I have seen one 600w, I believe it's called add-e, that fits very neat with BB mount and weights only 2Kg including the bottle battery. One could easily build something similar, with better power or lesser weight.


A very interesting alternative. :idea:
Thank you.
The price seems to be just over a thousand dollars (250 watt version).
I would question the ease of building something similar without access to a good machine shop.
