Not only does the 52v battery give you more power it also gives you more watt hours which means more range than a comparable amp hour 48 volt battery.
Luna Mate builds its packs with the finest BMS (battery management system) available so that you can plug in your battery and not worry about over charging, over heating or running its voltage down too low. Your cells are automatically balanced by the internal BMS in the battery. Our BMS includes such features as temperature over heat protection and advanced cell balancing. These features not only get the maximum performance out of your BMS they also keep your battery from getting to low, charging too high, or getting too hot and will automatically shut off your pack if it senses something is wrong.
Regarding Amps: These packs will easily put out 50amps (2000watts)and even more for short bursts. This battery is ideal for 50amp kits such as the Bafang BBSHD and Cyclone kits with minimal stress on the cells.
More than likely your controller is less than 30 amps and then you don't have to worry since your controller will only take from the battery what it needs. You cannot fry a controller by selecting a battery with too many amps. Voltage however, you need to be careful with.
Regarding voltage: This is a 14s (52 volt) battery. This means that with the same controller you will get more power from the same amps. It's fun but you need to make sure your controller can handle up to 58 volts which is what a 52-volt battery puts out when fully charged, otherwise you can fry your controller.
Most DIY controllers have a range of volts they will accept and most descent 48-volt controllers can handle 52 volts. This is something you must verify about your controller before ordering this battery. And more than likely the only way to really know is to test with a 52 volt battery.
This battery is made to perfectly fit in our triangle bags.
You can also use your own triangle bag or custom enclosure for this battery.
This is a heavy triangle pack so mounting is pretty crucial. Fortunately these are Fusion packs so a little vibration doesn't hurt very much but you should still treat lithium ion batteries with utter and extreme caution.. You do not want your pack bouncing around or banging against anything because it can ruin your pack and also be safety risk.
Make sure if it is mounted to your frame it is firmly mounted so it does not shake or jiggle, and proper padding is used when needed.
The battery is not cheap but it’s high quality, able to be turned on or off, is easy to charge, doesn’t heat up on charging and can be locked in so that any major bumps don’t knock it from its mount and no one can steal it. Range depends on level of assist. L9 on BBSHD and you are not going to get many kms out of it. L4 and you get at least 60km at 36-40km/hr on the flat with it even in a strong headwind (36km/hr in 30knts headwind, 40 km/hr on a still day). Am running the 48T Bafang cog on front and cruising with an 11 on the rear.
