All right, I don't see how this wouldn't work, but may as well pass it by you guys as a sanity check. I have one of the affected Cycle Satiator 72v chargers that needs to go back for warranty. So, in the mean time, I still want to ride my ebike with a 24s battery. I have a 58.8v 3a charger, and I may borrow a friend's 5a. So, why not hook up my 14s charger to a boost converter, and push it to 97v?
I'm considering this boost converter :

The input would be, at best, 58.8v and 5a : equates to ~300w . Figuring in the claimed 85% efficiency , that's 250w of output .
At 97v , that's 2.5a charging current for my 24s pack. That will only take twice as long as my usual 5a charge(13hr vs. 6.5hr), which I can afford.
There are two types of people in this world.
