No Drill Battery Mount Kit

Finally a product that lets you mount your battery
in odd places without having to drill into your bike frame!


This provides a mount using standard M5 bolt holes and included M5 bolts compatible with most ebike kit hardcase battery solutions (including Luna Wolf batteries!)

Also includes heatshrink to keep your frame from getting scretched, and the hoseclamp can even be swapped out for a larger one if you are using a nonstandard frame with an overly large tube you are mounting onto (that said, this kit will work with the vast majority of bike frames right out of the box)

This mount should provide years of trouble free usage without ever needing to potentially compromise your frame. This is a common concern amongst folks using aluminum frames and needing to mount a battery mount into a nonstandard solution since it may hypothetically weaken the frame. This solves the issue easily.

This kit comprises everything needed for a set of two mount points: Two stainless steel hoseclamps, two lengths of heatshrink for usage with practically any length that help keep your frame pristine and unscratched, two of the mounts which provide M5 mount holes, and two low profile M5 bolts suitable for use with most ebike battery mounts.

Best of all, this kit is fully reusable since it is not drilled into the frame!

(Note: If using on a carbon frame take care not to over tighten it)

Lectric XP with A larger battery upgrade on rear rack.
Description and images below. (Not my bike)

"Did the second battery install today,
pretty straight forward given they use deans plugs by the controller,
just added a Y adapter and didn't have to do anything else to the bike.

It's a 15ah, 48v battery. I used a sheet of 1/4" King starboard
to bolt down the metal plate that came with the battery,
then mounting the starboard with metal plate onto the cargo rack,
slid the battery onto the metal plate and locked it in.

The 15ah battery is small enough for me to still strap the RockBros saddlebags over it.
You hardly even know its there if you are not looking for it!

Since both the XP battery and second battery have keys to turn them on and off,
I only turn on the one I'm using and keep the other off,
giving me a back-up source if the one I'm running on runs out of power.
Will be trying it out tomorrow."

"I know, its so easy to explain, its hard to believe that is all there is to add a second battery.
but it is easy as hell to do. The hardest part, is brainstorming how you want to mount
the battery onto the cargo rack. What I did, was by using zip ties, a cut of King (HDPE) Starboard
and mounting the track plate that comes with the battery onto the piece of starboard.
You could use a sheet of aluminum, stained wood, etc.
to even do this. or if you are really motivated, redesign the cargo rack for that matter!"

Videos Lectric XP with external battery install to rack (Not My Video)

"Just plug the charger into the standard charging port (on Lectric XP)
and all batteries will be charged simultaneously and
when they are done you will see green light on the charger."

"Both batteries will charge off one charger at the same time,
so no need to charge them separately unless you are
connecting them together for the first time."

" When you connect them together
they become one big battery, not separate batteries
and the voltage show is what both batteries are they equalize each other."


Batteries can also be charge individually.

"No Sparks, No Smoke, No Drama" (Not my bike)

"I recently posted my experience in battery life on my XP.
I depleted the battery at 22.5 miles after a ride on mostly
flat terrain at PAS 3, little wind, and 48º F. With camping
season ahead (hopefully!) and often days with no where to charge,
I decided it was time for an auxiliary battery.
The idea of an inconspicuous place to haul it and
being able to wire it in so that a stop to change batteries was unnecessary,
appealed to me. Posts by Mat Jessop and YouTubes by Sonny Whitehurst
gave me the courage to give it a try.
I went with a Chinese 48 volt 20 Ah battery off eBay.
Combined with the stock 10.4 Ah I will have a total of 30.4 Ah of battery.
That should give me a 60-70 mile range."


"The project begins with deciding how to haul the battery and charging both batteries
to the top. My Rock Brothers rack bag
https://www.amazon.com/RockBros-Waterproof-Leather-Bicycle-Pannier/dp/B079M1RDJ8
was a perfect size for the battery.
I then unfolded the bike, propped it up so that I could easily see into
the controller compartment (under the seat and connects to the battery
when folded.) I then removed the 4 screws to peer into the controller
electronics and gulped. It looked like I was about to do brain surgery!
That compartment has an opening in the bottom where other cables come
in to attach to the controller. That’s where the wire for the
auxiliary battery will exit the cavity. I’ll post a series of
photos showing what I did. They are not as elegant as Mat’s or Sonny’s
but may be of interest to those of you considering this addition.
It went smoothly and I think most DIYers will be able to do it in about an hour.
I made the hole in the rack bag with a soldering iron so as to
seal the fibers in the bag material. I spliced in the Dean’s connector
to make the connection with the aux battery after the wires
had been pulled into the bag so I could get by with a smaller hole in the bag.
I first connected the auxiliary battery, then folded the frame of
the bike to connect the stock battery. I sighed a relief when nothing
blew up and I pushed the start button and the display lit up!
I went for a short shakedown cruise and everything worked. Life is good."

Battery Mod connectors without soldering iron easily add replace change connectors on wires.

For those of you who don't want to use a soldering iron while adding a external battery on Lectric XP.

For those who buy a battery with A particular connector that you don't like or want or just want to add something better.

"30ah battery that I put inside a wooden case on the rack. Had to add a switch so
I could turn it off. Total I have 40.8ah of battery. I’ve ridden as much as 80 miles in a day.

Should be able to get 200 miles if you stay on PAS 2-3."

For those using a bag like the ROCKBROS Bike Rack Bag for they batteries and need to run wires into it. When you make a hole in bag for the wires you can use Brass Grommets instead.

***Also you may want to consider adding a waterproof connection to the outside of the bag for quick disconnect. That way you can take the battery out of the bag and or the bag with the battery in it off the bike without issue.***

I think I would opt for a different connector than those "RC" style deans connectors. Deans are inexpensive and easy to deal with, but they can also come loose over time. I think I'd rather use anderson connectors that lock into each other better. But still a nice writeup.

Battery Mounting without drilling


Hose clamps you could buy longer ones and use something like steel zip ties with it and heat shrink tubing if you interested in mounting a battery to your Lectric XP Frame with out drilling or using double sided mounting tape etc.

Secure Battery Mounting, Grin's Double and Triple Bob Anchors (Not my video)


"This video explains how our Double/Triple Bob Battery Anchors are used to provide a more secure attachment for mounting downtube battery packs to the frame tubing of a bicycle. They provide flexibility for your battery fitment regardless of your eyelet locations, and they secure the pack with much less wobble than having the cradle bolted directly to the raised eyelets. "

The Double Bob fits Hailong-03 battery enclosures

While the Triple Bob was designed to work equally well with Hailong-01, Reention, and 21700 downtube pack casings:

"An ebike user wanted me do an overview of how I installed the inline 20 amp fuse on my spare battery. A fuse is optional - its not required. I was trained in electronics and my philosophy is better safe than fireworks up your tail end. I apologize for the long video. Its 4+ minutes in duration. Hopefully it will inspire or answer a few of your burning questions regarding adding a spare battery to increase your travel distance or provide acceleration at the high peddle assist levels for longer durations:"

How to Install a Grommet On a Tarp.​


How to install a Grommet (Eyelet)​

Here is a waterproof grommet, called a cable plug. I drilled a successively larger hole in my bag (15/32" worked for final). The middle nut is fixed. Push/rotate the plug into the hole and tighten the rear nut. Then pass the wire through and tighten the front cap. There is a rubber seal inside that will secure the wires. Size PG-7 worked for double 14awg wires.
Since I took the pictures, I moved the plug to a spot lower on the front of the bag. I will cover up that old hole with a patch.

Having the second battery makes all the difference for me. I took my bike on a 48 mile trip yesterday and, while I was tired out, there was near 50% capacity left on tap.
