I agree with the notion of multiple packs in parallel as opposed to one massive unified battery. If a cell/pack goes bad it can be removed from the system and you keep going. It doesn't take out the entire battery.sonnetg wrote: ↑Jun 06 2018 12:46pmYou could use ms paint or any other image software to resize the image.
As for capacity, why would anyone need over 40Ah on a bicycle..beats me. I usually carry multiple smaller 14Ah/36v packs in my panneer if I am on a long trip and such. I normally dont need more than 10Ah, so I dont have any reason to lug around additional weight every trip. If for any reason you need more than 40Ah, you can hook them up them up in parallel or carry an additional pack with you.
Thanks. I love folders I sometimes have to commute in DC and having a folder is life saving, because I have to hop on bus and trains. My commute rarely exceeds 10 miles, so i dont have to worry about range. But when I plan to tour, i need all the range i can get. I also use a backpack to carry my laptop, chargers, food, clothing, etc. The weight quickly adds up. I need to source a better rack for my folder, but it seems hard to find. For now, I am using the rickety stock rack which came with my fBike folder.Bg-electric-cycle wrote: ↑Jun 07 2018 8:48am
Sonnetg, beautiful folder very new and shiny like it
Reference to the weight issue I travel with a small day pack on my back. Place to keep the 5amp charger, chain, rain proof coat, etc.
Touring? I visit frequent Bulgaria, and set a task to visit every nearby village. Are dirt tracks everywhere and reasonable good roads with plenty of villages and interconnecting roads. Have yet to find a problem charging every cafe stop not yet one refusal. 5amp charger soon 8 amps.
The present 35 Ah battery was rebuilt twice was original pre 20Ah. The MH1s are not true high current batteries although I’m very pleased with their performance as a 35AH pack.
You might look at my DayGlo Avenger and CrazyBike2 threads, for the pics that show the cargo boxes mounted either side of the rear wheel. Sorry I don't know which page specific pics are on.
As long as they are all connected in parallel, several smaller batteries can be teh same as one big one. If you run them separately, swithcing between them, then it's harder on each smaller one than one big one.On breaking down the battery how efficient is that running smaller batteries as opposed to one big one.
