Bought a Bosch Fat Pack BAT836 Battery Set
I replaced my Vpower.HK batteries with a set of Bosch Fat Pack 36V BAT836 6.6Ah batteries. They are much smaller and significantly lighter than the Vpower.HK LiFePO4 batteries. They can handle huge amperage outputs and are self balancing so no BMS is necessary. Simpler is always better.
Included with the packs are 2 Tenergy chargers so I don't have to lug them to and from the office.
The best part of all this is that I can wire the packs up to be 72V 6.6AH which should really speed up my commute to work!
