Yeah, it is a 24V motor. That means it is setup for ~14.5A, and if I only use 12V I'll only get half the power output, so 175W.

As I mentioned in the first post. I think I can fairly easily work my way up to a 7 mile commute, but this would just help get up the bigger hills and not get to work all sweaty.
