yea. I see it. Great deal. Thing is they already shipped out the LTOs.
I really do not want to return them but instead of buying a really expensive DC step up converter and really expensive 50 amp or more 15S charger for them I could order the pack you just posted.
I can also build the 56V LIFEPO4 pack which will run a 3 kilowatt motor. If I buy the 48V pack you posted and build the LIFEPO4 pack I still have the 13S - 7P Lion pack.
Everything above 36V I will have at least 70 maybe close to 100 miles range without the LTOs.
I can then run 15S LTO exclusively. Any of my bikes except 0ne can do 36V. That is the 3 kilowatt brushless motor.
15S - LTO = 25 pounds. About the same as the 22 Ah I ran for two years on the currie. I will just take off the 58V controller for the rear motor and the 15S LTOs can run the rear chain drive which is rated at 36V and 750W with the 36V Bafang up front.
I can also run the 1,800W brushless motor and the 20" Turbo with the 20" hub motor. I can run the front chain drive on the 20" dual suspension also and use my 13S - 7P pack for the 1,000W rear hub on the back.
The only bikes I don't want to run LTOs are the Giant Roam and the 26" DimondBack outlook when I build it so I can keep those bikes light.
The thing to do with the 9S LTOs left over. Well I could use those to jump start vehicles in the winter and make some $$$$$
OR. Look for a 24V motor. Maybe two. As 2.7 * 9 = 24.3V. 2.3 * 9 = 20.7V .
One or two. ??? The LTOS could easilly do two for 1,800W 35 mph gearing.
9S - LTOs are only 15.3 pounds. 10 pounds lighter than 15S LTOs and that way I don't have 9 LTOs just sitting around collecting dust.
Also I wont need to put one on the front and one on the back. I can run BOTH on the back and mount the LTOs up front. I know DA remembers my little experiment way back in 2014 I think where I ran dual 250W razor scooter motors on the front of a bike using one chain and wheel sprocket.
Lets find that.
It actually worked. I wish I could find the video I did back then. Page 74. It was 2015.
That sucks. Video was deactivated. It was hilarious. It fooled a lot of members but not DA.
I can do some cool stuff with windows movie maker and a program called MGI phot suite. I did a video where I jumped over a city bus with an e bike and looked real. That is probably deactivated also. Don't know why.
Any way I will be keeping the LTOs. I know 3 - 22 AH - SLAs were about 25 pounds or more so is nothing I have not delt with before. I can keep my heavy e bikes in the van now so can just carry the LTOs down in my back pack.
I will be building a 24V e bike , 35 mph capable with dual brush motors on the back to run with 9S - LTO. Not sure what e bike yet. It will be a beast for sure. That will be #8 or #9 e bike.
I am losing count.
Now that I will have all the batteries I will ever need I am a mad man.
Not sure what kind of brushless controllers they make if any at 24V but a 2,500W 48V brushless motor could be 1,200W @ 24V.
Good for a cargo bike with 25 mph gearing for hills.
I will see about those batteries. I got a lot going on this week. A lot of stuff will be coming I ordered and have other urgent issues non e bike related to deal with.
I build e bikes. There not always pretty or practical but sometimes they work, at least for awhile. Immortality is not a dream but the future of our evolution. We were given the tools to forge our own destiny. We were created in gods image and shall evolve to live forever.
