I've gone through motor controllers mainly. My latest one has lasted the longest so far. Partly because my battery is becoming marginal and I have to ride gently now. 80km commute in all 100kmh zones, when range is only 80km at 80 to 90kmh.
2007 Vectrix, modified with 42 x Thundersky 60Ah
Vectrix 60Ah Lithium Tyres Fuel Registration Insurance cycle analyst 2 x TC Charger & MC
Mine has just clicked over 130k Klms currently using Nissan Leaf batteries and doing a 65 Klm round trip to work each day in Adelaide south Australia
90.000 Km. Recently upgraded to 16,7 kwh
I just reached 100'000 miles / 160'000km
still same set of Thundersky 60Ah cells
How have the batteries held up as far as power and range is concerned?
Weakest cells are 2009 manufacture date, with 37Ah of capacity remaining. Power seems to have stayed the same.
The 2010 manufacture cells have slightly more capacity, at 42Ah
wow! congratulations... I'm only at 60.000 mile mark.. please clean the dash, I want to share with vectrix groups that mark!
60.000 Miles/ 96600 Km...
Hi all vectrix lovers, I need some help to get my first 100 mile on my VX-1 07 vectrix. I own this scooter from 2007 and ride once when was new , left it on garaje since then no time to figure how to get charge . If anyone get me some tips how to start to get my scooter to life - or put new batteries on - or what will be the best choice to start. I'm in Raleigh NC ,
Your battery pack is going to completely flat after being left unused for that amount of time, but it should be recoverable. However, it will initially need to be recharged using a suitable trickle charger to raise the battery voltage above 100V.
Check out this post to find out how to use a couple of cheap LED drivers as a homemade trickle charger to raise your battery voltage back up until the onboard charger is able to start again.
