Batteries

Posted by admin, October 2nd, 2012

I chose the new technology for our batteries. The lithium LiFEPO4 batteries. I have found a reputable source from China: http://www.pingbattery.com/servlet/StoreFront

The batteries have many advantages over lead acid or car batteries. They are a much safer chemistry, take up less than half the space and weight for the energy stored. They can be recharged over 2500 times with little degradation.

    Hi

    Which batteries did you buy and how much time are you getting under normal use on those batteries with this motor?

    Thanks
    Ian

    Ping Batteries. Very expensive but some of the best batteries you can buy for this application. I get about 2 hours of moderate to rough driving conditions. I rarely have driven that long.
