I was not able to find info about your bike

but you want Deep Cycle battery's
and the higher the Amp hour the more distance you can cover

there are a few choices of battery makes out there
but the one to say away from is "POWERSONIC" there crap
I was going thought a set of 4 ever 3.5 months but they were the
one I could afford to buy with that money I had at the time

Re: ecoped

also the motor is rated at 48 volts it is a brushless hub, can i do anything with it

there is an item I am getting the converts 1 - 12 volt to 48 volts
and using the highest Deep Cycle battery battery you can find
will give you more driving distance

www.deepcycle.com

it's priced under $200

anther devices you want is called "12v Infintum Battery Desulfator"
it seams the battery when used make a substance that builds up in the battery
making them less able to recharge over time

www.infinitumstore.com

that's the one I am going to buy
on there web site more
info about the problem is talked about

there is a higher watt motor out there
but if it put on the bike and the cops catch ya they
can impound the bike

but all the rest are legal to do

the high amp hour battery and the charger for it will cost
you close to what a complected set for your bike will do
but your distance go's up and if you get bike trailer
then you can carry a second battery and more distance
is an option

For those not familiar with the ecoped ode, http://ecoped.com/ode_2011.html
To convert to 72V, start by looking at the existing pack, which brand and capacity batteries are there now? If they are old, go ahead and spring for 6 new batteries, all of the same capacity. This will gaurantee a balanced pack, but you willl need a 72v charger too. Can the controller handle it without vaporizing? You may need a new controller. Same goes for the hub motor. If the wiring is the typical e-bike stuff, count on needing to fully upgrade the wiring to prevent meltdown. There's also the question of the lights, if it uses a DC to DC convertor, can it take the 72V ugrade. If its straight bulbs with no converter, you will have to change this for sure. Legality of all this is a touchy subject. Make sure all these upgrades dont put you over the limits, or it REALLY gets expensive. Chances are, all that power will put you in a different classification of vehicle, requiring a license and insurance, and tag, possibly different equipment regulations as well. Best of luck. :-)
