Hi, first time poster, long time reader! :)
I'm about to build a new e-bike with a Golden Motor rear hub, and I'm about to choose the battery. Of course, I want some LiFePO4, and I have a few choices.
If you had a choice between C-LiFePO4 36V 7.5Ah from PHET or LiFePO4 36V 12Ah from YESA, which one would you choose and why? I need to do an flat (but windy) trip to work 50-60km roundtrip every day. I could recharge at work if necessary (but that would reduce the life of the battery! half as many cycles/roundtrips)
I was thinking that 1Ah is 1Ah, whether it comes from a NiMH or a LiFePO4. Am I right? What kind of kilometrage can we expect from a 7.5Ah battery vs a 12Ah? I'm about 180lbs.
Thanks for any input on this!
