I know this site is mainly for pc tech, but I am in need an ear to vent.

So I am a cyclist, I ride on average of 10000 a year but I am not a young man anymore.

Years of riding have taking their toll on my knees (insert joke here).  So being the tech addict that I am I decided to order a DIY ebike.

I spent a week or so researching different kits and batteries and went with a 48v 1000w 26'' kits from asom for $219 and 4x 12v 10ah lead acid  for $80. 

My package was deliverd yesterday and upon opening this is what I got.

I thought cycling was good for your knees; it exercises them. I figured it was better than running because it doesn't have the shock of each step.  Interesting.

No reason for me to ride then LOL!  

 

Can you use a multimeter to figure out the charger?  3 pins usually will give you hot, neutral and ground. If so hot to ground will give you the answer.

because I'm not familiar with LiPo batteries if anyone has any experience with them your knowledge would be appreciated
