I need a new battery for my EVO 27`5 2015 model. The original battery is 48v/417Wh - I would like to replace it with a newer, higher capacity battery, either 500Wh or 600Wh. Will it fit on my bike? If not, is it possible to make it fit?

I believe all 2015 Evo models were 36 volt. Check the label on the pack. It might be possible to have your pack rebuilt to a higher capacity by these folks:


For a new pack I think you're confined to the original specs.

Ebmp can upgrade the pack to 500wh, but i would recommend FTH power, they do it for 300$.

I had a 416wh done by the Ebmp engineer few years ago.

Ebmp charges 500$.



And thee newest BH pack has 720wh for commuter Atom ! 21700cells. Only them from all the ebike companies.

Ideally would be great to find a a way to cut/weld into. the downtube and make that one fit. But is not enough space probably, and a lot of work also.

They went from 416wh as my 2015 Evo city has , to 720wh now in 2019 for same EVO CITY ...that is worthy of a Gold trophy.

And 1250Wh in 2022 ?? That would be enough for everyone and everything.

What about the 2017-2018 EVO Cross 500wh; will the 600wh battery from the Evo Cross Pro (same year model) fit? Looks like the frames are identical on the two versions.

If you have a 2015 Evo as stated, it is 36 volt. Evo's from 2016 on are 48 volt.

I guess you are right, then I have a 2016.., my mistake

Anyway my last question remains:
the newer EVO cross model (2017- ) with the new lighter frame; are the 500wh and the 600wh batteries interchangeable, or is it only the PRO version that fits the 600wh battery?

It’s a bit confusing to me using Wh but it is possible to increase Wh with the same number of cells, and is dependent on the Mah rating of the cells used. For example, If PF cells were used, 2900mah, the pack could be built with 3500mah 35E cells. A nice little boost.
