Default Amp draw on batt.?

I apolognize in advance....I know this info. is somewhere in these forums already!

Does a higher amp controller burn the batts. down that much quicker than say a lesser. A little more info: On 48volts, stock motor,...is more than 500amps a bigger draw on the batts. or only when you upgrade the motor. For future upgrades, bigger is better right....or is it overkill.

It will draw more amps if its needed. If you have a 500 amp controller and a stock motor it will only "use" around 400-450 ish amps max. So your run time will be about the same as stock. Now add a hot motor capable of pulling lots of amps and your run time will decrease.

Roady,
Thank....as I thought, just wanted to make sure. So, going with something like 650 isn't going to make a real difference until I up the motor and then cables, solenoid, f/r, etc. I'm on a budget these days....one piece at a time. LOL.

Exactly. It may use an UNnoticable amount but as soon as you start using a hotter motor the run time will decrease.

Your right foot will be the biggest factor in the decrease in run time. LOL!
