Hey everyone, I was just shopping around for Electric Bicycle conversion kits. What this is an electric wheel motor that you use to replace an existing wheel on your bicycle to convert your bicycle to an electric bike. The one issue that I’m finding is that most of these kits do not come with the battery pack.
Here’s an image of an example kit…
They have kits for 24v, 36v, and 48v kits which would require a compatible battery of about 15 -20Ah. The higher the Voltage the faster they go essentially.
Looking online for these batteries is a real struggle. There are some out there and they are expensive. This is most of the cost of the conversion. Usually the kits range from $180 USD to &350 USD. Without the battery. The batteries cost about $400 USD.
Here’s a couple of examples of these batteries…
My problem is I don’t trust these off brand batteries, I don’t trust the batteries they use, the quality of the connections, circuit safety, etc. and would like to request that Anker thinks about making these. These kits are starting to become more popular and I would love to see Anker make this product.
Who is with me! Comments, concerns? Let’s talk about it.
