    I've been poring over LiFePO4 batteries and printing out pages of "information".

    Thanks to nonuse quickly pointing out how abysmal SmartBaterrie's feed back was, I was able to cancel the transaction, but I'm getting the feeling that looking for LFP batteries is like fishing in a toxic pool!
    It's so easy to build them in your basement and sell them to suckers (like me?) that the market is proliferated(?) with snake oil.

    So I read through the forum again and found Patterat's preferred conventional battery
    https://www.vmaxtanks.com/V15-64-AGM...tery_p_65.html,
    threw in the towel and ordered a pair as well as a proper charger
    https://www.vmaxtanks.com/BC2403XF-2...er-_p_137.html

    10% discount and free shipping! $137 and done!

    Its getting nice out! Nature calls. Practical Pig is in charge again.
    I ordered some stuff to put a 220V/50A outlet in my workshop so I can weld the heavier stock I'll use for the MB 350R ZX1 hoist so I can run this in the city (NYC) if I want.
    With the voltmeter on the joystick now, I should be able to avert a low battery problem when I'm doing a long run.

    Looks like good choices Phil,
    These lithiums were not available when I last checked my favorite local e-bike source, you saved money going LA:
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but you got the wrong charger end. You need the male XLR Connector not the female. Exchange it for this one: https://www.vmaxtanks.com/BC2403XM-2...er-_p_136.html

    No problem, Pat. My wife sings and one hat is sound man. I have both sexes in abundance.
    Good to hear from you. Where you been? Need that electronic hand throttle stuff yet?

    When you're ready, be in touch. I think you have my phone number which would be the best way to figure out just what you'll need/want.
    If you don't have it, PM me when you're ready.
    Thanks for all you do, Phil

    All is right. Apparently I randomly selected the female charger for my post. I ordered the "XM" charger and it works fine.
    I've fully charged both pairs of batteries and will attempt to load test both pairs with my 600A carbon pile at ~50A to
    a/ establish a baseline for the new batteries
    b/ find out how much weaker the old pair is that laid down on a ~mile hilly walk.

    Here is a link for the trailer: https://www.burley.com/product/travoy/

    Here is an overview of how I connected the trailer hitch to Rob'z ZRA (sorry, some is in Dutch, but I think you can get the idea):http://www.pitlarson.com/accessibili...-a-wheelchair/

    Partner of an incredible stroke survivor. Limitations: hemiparesis and neglect (functional paralysis and complete lack of awareness on one side). Equipment: TiLite ZRA 2 and 2GX, Spinergy ZX-1, RioMobility Firefly. Knowledge: relative newbie for high-level equipment (2012), but willing to try to help others who are new with similar limitations (definitely not a guru, but inquisitive).
