When I first heard of X-treme's plan to sell LiFePO4 bikes w/o BMS's I shook my head in disbelief. But there are several on V who bought those bikes and here's one person chiming in a year later saying "not a problem".
It seems therefore this group has some experience we can share about using LiFePO4 in real world situations. A few questions that come to mind are
- What precaution exists on X-treme's bikes for undervoltage? I assume overvoltage precaution is done by the charger.
- Have any of the owners monitored back balance? Observations?
- Have any of the owners added BMS systems?
