Introduction: DIY EBike Battery Pack

About: Awesome Electronics Tutorials, Projects and How To´s

In this project I will show you how to combine Li-Ion cells, nickel strips and a BMS (Battery Management System) in order to create a battery pack for an EBike. My pack has a voltage of 48V, a capacity of 5Ah and an output current of 20A but you can easily add more cells to alter those values. Let's get started!

Step 1: Watch the Video!

The video gives you all the information you need to create your own EBike battery pack. But I will present you some additional information in the next steps.

Step 2: Order Your Components!

Step 4: Success!

You did it! You just created your own EBike Battery pack!
