if you had a chance to fill this box what would you put in it? what type and what voltage etc would you use?

what type of charger would you buy for it?

vintagerider wrote:got the case yesterday lipo tommarow, lien 24 fet controller could be a while, hubzilla end of month i hope, just think i should be doing something, looking for some 30 mm clamps for forks as i will try to mount box on forks at first and if handling is too severe will go the way gensem went and glue braket to headset area.
if i get a premade harness i might not be able to fit it in box i guess i will need to cut my teeth on first build and make my own could use a little advice though
vintagerider wrote:got the zippy.s today wow what i tight fit
Any ideas on how to connect the case with the front tubes?
I'm hoping to make mine removable, to charge each night.
