Need tech help in Deerfield Beach, FL

Have a 36v 20ah lifepo and 5 amp charger. Added new xlr and quick disconnect plug to both ends all this to an ebike kit. I do have power to the front hub. So far have 25 miles on the clock. Put the charger on the batt but I can't tell if it's charging it. I need someone here in my area to check my s...

Re: Newbie & wife trike build in need of direction

Trike sits in Florida all year round but we are there Dec to April. I plan to take the battery with me when I get down in Dec and take it back in April. I also use it in my Schwinn scooter during the summer here in Montreal. It would be a waste to keep there for 8 months sitting idle even though we ...

Re: Newbie & wife trike build in need of direction

I am quite overwhelmed the amount of feedback. And a little confused which direction we should proceed. So many options. Which should we choose.

I also have a 36v 20ah lifepo I got as a gift. She needs to get to the stores 3-6 miles round trip. I'm look...

Re: SLA Batteries, the Peukert Effect on 24v 12Ah

I can't understand what's with all this SLA talk, with all the time and monies spent you could have a Lifepo by now. Do what I did, modify the battery compartment to fit the larger size, add a front disc brake. It will extend your range and reliability ten fold. Also buy a decent 5 amp charger. I us...

Re: Ezip 1000 mods

I have a Schwinn Stealth 1000, same as yours. I added a lifepo 36V 20ah in the same box below. I had to lower the battery box three inches to accommodate the added size. Added better discs and 5ah charger. She goes great, can run for 25 miles or 5 hrs on a charge. Best bang for the buck, check out s...

Re: Cheaper batteries than ping?

the original sun-thing charger is gone? did you take any pictures inside? do you have the 240V charger open and can you take pictures? i expect you will have to get more access to replace the jumper so if it is the kingpan you can take the end off too. where the power comes in. Here is the inside 5...

Re: Cheaper batteries than ping?

The sunthing charger is a 110v, we checked the fuse, it was ok and had power on to the ac line but didn't do the charge.
The evassemble is the 240v. I have them at the office. Will photo both and post the pics tomorrow. thx

those chargers always blow up the ICL within hours. if you open up that dead charger you will see it in the corner next to the fuse. i still have some for sale. bigger, better ones. 6.3A. if you still have the 240V charger, we can show you how to swap the jumper to make it 120V. I still have the 24...

Re: Cheaper batteries than ping?

I purchased from sun-thing a few months back in June, a 36v20ah for $350-. Delivered in 25 days with a dead charger which he gave me a rebate. So I ordered one from Evassemble but he screwed up too and sent me a 220v, useless here in NA. I complained and he then sent me a 110V and arrived in a few d...

Re: Which battery charger is worth buying?

I checked with my buds volt meter, the battery is good at 38 ?, the charger does work and reads 42v, but the charger plug from the battery has a short with no reading. I'll fix this first thing tomorrow. I ended up using a backup 3a charger, which took the better part of the day, about 8 hrs. Curren...

Re: Which battery charger is worth buying?

I believe in buying quality all within reason, so $115 is a fair price. How long does it take to complete a charge with this 16a model? Do you think I can get it stateside instead of across the pond?

Those fet's on a big heat shink. The shipping coast of a super cheap charger is the same as a good middle grade. Glad to hear you have a back up charger.Miuan that's a good find but with all the plug choices You would need to check + and - as not to plow the charger first plug in. Can't just trust ...

I have two leads from the battery which has a female sort of wall plug (not anderson). So I plugged in the old charger to the three pin plug socket.

Re: Sunthing 36v20ah arrived with pics

I don't have a voltage reader yet will try to get one today.
I'm currently using a 3a charger which I suspect will take at least 6-8 hours to charge.

Re: Sunthing 36v20ah arrived with pics

It lights up. There are two diodes, one red and one green. When plugged into dead battery it should read yellow and once charged it will turn green. But this does not happen, it stays green.

Sunthing 36v20ah arrived with pics

It was well packaged with lots of bubble wrap. So far so good holds a decent charge. But I suspect my charger has crapped out. Shipped to Canada, he wrote on customs label, bike parts and I didn't have to pay any GST or duties. http://i776.photobucket.com/albums/yy49/allroadstomtl/sunthing.jpg http:...

Which battery charger is worth buying?

I have a 36V 20A LiFePO4 setup from Sunthing and so far so good. The 5a battery charger crapped out on me and is not working (cheapo). I have a 3a but will take forever to charge. Need to buy a more reliable model but who makes one at a fair price.

Re: Lowest cost build bike for the money

I think he wants to spend about 750- but not much more. A range of 25-30 miles, mainly flat area, speed is not a major factor, also wants to be able to ride in the rain. From what we have seen, one can put together a bike at a fairly decent price, as there are deals out there and prices are coming d...

A friend of mine is looking for a low cost build ebike. Something in the range of under five hundred or less, is this possible?
