This is a 52v battery designed to squeeze more power out of your stock 48 volt system without having to change your controller or motor. To get more information read our article on the benefit of 52 volt batteries.
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. (read our story on calculating 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, 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.

All 48v Luna Kits and Controllers are compatible with all our 52 volt batteries.
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.
Bought this with a BBSHD. Battery came with very good quality XT90 connectors (for the motor) and charges though an xt60. Has no problem supplying 30A for the motor, doesnt even get warm after repeated throttle use. Range is good for BBSHD, 30 km of urban riding at pas 4-5, with the occasional throttle blast up to 50+ km/h used just over half the charge. The battery bag it came with seems designed for a larger battery and takes up the whole frame. This battery on its own would only take up the front half of the frame. My only request for improvement would be to supply the battery with a snugger fitting triangle bag.
Great little battery .I use it in my small hydration pack running a 5pamp 2500w ludicrous controller on a luna bbshd. I ride on average 40 km a day 6 days a week I find this pack to be light weight and powerful. There is just enough battery range for my 40km commute with a bit of throttle fun time inc. I recommend this pack and luna cycle we are apart of a global community with a family feel.
