Well I finally got my battery refund last week. Took long enough but at least they refunded the current price which is higher that when I bought it and all my shipping. So now I can buy the same 60V battery at the new higher price or go with something else which I think may be best. My only concern is I bought a $100 charger based on the 60V battery. If I go with a 52 or 48 I either need to return the charger, which I'm tired of returning things, or I think I can open up the charger and change some settings to get a different output voltage. Currently (LOL) it's 67.2v at 5 amps and I think cuts off at 95%. It's a KP400A charger. I would rather have a 52 or 48v battery. Anybody know if you can change these things? I think I'd rather have it cut off at 90% as well. The company that sells it from China lists all possible voltages from 12-60v available with this charger
According to some other videos similar chargers have 3 pots inside to change all these settings
I guess I just will open it up and see what's inside.
