My situation: last year, August, I bought a Voilamart 1500 watt rear hub conversion kit. I have two 48 - 52 V batteries on a bike pannier rack, long story behind that one, suffice it to say it got me to/from on a 25 mile commute. In December, weird things started: the throttle battery power indicator would drain from full charge to empty in less than five miles, at which point I'd stop, connect the 2nd battery and go another 5. When I'd get home, the batteries would fully recharge in 2 hours. This alone tells me the LED battery on the throttle is inaccurate. So: I have tried new (three of the Voilamart ) controllers, 3 new throttles, and nothing works now. When the controller connected to the battery the bike won't start . Is there a way you'd recommend where I could take the controller off the bike and test it with a multimeter? The batteries test fully charged, and I am getting to the point where I throw the Voilamart components out and buy new conversion kit. Your input here would be greatly appreciated!
