Has anyone given thought to whether Rad Power Bike batteries could be functional on an X4?
I’ve looked at ebike batteries. Generally they come in a heavy case which would be awkward and unnecessary for ePPG. Typically the are 500-700Wh which means you’d need at least six of them in parallel. You might need at least 8 in parallel to get enough amps - 250-280 continuous. At over 7lbs and $500 per battery that’s about 60lbs and $3200 ($4800 CAD) for your pack. Bonkas are cheaper, lighter, and more powerful.
As yet I have not seen a LiFe pack on the market that would fit the x4 well. A custom built one seems the only way for now.
5-7 times the energy of a Tesla model S battery and only 7lbs. Sounds like the tech of the future!
I have not seen an E-ppg powered off LiFe batteries within the past 8 years. Their gravimetric energy density is really low and they sag under high current.
aackkk! I meant 500-700 Watt Hours not kWhs! Edited. Thank you!
Li-Ion. Still…getting the power and energy density is a challenge for ePPG.
No worries, I have made MUCH bigger mistakes on this forum as many people here can attest too.
Thank you for all that insight!
My next questions… having just got my 4X bonkos (7s series) is to what the best charger is for them?
