Ebike Update on progress with ryobi batteries 18v

I am making progress on the ebike. Here i am doing some of the assembly and also an initial mock up of the batteries. I will be using 3 18v ryobi batteries in series. It totals to around 60 volts when they are fully charged. Do you have any suggestions? Please lemme know. Thanks for watching. I hope that helped!

  1. Your setup is odd and you say heavy? My setup works perfect. 54v nominal, but closer to 60v+ when you use a volt meter. 4 amp hour lasts my 1000W hub motor about 5-8 miles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lowPO1DSo7g Also I’ve been using Ryobi Li Ion batteries from home depot for years now. they are 10x lighter than lead acid and they go just fine. It does not damage a lithium ion battery to drain it super fast or slow, it makes no. difference. Use my setup if you want a nicer way to connect the batteries.

  2. what Canon Camrea was that around your Neck at 0:43 in video

  3. I dont know bout batteries but my V10 in my bucket truck needs rebuildin’

    I used two 4ah Ryobi knock-off brand 18v batteries from Amazon to power a 36v, 500-watt e-bike hub motor, also from Amazon. I took it for a test run and I had some melting going on at the positive terminal on the battery. I used the same 3D printed PLA terminal cap that you used and it was melting and I believe there was slight melting on the battery around the terminal as well. My suspicion is that the battery has a defect, the terminal was not making a good connection (pretty sure not it), or the battery and/or terminals could not handle the increase in voltage/watts? Has anyone else experienced melting at the terminals when running in series?

  5. I’m not sure why you’re intent on using drill batteries, the largest battery that Ryobi make is a 5.0ah which is a 5s2p configuration. The runtime will be very poor with these smaller ryobi batteries. You are best off Making your own battery pack with 18650 cells and balance cables. Charging is very simple and cheap with a hobby charger. I was very unsure about making my own packs at first but it’s so simple and I was amazed at their performance and longevity

    ride your bike with your fullface

  7. Can it electacute you?

  8. I want to make a 36v 20ish amp battery to over power a 500 w motor that I have. I can’t find any videos to describe what is best or even what I really need. I came up with these numbers based on the motor. It said it could handle the V and Amps. I understand mAh is Amp but watt hours and amp hours confuse me.

    Hi – since Tesla fuses each cell – do you think this is vital for evokes
    Would love your feedback

  10. Master piece.lol

  11. How far will the bike go before they are dead

  12. how did fit the motor in the frame

  13. Because there’s more weight at the back will it wheelie good?

    I used 3 Hurcules batteries and they work great ! Cool video .

  15. I did almost this same thing on my last ebike , i used oth 40v and 18v ryobi batteries . The unspoken drawback is tool packs are not built very well and are made to burn out after while , using it on a ebike to much murder them . On ryobi batteries it typically shorts out the T1 or T2 terminal making the pack unable to charge or be used in a ryobi tool . If you were curious the cells inside are typically inr18650-13q 1300 mah cells

  16. What kit did you use ? I’m wanting to do the same using 6 9ah ryobis

  17. if i have a 48volts motor how many electric drill battery will i use?

  18. how did the batteries hold up? , were they li ion batteries ? what AH were they ?
