Using a 750Watt Wheel with a 48Volt Battery
« on: February 18, 2015, 11:22:17 PM »


I have an original 750 Watt (36V) front pie. (Non-magic)

I was using Lead Acid batteries  but the weight is nuts.

I have a spare 48V LiFePO4 battery pack.
(I will need to get a second charger.)

Can I use the 36V external BAC controller with the 48V battery?

Should I get the 48V BAC and somehow limit it with software?

Thanks.

By default, the MagicPie or external cruise controller accepts versatile voltages from 24V to 60V. Programming a voltage is useful for low voltage cut-off to protect low battery.

Elmer, the 36V external BAC controller should work fine with the 48V battery.
