Started as a lead acid conversion, modified to lithium a few years
ago. I purchased used as commuter. 4-20-17 so far few problems, small issue with terminal strip
melting. Replaced. Reprogram controller to optimize. Cleaned potbox. Installed water guard in grill to
reduce wetting electronics. Some tweaking of bms, installed keep charged transformer for 12 volt
battery. Solid transportation so far.
