I've realized, a bit late ( 48v 1000w hub, kit on order) that the proper battery (48v battery 20ah) is a little out of my reach right now...($450 shipped to my door, no additional fee's).
But I read a tip on here, that I could possibly downgrade my controller to a 20a one start with, and run a more attainable 48v /12 or 15ah battery.
Saving my other controller for a future upgrade. Any serious trade off's to doing this?
