|Owner's Other EVs||2005 Kona Kahuna|
2012 Custom Croborg
|Location||Johannesburg, Gauteng South Africa map|
|Vehicle||2003 Bladez Stand up scooter |
Someone donated a bladez 450se to me, well actually she gave me two, told me if I fixed one I could keep the other. So the first was fixed with a fresh set of batteries, the second is what you see here.
|Motor||unknown 450w Series Wound DC|
The standard 450w motor that comes on these scooters, overvolted and overpowered to 3500w
|Drivetrain||Standard bladez fare|
|Controller||unknown Lyen special|
Lyen from endless sphere provided it saying it was a 36v 1000 watt controller. In fact it seems to keep providing watts as required with no limits.
|Batteries||12 Headway 38120s, 3.20 Volt, Lithium Iron Phosphate|
I love headways, the newer batch with the black end caps seem to be far better than the former white end caps
|System Voltage||38 Volts|
|Charger||unknown 36v 4A charger|
Bought from BMSBATTERY and adjusted to 44.1v to perfectly balance my pack.
|DC/DC Converter|| |
|Instrumentation||Turnigy watt meter and a cycle computer.|
|Top Speed||23 MPH (37 KPH)|
23 on a scooter is quite frightening!
|Acceleration||Fast, especially on flat ground at 3300w!|
|Range||10 Miles (16 Kilometers)|
That's a guess
|Watt Hours/Mile||40 Wh/Mile |
Seems to be what I do on average.
|Seating Capacity||1 adult, and I can ride with my 6 year old standing on the board with me.|
|Curb Weight||35 Pounds (15 Kilograms)|
Haven't weighed it, but with the lithium pack only weighing 4kg it feels so much lighter.
|Conversion Time||About a week of actual work|
|Conversion Cost||$500. Bought a controller from monsterscooterparts which turned out to be a 48v controller rather than a 36v so was $75 wasted. No refund from monster as I was past the 15 day return period. Not happy about that. In future Lyen will get all my business.|
|Additional Features||Just a headlight and a tail light on my helmet.|
|Lots of fun and easy to put in the trunk of my car. I'm really enjoying it!|
