    is it doable

    Greetings
    I pose a question for the pro's
    I have a entry level set up
    52v 24 ah battery
    sine wave controller set to 50 amps
    and a edge 1500 watt DD pushed to 2600w
    do you think that I could run two of these batteries together to up my voltage
    would my CA work with that much voltage
    and get a new controller to handle it
    This is the controller I am thinking about https://electricrt.com/blogs/news/sa...ller-tech-info
    what say you
    thankx in advance

    GW, long time no chat!! I think the dude you want to talk to would be EBike 1, he has a similar voltage on a much bigger rear hub. I'd give him a shout to see what he says. Seems to me as long as you have the controller and your Edge can take that kind of voltage it shouldn't be a problem, but I'm no expert so take what I suggest with a grain of salt. Ride on safely my friend, Dale

      Dale ma Man what up dude
      I am hoping that EB1 can tighten me up
      WTF happened to fwb and will ride those guys just disappeared
      I thought that I read some where that they fell in love on the forum and have run off together
      to SF to open up a ebike shop
      Cheers my Brother
      Billy.

        HAHAHA, ain't love grand lol. But seriously fwb now works for Luna, and will is probably out riding somewhere. Yeah EB1 is the real deal for sure, I believe he will be able to help ya out. Good luck on the upgrade and keep us posted of progress. Dale out.

          The fully charged voltage of a 96V battery is about 111.9V, so be aware that hot off the charger you may be sending up to 111.9V X 50A = 5595W to your 1500W motor which would heat up the motor quickly. In practice, you would have to limit the current so that your motor doesn't overheat. I have 50mm magnet motor and heat issues present themselves at about 50 continuous Amps at 72V (3600W). A 50mm magnet motor is rated at 3000W continuous, 6000W peak: http://www.qs-motor.com/product/1000...rop-out-150mm/.

          My CA V3 has seen up to 115.6A with no problems.

          I have found that overbuilding a system (motor/controller/cells/BMS) works well in order to stave off heat issues. For example, one could use a 50mm magnet motor, 24 FET controller, 3400mAh high drain cells with a 100-150A BMS and then limit the current so as to run the system under 3000W. This setup would not strain or overheat any component. I call this "sending a man to do a boy's job".

            More sound advice from one who has been there!!! Commuter Ebikes has some seriously sweet rides, and some good vids on Youtube, under Industial Ebikes. I like the idea of overbuilding if you can afford it, then no worries about your equipment failing.

              I'm sorry I missed this post some how .
              If you run 2 battery's in series then you would need to have the proper BMS because the volts rise when in cells are in series

                I have two 36V LiMn 18650 batteries in series and, although I never draw over 30A continuous, I use a 100A BMS on each 36V battery.

                When I had this setup and used a 50A BMS on each 36V battery, 75% of the BMS units burned. Back then, though, I did not limit my current so it was more like 45A continuous with 1 to 2 second bursts of about 82A.
