You know I’ve got a Wayscral, Basy 315…Norauto ebike.
An early …rock bottom of the range, lead battery, bedstead iron frame, heavyweight.
I read that someone has discovered that the lead battery, 24 volts, has exactly the same fitting as a newer model, which uses an exactly the same shape LITHIUM battery, but that is more volts. 36. I know if I ask Norauto if its OK to swap the lead battery for a lithium higher voltage battery…they are sure to say no…but all I’ve read so far, online, is that a higher voltage battery, could cause the motor to overheat.
But then what?
I know that its possible to change, from lead to lithium…but…
- how serious would the bigger voltage be?*
I mean…what happens?
Will it catch fire? Or will it just wear out the motor, faster?
Or not work at all?
The comment was made by someone who, like me, had an ancient model, and had already decided to fit the lithium battery, without the smallest concern and much delight, as of course a lithium battery is a fraction of the weight of the lead one.
I have to take a spare battery for long trips, so the weight of the whole rig, is about the same as a tank.
Perhaps someone knows about this stuff…? Thank you for reading this question!!!
