Random recheck to see the market status of graphene batteries reveals this. And rough calculations suggest my ebike would get a little more energy capacity in slightly less space and with much less weight.

"LRP TC Stock Spec P5-HV Graphene 2S LiPo 60C Battery (7.6V/8000mAh). The HV-LiPo Graphene cells offer even more power than before and can be charged up to 8.7V without problem. The improved cell chemistry generates an extremely low internal resistance and therefore less heat buildup under load. HDS-7 cell chemistry guarantees maximum performance. Specially developed for stock racing classes with highest possible voltage output for maximum speed and acceleration.

P5-HV Technology: 5mm gold plated battery plugs and 7.6V (2S) technology for maximum power
HV-LiPo GRAPHENE cells: High power LiPo cells that can be charged up to 8.70V (2S)! Maximum Power!
100% compatible for 8.40V (2S): More Power than LRP 2016 batteries at 8.40V charging!
Improved Lifetime: Highly improved lifetme when charged to 8.40V (2S) only!
HDS-7 Chemistry: Improved chemistry for low internal resistance + less heat build-up under load = Maximum power until the end of your run
5mm Gold Works Team connectors included
3C Charge current
Charge with your standard LiPo charger for 8.4V or with LiHV charger for 8.7V
Complying with the rules of the following federations and race series: EFRA, IFMAR, ROAR, JMRCA, BRCA, DMC

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
