I may need this. Didn’t I also see you’ve got some battery packs?
I have the long range Gem lithium packs 180ah New . $2200
I’m in the middle of a move, so I dropped off the planet again. I’m done tomorrow, and can focus on the Gem then.
I"m figuring $700 on junk batteries.
Or $1200-$1800 on good ones.
Why not $2200 on REALLY good ones?
Where’s the flaw in my logic? It’s just money, right?
Tell me about your gem
I bought it from a car dealer in Sarasota who harvested the good charger for another gem. So I have no charger at all, and all but one battery is dead. So…
Why not start off right, right?
I sent the bad charger to Inwo, in hopes it could be rebuilt. Nope.
I’m a total newbie to lithium. I’ve owned a gem before, but never did anything more difficult than trickle charging the gel batteries. I grew up working on carborated motorcycles, so I’ve got some learnin’ to do.
Do you have batteries, too? I thought I saw an ad for batteries a while back, but maybe it was someone else. I’m starting on this project on Tuesday… Finally!
I have the extended range packs that are $2100 new . Lots of us run these . range will be 40-50 miles depending on speed , hills, tires . etc .
Bringing on a smaller set that should be 20-30 miles . Won’t be available for 2 weeks . Waiting for 2 people to get them installed and running for real world results . $1200
Both packs will make your gem act like you put a turbo in it .
Either pack will need you to order a BMS for it .
Can’t wait to see what the results are
While we are waiting on batteries I would suggest ordering the BMS , takes 3 weeks to get .
If I go with the smaller battery pack, I assume I can add to it later, right?
If you go with the 20 cell extend range pack you can add 4 more cells to make it high voltage . If you go with the #1 option 74ah you can not add cells .
You could technically add another 74ah pack but it would be a complicated set up .
I know you have the expertise and the sources. I’m curious why you don’t put together a “package” for inexperienced GEM owners who are on the verge of pulling the Lithium trigger
I have a DeltaQ Model 912-7200 charger in my Ford Think, looking to go Lithium batteries, what does it take to program for 72 volt Lithium or can you point me to a resource for info?
I am one of the few who can update DeltaQ to lithium. Your serial number appears to be one of the programmable versions. The charge $75 to update the charger software and install lithium profiles.
