5 mile range from a 48V 10Ah/480Wh battery? It does seem awfully low. My battery is bigger at 600Wh so I would expect more miles but even in my very hilly little town I can get 30+ miles from a charge, more as the routes flatten out. Perhaps your battery packs have even less capacity than you think. I have a watt meter similar to the one @harryS uses using it to evaluate batteries for my DIY ebikes with good results. You might consider making the investment as well.Hello fellow e-bikers, I buy my batteries from Aliexpress, really cheap.Can get a 10,000mah pack (48v) for around £50.
They have loads of packs of varying capacities, there highest claiming to be 100,000 mah, but frankly I don't believe it.
I brought a Dolidada pack, the sticker says 36,000 mah but it ain't.Its true capacity is about 10,000mah but at £50 it is
still a good value battery.My question is, how do I know if I buy a battery from Aliexpress, what the true capacity is?
I would like to experiment with batteries maybe buy a few more, perhaps even a 52volt for more power, but I must
know the true capacity beforehand, I need to be looking at a battery of about 30,000 mah capacity, that will get me about
15miles out of my e-bike, my current 2, 10,000mah get me about 5 miles each. I notice ebikes on line advertised saying they
get about 30 miles range from such a battery, that would be amazing.Why is my bike only doing 5 miles?
Anyway thanx for any tips and advice.
