Hi you all,
My V is now at 64.200kms and the current pack has 42.000kms. And it shows...
The range is down to 30-50 kms, depending on the throtle usage.
I have access to Nimh cells and I thought that if you can shunt a dead cell and leave 101 working, why can't you place, let's say, 3 extra cells in the pack and bring the total to 105?
Has anyone tried it before? Is there enough space for them on top of the front row?
105*1.4v=147v, wich is what my charger asks the bike everyday.
But at the end of a charge, as soon as I disconnect the charger, the voltage drops to 141/142v and after a few meters is down to 138/139v.
Would the voltage hold better with 105 cells?
Wouldn't the 105 cells be safer both at high and low voltage limits?
Would the charger work OK?
My ride to work is 30 kms, and I have a big climb at the end of the return. In the climb the voltage drops easily to values under 120v under load, and I don't like to stress the pack each and everyday. But it happens.
This might be a cheap and easy fix. If it works.
Let the discussion begin!
