Hello Everyone, I have a question that you may be able to answer for me. I have a Ezip 750 scooter running two SLA 24v 12Ah battery packs in parallel. With 24Ah SLA's, the range isn't bad, yet the speed is the same @ 12-13 mph

I am looking a modding it and am considering changing the motor to a 48v 1000 watt, go to a 48v controller, and change the throttle to a 48v. The cost for all of this from TNC seems to be @ $200 plus shipping.

Now for batteries, when the SLA's die, I see that Lipos from Hobbyking is the way to go, and I can get 48v 10Ah Lipo's for @ $200, plus a Lipo charger for @ $100. I see that 10Ah is not a lot, but I can always double that at future date.

The question is what speed increase would I see from going to a 48v 1000w motor and 48v controller, would I double it? EX: currently get 12-13mph, would I go to @ 22-25mph?

Hopefully someone here has some experience and numbers to share with me… IAN…
