I'm new to the forum so I apoligise if this post is in the wrong place.
My question is, if I buy a EV (Scooter/Motorbike) and replace the batteries with better ones of the same voltage but higher ah, is their any downside to this?
I'm looking to purchase a http://www.xinlingworld.com/showroom.asp?docref=search&search=Electric (Xinling 800w Electric Scooter).
These use 4x 12v 20ah silicon (lifesaver) batteries. I would like to replace these with http://www.maplin.co.uk/12v-sealed-lead-acid-deep-cycle-solar-batteries-265437 (Deep Cycle batteries marketed as "solar", sold by Maplin at 12v various amps).
I'm looking to replace the stock batteries with 6 12v 100amp batteries (or smaller) in order to increase range. I'm not looking to increase speed or any other factor, just range.
Any advice is welcomed.
