I was looking for the best and easy way to upgrade add a second battery to my Lectric XP and came across this video on YouTube. (Not my video)

"Lectric Xp - How I added a LARGER second battery to my Lectric XP"

You can run your batteries in parallel (on) at the same time,

just make sure both are fully charge before connecting them together.
THIS MOD CAN BE DONE WITHOUT ANY SOLDERING YOU JUST NEED THE CORRECT CONNECTORS/ADAPTORS.


(From video description)
"
The vid they dont want you to see !!! So they make $ charging MORE for their weaker expensive batteries This shows you how simple it is to use a different battery IN 5 MINUTES !! I can go as far as 3 stock 10.4ah batteries that I would spend close to $600 w/chargers NOT INCLUDED to buy 2 extra lectric 10.4ah batteries to go as far as I do daily with this set up. You can buy a 48v 20ah for about $200 + or - and it comes with the charger so we charge both batteries at the same time if needed. First, " Lectric " is a awesome company with in my opinion a " 5 star customer service." The bikes are very good and a blast !! Some of You may have other ebikes with 48v batteries and you may want to use that battery you already own. I dont do vids but people kept asking me on fb HOW? What? Theres no other videos showing this easy way to get more range with less cost. Duel battery Lectric xp - This is how I added a extra second Battery - 48v 15.9ah aftermarket battery to my Lectric XP e bikes. It takes me about 5 min to do. Theres cheaper/better batteries and connectors out there than the ones I show you in the vid, which I bought over a year ago . My wife and I were in a hurry for more juice !!! This bike is going to her son in Minnesota !!! Im not advising anyone to do this, Im showing people how I did it to my Lectric ebikes. And I LOVE it. We use the bigger battery as our main battery as we like the speed and power that goes along with a bigger stronger battery. We do charge them both at the same time. This is how I do it. Share it and like it. Don't bother subscribing Im not out for popularity but to show the people this easy way to use a different battery. Lectric is a GREAT company with GOOD bikes !!!"

Unknown chinabrand batteries are generally a bad idea and can start fires much more so than trusted brands like LG, Samsung, Panasonic etcetc.

Is it worth a hundred dollars or so savings if your house catches fire? Doubt it.

I have heard this before but these Chinese sellers seem to sell a lot of these batteries on eBay and you don't see negative feedback like this battery burn down my house don't buy from this seller. Batteries listed here are from sellers many Lectric XP owners have brought from. In general I agree with you you get what you pay for. Buy and upgrade at your own risk.

heheh awesome, Im still using the same setup for music :p

In general I would say https://em3ev.com is a trusted source for good batteries that are a decent price, also https://lunacycle.com batteries but those are super expensive.

Oh and GrinTech is awesome https://ebikes.ca/shop.html

UPP used to be a good source, but Ive heard their quality has been really slipping so I dont recommend them

DUAL BATTERY CONVERTER - INSTANTLY DOUBLE YOUR RIDING RANGE!​



"Have you ever wondered about what to do with all your old ebike battery packs ?Watt Wagons is introducing an incredibly easy way to use your old battery packs and double your riding range. This converter will only work with two packs of the same voltage (e.g. 2x48v, or 2x52v). This converter will be available in May 2020."

(Batteries have to be the same voltage.)

  1. Compatible with 36v, 48v, 52v style batteries
  2. Battery capacity can be different - e.g. 11 ah, and 17.5ah
  3. Battery SOC (state of charge) can be different - e.g. one can be charged to 75%, and other to 25%
  4. Current range - up to 60A continuous discharge
  5. There is no dependencies on the motor
If the batteries have different SOC, the converter will use the battery with the higher SOC first.

I wired up a 2nd LectricXP battery in parallel that I attached to the rear rack, made a huge difference. Pulling 20amps on the stock battery sags it so hard, all these companies provide batteries that are basically maxed out in their stock setup, they should be building batteries with some headroom like 30 amp capable but only pulling 20amp.

Agree, Lectric should be offering a larger battery upgrade or making it easier (kit) for people to add a second battery connected in parallel.

You can also mount a battery to Lectric XP frame using
3M double sided tape (If you prefer NOT to drill into frame).

As Youtuber DavidBrandNew https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSKl3JFcdyIj04P6P_NJ2WA/videos
did. This way you can save Lectric XP rack for your other needs if needed.


This is the battery that was use in picture below mounted
to Lectric XP frame with 3M double sided tape.

According to him "mounted the battery bracket to the frame. Its super strong.
It won’t move at all." battery goes in the bracket.
