I've got an old 36V 500W ebike and I also have a bunch (68) of 2.3Ah 1.5 V LiPo cells. I'm wondering if i can hook these up to give myself a nice battery pack (yes I know I'll need a special LiPo charger).
Anybody do the math on that? I figure I need 24 of these to get the right voltage but does the Ah rating accumulate like that or am I going to end up with a 36V, 2.3Ah battery? Hook them up in parallel???? Say, two 36V battery packs giving me 4.6Ah?
Doing the math it looks like I need 14Ah to run at 500W.
