new LiFePo batt

that looks a fantastic conversion! It appears rather a powerful piece of kit on board, is it more than 10AH? On my mini trek on my 10AH 36V bike I managed 35 mile round trip (with just a bit of peddling!) in just over 2 hours. it would be interesting to see what range you may have with your new batt...

The 10Ah 36V Li ion battery was a bit low on my return, but the journey was wonderful gliding a...

Re: Taking the LiFePO4 plunge

Re: Taking the LiFePO4 plunge

Well after much thought and investigation I'm going to go modern :shock: Thanks for sharing your experiences ChrisB. I was interested to see what Ping batteries look like and how professional they are, knowing some Chinese stuff is low on quality. I have a Li 10amp/hr battery on my e bike kit and i...

However the components looked undamaged. The aluminium hub front wheel containing the 250W motor seemed very impres...

Electric Gentry car

i can vouch for the Gentry being a lovely kitcar. When i was considering building a kit car in the early 80's, it was a toss up between a nostalgic old fashioned look or a futuristic one in the Midas. I chose Midas because of that and ease of finding its donor Mini bits.
