    Using a Currie battery with BBSHD

    I have a person who wants to buy my 29+ bike with a BBSHD. He has his own battery from an Izip, 48V 8ah. Yes, I'm trying to talk him out of it. However, I want to ask about it here. The battery was on a Izip Sumo with a 350 watt hub. It has a BMS connection to the dash board and has a 30 Amp fuse. I've called Currie and "tech support" doesn't have any specs like max continuous max current.

    What is you opinion - Would it be safe to run if I limit the BBSHD controller to 25 amps? Also, I'm assuming that I can just run the DP14 dash and ignore the battery's BMS connection?

    I don't think that's necessarily going to work, no. That iZip battery would only need to support 10A or so with a 350W motor. No guarantee it can do more.

    Limit the BBSHD to 10A, and that would be a better starting point.

    No idea if the BMS will cause troubles either.

    Fabrication is fun! Build something today. Show someone. Let them help. Inspire and share. Spread the desire.
