    13.5 aH Shark...17,700maH?

    I have a 13.5 aH shark battery (52v) that shows up with 17,700 maH as rated capacity. What am I missing in the math? I though it would be around 13500. I don't have a screenshot of my BMS handy, I can get it on the ride home this afternoon.



    Aha, now I think I have it. Having killed my battery today commuting to work and back. My "empty" reads 5826 mAH and 45.4V.

    Capacity-nominal~=working capacity (give or take). wish I had more phone juice so I could watch my BMS instead of the not so helpful Bafang power meter. "3 bars...ooops, sorry." Time to go to PAS 0 and pedal this 43 lb pig home. I'm glad I kept it light. I wouldn't want to haul home an 80 lb beast. There's this climb at the end of my ride...

    At least now I have my working ranges staked out for BMS observation. I guess I tried to milk too much out of my battery. I have a 44 mi RT, with 2k of vertical and I push for speed pretty hard. I need to either economize better or get a charger for the office.


      LOL, it is worth the 2.5 extra pounds to bring your charger with you! Click image for larger version

        So you were able to get over 40 mi from your 48V 13.5 Ah battery?


          Realistically, no, though I'm pushing at pas level 8-9 75% of the time. I'm at about 38 miles on my commute. Yes I'll be bringing my charger and eventually putting a spare at work


            For your first post, here's a screenshot of my 35E cell, 14-series, 5-parallel, 52 volt, 17AH rated battery for comparison:
