This is a 52v battery designed to squeeze more power out of your stock 48 volt system without damaging your 48v controller or motor. To get more information read our article on 52 volt batteries.
Not only does the 52v battery give you more power, it also gives you more range than a comparable amp hour 48 volt battery. (read our story on calculating range)
This new slim case is one of the newest ebike cases to hit the market. It is designed to be as small as possible to fit inside the triangle of most bikes where the water bottle goes and give a more stealthy look. You can also mount it in any other place of your choice and it would even make a great backpack battery.
We designed these packs using a common ebike case, but filled them with quality brand name 18650 cells utilizing the latest battery chemistry to get the highest possible power density. This means despite these packs small size and light weight, they will get you tons and tons of range.
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. 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 30amps (1500 watts) and even more for short bursts.
More than likely your controller is less than 30amps and then you don't have to worry since your controller will only take the amps from the battery what it needs. You cannot fry a controller by selecting a high performance battery with too many amps. Voltage however, you need to be careful with.
Regarding voltage: This is a 14s (52 volt) battery, which means it should be easily compatible with any 48v kit or ebike on the market no matter what the manufacturer might say (they would prefer that you pay more and buy only their batteries).
Most people mount this battery to the downtube of their frame (where the water bottle usually goes) but it’s very versatile where it can be mounted. Because it is so lightweight (3.8kgs) it can also be used in a backpack.
This is a very easy to mount battery. It has a mounting bracket that will mount to most water bottle screw holes in the frame. If not you can drill threaded holes into your frame to accommodate it. Or you can use zip-ties etc. Once the bracket is installed it's a breeze to take the battery on and off. So you can have extra batteries that you carry on your ride that would easily fit in a backpack or on the racks on your bike.
Great battery in the new style cradle. If you have e a new engine make sure it runs at 58.7V ( fully charged 52v battery) or you’ll get an error message. If you do you’ll have to flash the bios on the controller( technical but simple) however to do this you need a battery with a on off switch which this does not have.
totally recommend this product!!amazing battery and a perfect companion for BBSHD!!
I am new to and absolutely loving riding my electric bike. I can't give a comparison to other batteries however my setup with a BBSHD and 52V GA SHARKPACK has me smiling and finding any excuse too ride somewhere instead of taking the car! I can get ~30km out of a full charge going plenty fast enough to and from work. Going off road takes mountain biking to a whole new level. It is super exhilarating though we both (BBSHD at max power and I) struggle going up some very steep terrain in the lowest gear. Admittedly I wouldn't even attempt it without power assistance! PRODUCT NOTES: 1 - Battery can be incorrectly mounted into the base. The middle lugs need to be offset (instead of centered) so battery can only be installed into correct location. 2 - The top lugs broke off my battery when it jumped out of the base. I had unwittingly locked the battery when it was not seated correctly (See #1) so while it appeared to be locked in place the bolt was in thin air and not engaged into the base. 3 - The controller needs a separate on/off switch or ideally the battery lock should be in 3 stages - Unlock, Lock, On. This way the battery can be safely left on the bike but unable to be powered on. Why? A curious workmate turned on the bike and accidentally turned the throttle resulting in the bike launching forward and being damaged.
Ive had about 600km out of this pack so far, and I am really quite happy with it. The quick change mechanism with key lock, the fuel gauge style display, and the small size coupled with 30A continuous current at 700Wh capacity, means theres plenty to like about this battery. I get good range out of it, and I can thrash my BBS02 and the pack barely gets warm, though this is with the BBS02 current limited to 23A. I have not tested it with the BBSHD, but reports say that it gets warm but not dangerous warm driving a BBSHD offroad. The ability to mount the battery down low on the frame in the triangle keeps it protected and out of the way, but most importantly, the weight is low and near the centre of the bike, which makes my bike feel like the battery is not even there. Being 52V means it has an enjoyable zippiness to it, it really beats the pants off a 48V battery. Fresh off the charger (90% of course), its a joy to ride. Cons? The aluminium heatsink on the bottom of the mounting bracket is prone to corrosion/oxidation from water, as it is on the frame side, it gets exposed to water and dirt during inclement weather. You have to be a little bit careful sliding the battery into the bracket, but it is not a terribly fiddly exercise. The plastic clips that slide into it are not bulletproof, so be careful with it, but they wont break off if you look at them funny. Overall, these Panasonic GA cells really are the bees knees right now, high capacity and high current while keeping cool makes this one highly recommended battery option. The enclosure and bracket design as well as these GA batteries, make this highly recommended for fellow BBS02 owners.
