I just purchased an WE conversion kit. It was real simple to install, it took about 1.5 hours. I am finding that the current unit does not have the power that I think I need for my 12 mile one way commute. I have been browsing this site and most posts on WE seem to be with the BD-36, so I thought I would start a new post. I think much is in other posts, but I am not sure how much it applies since I am using the BL-36.
I would like to add another 12v battery and run on 48v. Seems to me that this is not an issue for others with the BD-36. I assume this will carry over to the BL-36. If I go this route I will buy one 12v and use the same controller. I understand that I will need a new charger too.
Here are my questions:
1. Will I have any issue running 48v on the standard controller?
2. I have noticed that most of the 48v chargers sold on ebay have a three prong extension. My current charger has a RCA with just two leads. How would I convert one of these chargers to work with my battery pack?
3. I will need to make an adjustment to my rack to accommodate the additional battery and weight. Are there other more preferred methods to mount the battery pack?
I have included a pic of the bicycle. Was able to buy the bike from performance on clearance for $210, and bought the econversion kit on line from bernsonev
