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!

  1. Hello,
    I was wondering if you have a wiring diagram, or if you know of somewhere to get one for these battery packs. From What I see you just used a pos and neg wire on the respective terminals. It can't be as easy as running it that way, can it? I'm actually looking at the 14.4X3 for ~42 to get a little extra from my 36V motor.
