a safe place to buy lipo4

Recommended Posts

so i have posted that i built an Ebike and i am happy thus far.

well i wouldn't be a member of this forum if i was the kinda person who stays happy with his tech for long .

 

My to total investment is around $410 this includes  new bike , 48v 1000w diy kit , 4 sla 12v 9ah batteries. but now i realize there is so much room for improvement.  

 

i have tried finding a lighter more powerful battery pack but there are so many sites and i ve never heard of any of them plus i know nothing about lipo4 and i am affraid of being ripped off.

 

it needs to be 48v and at least 12ah

Good quality lead acid batteries (Yuasa for example) are cheap and reliable so why not stick with them?

 

I found this article which is a good read. Looks like Li-Pol may be the way to go?

 

If you lived in the UK I could recommend a couple of good quality battery suppliers but not much help in the US I'm afraid.

Ping batteries very trusted source

I'd stay away from lipo like the plauge! Go to endlesssphere and research. Lipo needs lots of research unless you want to catch on fire. Lots of balancing and other crap to deal with.

 

Ping will be good for lower amps. But if you need the amps and have a 2000watt+
