Explained Electric Bike Batteries – Three Important Things To Know
In the event that you are pondering building an electric bicycle you will clearly require a battery pack. Many individuals kick confounded when they off looking for electric bike batteries on the grounds that there are such a variety of various sorts and different particulars for every brand of battery. Ideally I can help clear up a portion of the riddle for you to settle on you choice less demanding.
The principal thing to consider is the thing that voltage battery pack you require. The top speed of your bicycle depends specifically on the voltage of the battery pack, the higher the voltage the quicker the bicycle. In the event that you need an engine just to help you while you pedal your bicycle continously you will presumably just need a 36 to 48 volt battery pack. Then again on the off chance that you need to utilize the bicycle more like a bike and voyage around at rapid without accelerating something in the 72 to 100 volt class would give much better execution. You likewise need to ensure your engine and controller are evaluated for the voltage of battery pack you are utilizing.
Next thing to consider is the battery limit which is to what extent a battery will keep going on a solitary charge. It is measured by what number of amp-hours (Ah) it can release before it is unfilled. On the off chance that a battery can release 1 amp ceaselessly for 1 hour it has a limit of 1 Ah. The more Ah of limit a battery has the bigger its physical size will be on the off chance that you are looking at similar sciences. A 10Ah battery will be double the extent of a 5Ah battery in the event that they are a similar sort and have the capacity to get your bicycle twice as far if riding at a similar speed. Various electric bike batteries can be associated in parallel (all the positive terminals associated together and all the negative terminals associated together) to expand the limit or Ah to your craved level.
Last thing to consider is “C” rating or release rate of the battery. The “C” rating of a battery is a number that speaks to the safe ceaseless release rate (in amps) of the cell. A battery evaluated at 1C can release its appraised Ah limit in current without harm. A 2C appraised battery can put out double the quantity of its Ah rating in amps. On the off chance that a 10Ah battery is evaluated at 1C, its most extreme safe release rate is 10 amps, if the same 10Ah battery has a rating of 3C, it can securely release 30 amps. In like manner if that 10Ah battery is appraised at .5C it can just put out 5 amps securely. Trust this clears up a portion of the riddle of what to search for when looking for electric bike batteries for your electric bicycle.
