    Ryobi 18V lithium battery pinout?

    Thread resurrection! I'm trying to replace my dead ryobi nicd cells with a lipo pack (5s, 2.2ah) and am wondering if there'sany chance of getting my lithium charger to charge it. Anyone know what these two centre contacts actually do? Any way to know if the charger will bulk charge the pack...

    Anyone has Bafang BPM 500w motor with 29' wheels?

    Could I ask where you bought the CST? And did it come laced I the 29er rim? I'm trying to find somewhere that sells them laced. Cheers

    Thanks anyway, I'll have to hunt around. Fabulous work. One more question, is that heatshrunk section near your derailleur your controller? It's tiny!

    Help please! Horrible rasping sound from 9c

    I think you just found my problem! I didn't realise the bearings were meant to be such a tight fit to the covers. I popped the cover using the old 'bang the axle on a block of wood' pages trick, the cover popped, the bearing stayed put. I guess that the bearing was jamming as it warmed up, and...

    Help please! Horrible rasping sound from 9c

    Bearing spin fine, no grating or crunching, in fact the motor works great until it warms up, and even then it works fine in low torque situations. I'm totally stumped, and I don't mind admitting, but it certainly seems like the stator is rubbing on the magnets. The fact that it's the edges of...

    Help please! Horrible rasping sound from 9c

    Right guys, I I fiddled with phase connections to no avail. Went for a lovely ride round the block, 6mins in and brraaaaaaaap. It really does sound like metal slipping against metal. So I opened the motor and found this: Looks like the stator and rotor are rubbing! There are similar marks on...

    Help please! Horrible rasping sound from 9c

    Thanks guys! Greatly appreciate the help. I've checked for wheel rub etc. but found nothing, wheel runs fine off the ground (and indeed for the first 5-10mins of a ride), and I only get the grinding vibration under large loads. Will inspect phase connections and report back. Cheers! Alex

    Google says it spends 0.0003 kWh of energy on a search query

    That's a lot of energy! Given how many searches are carried out these days, google must be burning through a huge amount of juice!

    Why such low power? 60v Lipo

    10amps is pitiful. If its not a bad hall/phase combo, I'd defo suspect that.

    The Best of All Ways to Lengthen our Days...

    I LOVE night riding! My trike has these lights in the spokes of the front wheels, so at speed I look like something out of Tron! Nice and quiet, no one in my way...awesome. Just last night I was out doing doughnuts on the local park. Great fun. Got home and promptly vaporised a balanc connector...

    Tablet advice - iPad or Android?

    I'm using an ipad (mk1) to post this, I've had since the beginning (more or less). While the ipad is a nice piece of kit, I would never buy another. Mainly due to itunes, which is the biggest PITA piece of software I have ever used. Gonna get me a nexus 7 shortly, and ditch this piece of crap.

    It may be some use on inclines, useless as a parking brake though.

    Was reading this with interest until I did the maths and realised that 20F is -6C! Thats a mild winter for you guys? Jeeesus, the last two winters have been colder than for the last decade and they just touched -8C! The whole country ground to a halt! Thinking electric clothing might not be...
