Replacement 48V 25.6ah battery cell pack for Juiced U500
Ease of installation
Posted by Ken on 2020 Feb 17th
Recently replaced the old 48v 15A battery original on the ODK500 V3 after 4+ years of constant use. The pack was easily removed and replaced using ready made connectors. Slid the new 48v 23 A battery into the original case. Plenty of capacity with the replacement with the good hill climbing power as needed. Good to keep the bike going plus extending the range.
Hilleater battery warranty is 1 year for failure or loss of capacity of more than 30%. The warranty covers parts only, not shipping or labour. Defective batteries will be replaced or repaired at our option.
Warranty does not cover:
Lithium batteries that have self discharged below 2V/cell from being left in storage for an extended period of time
Water damage, which does not affect the cells but can lead to unreliable BMS circuit behaviour
To keep U500V3s on the road, we are offering a replacement battery pack that will slide into the original case. It has all of the correct connectors, so replacement is plug and play. As always with large lithium batteries, extreme care must be taken in ensuring that the battery is installed correctly, if in doubt, contact your local e-bike or battery shop for installation.
The battery cells are Panasonic 18650, these are 10A rated in a 13S8P configuration, 25.6 amp hours, 1228 watt hours! These cells will have an easy life in this bike. We even include a new USB board to keep the USB charging functionality.
Early versions of the U500 may have different connections, so they will not be pin for pin replacements. The battery will still fit, and can be made to work, but you will have to replace connectors, so you should be expert with wiring to attempt this. If your battery has one power wire from the panel connector inside the case to the battery pack, then it is an early one.
