Im happy that for my own use I would only ever use the connections to monitor the battery states, and so the smaller cable and small socket route should be best for me. With regard to high DC voltages, unless you get a short across the whole pack the voltage is only going to be between cells. Or a ...

I had not realised the varity of connectors available in waterproof D format, a quick internet search (so there are probably better sources) turned up http://www.in2connect.uk.com/c2/uploads/ip67_20d2.pdf which had all sorts of stuff, including high power connectors which we don't need here of cours...

Good plan, and one I might follow when I do some battery checks next. Have you found any sensible waterproof terminals to use for this? The thought of having high voltage chocablocks or similar dangling around is a bit scary :) One thing I have done and will do in future is when ever removing batter...

Thanks Tim. I have clarified my post above to make clear that my light doesn't come on at 70%, however if it shouldn't come on even pedal down hard at 60% I do indeed have something going on. I will do a pack voltage test (not just yet as I'm just about to go away on hols) and post the results separ...

Any progress?

Has anyone a solution for this? I am finding that with the steep hills around here a moments carelessness can easily let it get out of the green and, if the charge is less than 70%, trip it into eco light situation. It really would be handy to switch in a green sector/100amp limit at times. Edit- to...

Are you sure on EPACs?

Hi Duxuk, My understanding of electric bikes is that as well as the 250W limit (continuous that is, they all exceed that short term) the maximum speed they can legally provide assistance to is 15mph and that assistance has to be progressively ramped down from something like 12mph onwards. Possibly t...

Hi Wade, I think you might have problems on both the charging and discharging fronts. When charging the batteries in parallel I think it unlikely you can ever achieve a satisfactory state of charge on both sets of batteries. Either the small ones will be overcharged or the bigger ones will be incomp...

Thats right at high speed you just get all the regen it has to offer . Even at quite low speeds, anything above about 10mph it seems. I think the manual quotes it somewhere but I don't have that in front of me, what was new (to me at least) was that even below the minimum regen speed regen is still...
