The NiMH battery on my WE kit is getting a bit old and I am thinking of replacing it. At the same time I thought I would reconsider the battery bag it is sitting in. I have never been a fan of bags. I'm certain the battery would fry should I ever get caught in a down poor. Plus bags tend to work themselves loose over time especially on the bumpy, ice-rutted roads I've been riding on recently. (You know it's been a brutal winter when you see the thermometer reading 16F in the morning and you think, "Goody! I can leave my warm clothes at home today!)
I've tried Bionx with the plastic enclosure and I love it (although as anyone ever proved it's water tolerance?) I don't want to go that route on this bike mostly because I'd like to keep this bike with a front-hub motor. Plus I already own a perfectly good motor.
I tried building a wood enclosure. It was cool, but heavy.
Can anyone recommend some over-the-counter alternatives? Hopefully one that is either integral with a battery pack or easily adaptable to a standard brick-o-cells. I'm looking mostly for water resistance and a solid attachment to the bike.
