Re: new eZip motor

I am still wondering about what is the best meter for internal resistance. I always love it when someone asks about the "best" of something because one persons "best" isn't another persons "best" and my guess is $3800 isnt Curtis' "best" https://www.fluke.com...

Re: new eZip motor

How far do you want to go on one charge? How much time do you want to wait to guerilla charge your battery? There are some nice chargers out there that can pump lots of juice into batteries from a standard wall outlet. We're talking 43 ~ 55V at 21A sipping on 12A out of the outlet. Thats 1150W and i...

Re: Gas "Generator" <pumping> Electric fast "Charger" via electric bike

I like the Satiator a lot, but if I was to buy another charger and for guerilla charing, it would be the Meanwell 1500W thats right on the limit of a wall outlet (15A) but spits out like 0 ~ 32A at up to 43 ~ 56V which is 1800W so in an hour relaxing on a coffee shop patio could reach 70km range.

Re: Best place to buy replacement battery ? Acer 7741z

You's got to be careful these days, a non genuine battery could cause harm to your laptop just like a non genuine charger causes harm to laptops. Louis Rossmann vlogs about it all the time, but if your laptop is unimportant and cheap then who really cares right. Easily replaced info from your hd's. ...

Re: Best place to buy replacement battery ? Acer 7741z

Re: chainring and buzz bars advise

BCD is the biggest thing, where the chain ring bolts onto the crank. Next is if you go to big a chain ring you might hit the frame. I find having 1x7 gears is plenty for cruising around with the occasional steep hill, the biggest thing is having enough power and helping out the best you can with a 2...

Save your money and spend more time reading up on the difference between motors, pro's and con's to each hub motor, geared vs direct drive, play around with the tools to figure out your riding terrain and what specs to buy. Change power ratings. Ebikeling is is decent, I never bought them but others...

Re: Show Us Your Homemade Battery Housing

That's a great ingenious idea! Just curious: What's that IEC plug there in the 4th photo? 99t4 - Perhaps for a charger. ccihon - If so, is the charger stored in the housing when you ride around for guerilla charging? End sockets come in various shapes. Grintech's Satiator is IEC C14 on the Satiator...

Your taking a big risk buying that bike unless someone has personal experience, aliexpress is a gamble with some sellers as that platform is favored in the sellers favor unlike ebay.

Yeah, its better to have a spare throttle then wait around for a month to get one.
