Bluetooth dongle for ebike - BAFANG, Kunteng, KingMeter

Post by emilx » Apr 05 2017 3:17am

Hi All,
We are a young company based in the UK, and for the last couple of years we worked on an Bluetooth dongle compatible with most DIY ebikes.
We launched the campain on Kickstarter, and we are very happy to talk about it.

Like it :mrgreen: please add max amps and watts to logging if not already implemented, and finally parallel cell voltages , looks promising i hope you see this through after the kickstarter.

Looks great. Will buy one after its out. I dont know anything about kickstarter, do you lose your deposit if it doesnt reach funding?

Unfortunately that would involve communicating with the BMS, and few of them have any intelligence at all. Max current and power can be easily added

Nope, you're not charged until the funding is successful

Isn't there another one of these that's already out?

Not really, we have a number of samples, we used them for more than one year, but none is out there at the moment

i so misunderstood your question, lol
Yes, recently Kunteng released their version. Golden motor has had theirs for a couple of years at least. The functionality is really limited though in both cases.
We aim to use all that the protocol can provide each version of the controller.

No this one
app.lsdzs.com

Yours looks nicer but what else does it do, seems a bit wild to need a $10000 kickstarter for a dongle

Thanks for the info. We completely missed that one. That's Linshui, and it seems well made as well.
The reason we have such a high goal is that we need certain support for a mass production. Hand-assembling them has it's limitations.
Also, our app it's functional and everything, but before making it as perfect as possible we need to understand how much interest is there.

Looks nice. Will it be compatible with Cyclone drives?

What will the Final Cost to the Consumer be ?

Shipping costs to the U.S. ?


For me to get one it would have to have the following stats.

Total Amps used , at anytime during and after the ride .

Total Watt Hours used, at anytime during and after the ride.

and very important ... be able to sense any battery voltage, ( many e-bikes are now using 52-72 volt packs, and some people even more than 72 volts.

also a separate dongle made, one that senses the inside temperature of any motor . ( motor would have to be opened and sensor put inside, then wire outside to dongle which then communicates with the smart phone and will shut off system when a certain temperature is reached.
My first conversion ... Sold

It's 2018 already, ( now 2019 ) lets get some real , improved e-bike / e-velomobile / e-motorcycle designs .

I love the concept guys, I'm very excited about the possibilities.

Do you have any plans to work with ASI controllers / phaserunners?

The best offer I found is from http://www.speedict.com, they have more controls than others and if you have bms with communication they offer application to see what is happening inside your battery.

Hi guys.

Good idea!! In fact maybe I will do the same (but small and simple app) for Kunteng controllers and to talk with our OpenSource firmware -- our OpenSource firmware already has features that original firmwares does not, so we will need an app specific for our firmware, and sure, it will be developed as OpenSource, just like the firmware.

- TSDZ2 FAQ: issues and repairs, etc
- TSDZ2 OpenSource firmware

If you like my work, please consider making a donation. I am being using the donations to buy needed resources for my developments. My paypal: casainho AT gmail.com.

Let’s get some tech info; how exactly are you going to achieve making this device “compatible with most DIY”?

Is it RS232, RS485? CAN? What’s the Bluetooth module, just a HC-05? How are you going to work with iPhone iOS compatibility?
