Has anyone found a dealer that flat out states they have an ebike battery made from Panasonic, Samsung, LG cells... with quality connections, and the price is not in outer space? I'd like to buy a 48V battery around 15-20AH... it's brutal out there trying to find quality without 3x cost.
A package deal with a good charger would probably be too much to ask, but hoping someone has found a fair deal out there and is willing to share a 'good vendor' reference
Batteryhookup.com. average $.50~1.50 per 18650... 21650... a bit more for 26650 & 27650s. Also, flat packs, prismatics, & Headways(insert Tim Allen big-block engine sound!)
I just moved from Oregon to W.Va. & my Reention 48v is still out there.. 2 weeks ago I got 2 52cell 13s 4p 18650 packs for $25 each.
No bms, but it's wired for one (which I don't have yet) I used a 36in. length of high capacity 12Guage multi-strand I stripped out of a dead power tool, a Reention-to-bike connector from a spare battery pack (dead), 2 10guage washer-like connectors - soldered solidly, shrink wrap of course.. And an XP60 pair of connectors so I can connect the Reention plug to the bike- then connect the battery to the cable.
Worked like a charm!
I wouldn't want to cycle the pack too many times before balancing... But... $25!!
It doesn't fit in the down tube... That's why I have a rear rack & a box.
Next week, 2 more are coming with a 13s 30A bms ($25) Total shipped - $88.
These packs were for some medical equipment, but weren't used... sitting in a warehouse for 2yrs. Regulations wouldn't let them be used after that... The pack had 51v when I got it.
The 2nd pack I took apart, I've discharged/ recharged each cell & resistance was in mid mΩ50's!
