for more than 7s.

Testing battery drain (to operate continuously) with an old 3s 2000mAh RC LiPo.
Will post mAh use but should be negligible

Image

Index
...

UPDATE: 24+ hour run test showed "87% - 67%" discharge of 3s 1500mAh RC LiPo test pack. ~300mAh/day continuous run. 12mAh/hour
Most important was that discharge was even over the 3 cells.

Better selection - 5 in 1 Smart Battery Meter - ~$7

ok...i am not sure if these items are really bargains or not, but I am sort of digging these. I was looking for a fork mounted head light, and finally was able to find one which I could use. The head light is fairly cheap for $6 and works great. Both these lights claim to be compatible with volts ranging from 12v-80v, but I only tested it with 36v, and works great so far. The tail light isn't really cheap, but it doesn't seem to be a bad deal for $20. Only time will tell how it holds up over time. Will update again if I have any issues..

Head Light: http://www.ebay.com/itm/221641886624?_t ... EBIDX%3AIT
Tail Light: http://www.ebay.com/itm/321926749036?_t ... EBIDX%3AIT

The diameter of the light is around 5.8cm in diameter. The lens (or glass in this case) is 4 cm in diameter. It's almost the size as my old Lumotec IQ dynamo light (picture on the left), which I had to replace.

The LED light does not come with any fork mounting hardwares, but I had few spares in handy, so it wasn't an issue for me. I might replace this light eventually with another Lumotec ebike light, but those are not cheap by any means. This will do for now.

a phone charger project (-not even sure if this is the right thread for it). I'm not sure how practical it would be as you can add a usb outlet from your battery and it wouldn't be a massive load, but this would be less of a load! And cheaper than the $112 ( :shock: ) one it references on ebay.

Thanks. I've got led lights with very small (<1") reflectors and the beams aren't very well defined so I'm looking for something bigger, but not too massive.

Looking on these watt LCD meters on here I came across this one for only a few dollars more but claims to handle mother Russia level power of 200kw.. 400v 300A
Also has BMS features like cut off voltage or current limits..
So could be handy for those involved with heavy-duty EV projects. Something that can handle even close to 200kw of power for $32 is pretty good deal.

For those like me who salvage old laptop 18650 cells - Battery Capacity Meter Discharge Tester - £3.60 (can be found at around 3.50-5 USD)

Image


I was using hobby charger (Imax B6) to test all my cells, but this is very time consuming, so I bought 5 of these boards and assembled and ugly device for convenient discharging of 5 cells at a time. That effectively cut the needed time for testing by 10 :)

I've never had a rear wheel drive bike, my front Crystalyte 5300 normally peaks at 2KW and is fine, if I connect batteries in series rather than parallel it's 4KW which starts to get a bit scary. If I get to build a new bike it will be rear wheel drive though.

Innovative, after you get passed the heresy? of a left hand throttle ...
Looks to mount on a standard bike nicely.
Supplies handy turn signal capability
and
right handed rear shifting without throttle interference.
