More magnets is supposed to yield a quicker response (less lag).
I've never noticed much difference w/ different counts.
The only lag I'm seeing is when I stop pedaling. The motor continues to run of a bit.

"The more magnets on the magnet ring, the less crank rotation is needed for the system to detect the pedaling and supply power."

Re: BMS terminal clarification

i already told you that if there is no C- spot on the BMS and it has no charging mosfet then you connect the charger negative to P- on the pcb. the red wire is the most positive sense wire and the black wire is the most negative sense wire. what else can i say? Ok I understand to use the P- for the...

Re: BMS terminal clarification

i explained how to wire it and there is a schematic in plain view. they use a red wire for the top and black for the bottom. if your BMS does not have a separate C- charging port then connect the charger negative to P- on the BMS. but only if there is no charging mosfet. Sorry I don't see a schemat...

Re: BMS terminal clarification

that schematic shows how to connect the sense wires. you do not have to bring the B+ lead over to the BMS using a large cable. instead you can use a small wire like the sense wires to connect B+ to the B+ spot on that BMS. then connect the controller P+ directly to the battery at B+ with the large ...

I need to swap out a bms because of bad fets. The new Bms has terminals marked the same as the old. The B- "negative battery". P- "negative battery output" and the white sence terminal locations I understand. The ones on the end marked B+ B+ P+ P+ I don't know what goes there. Th...

Re: BMS Help

I can easily unplug the bms, but I will monitor it more closely next winter. I took it out for a good run with no issues.

Re: Homemade battery cases

My 36v 20ah battery fits the 50 cal. ammo case very well. I use it for charging only. I think you could mount it to a bike with some added padding around the battery.. I have a dedicated battery box mounted to my columbia trike. I also was concerned with puncturing the shrink wrap on the battery, so...
