One of the most confusing issues regarding an electric bike conversion kit is the battery that you need to install. The main problem is that a lot of people don’t even know the capacity of their battery before they start to do any modifications. It is also essential to note that in most cases you can just increase the current while the battery is still running and use the remaining capacity for the next few miles. So here’s how you find out the right battery for your electric bike:
If you’re going to buy a new e-bikes battery for your first time, I would recommend that you take care of it. This will make sure that it lasts for a long time and that you won’t have to change it after a couple of years. For instance, if your battery capacity is 14 and its ampere hours is 8, you’ll get 14V x 8Ah = 360 watt hours. 360 watt hours is the maximum power capacity of your electric bicycles battery.
It is also very important to know the maximum speed of your e-bikes tires because this will determine the number of miles per hour that your bicycle can go. Remember that the lower the speed, the more power is generated and the more batteries are required to handle it. Most bicycle manufactures specify the maximum speed of their tires on the tire sidewall. The sidewall may not be printed on your tire but it is there. To check your maximum speed for your bicycle, turn the ignition switch on and then do a simple fast speed test and record it.
