Default Re: Lithium time for my Drive2

PAT911,

I took your advice and installed the Renogy battery monitor. Sweet!

All is well in my "new" LiFePO4 powered Yamaha!

Hope all is well. I ran across your post while thinking about upgrading my batteries to lithium as well!
How are you liking them? Any issues?
Also do you have any upgrades? Iím asking because I have Dons motor and 300 amp controller in my cart.

No upgrades aside from lights, lift, tires. I'd be interested in your battery install (if you go this route) with Dons motor and controller.

I just drive the crap out of it with factory controller/motor so far.

I do need to pay attention more and see what kind of distance I'm getting. I just plug it in when the battery monitor starts getting down there...

Well, I'm loving the lithium batteries. Of course, the natural progression is more upgrades!

I just received the AllTrax 400XCT and a SW180 solenoid from ScottyB.

Simple install and immediately hit 21mph on flat ground

After the test drive I ordered up two more of the Allied 48V/30AH lithium batteries.

I know the next step will likely be a new motor when the stock Hitachi poops out.

Well, it took about 5 weeks, but the 2 additional Allied 48V 30AH batteries were delivered last week.

So now I have a respectful 120AH capacity.

I need to pay attention and see what kind of range I can expect. Normally I just run 1/2 mile down the driveway for mail and garbage runs and charge it when I think about it.

I've been waiting for an Eco 72ah but see that Plowman's has Allieds in stock so I may go that route. They appear to be "plug & Play" on the installation video. Was that the case?

In my Drive2, yes, plug and play for the most part
