Voltage boost 24 -> 36v on the fly

Hey peeps,

I have been running a 24v 32AH battery n XYD 500w motor on my e300 for the last year. I can get a 20mile or 32km return trip with batteries charge to 4.2 and end of trip 3.82v per cell. Now I have some spare space under the deck to fit a home made 18650 12v pack I have scrounge from dead Dell laptop batteries at work.

I read on an endless-sphere FB page a dude had a switch connecting a 12v straight to the motor so he could have extra acceleration when needed.

Issues and best practice?

There are times when it would be nice to get up a Hill or pass someone at a push of a buttom!

Dave.

Depending if I go a 3s3p or a 3s4p I should be able to fit around 10Ah in there for the over volt function.
