Guys & gals I have spent the last month or so checking battery mileage at different PAS levels.

My 1st test was to check mileage against the manufacturers stated mileage for PAS level 2, which the manufacturer stated 108 miles on a single charge.

Test 1:

I'm here to say in PAS level 2 I got 115miles on the 1st charge, with 1 battery bar still remaining & a battery voltage of 44.1 volts. So I'm happy it exceeded the stated mileage, but it was all highway riding. PAS 2 is 18.5 mph. Then Charged batteries.

Test 2:
Ok on this test I stayed in PAS level 3 & got 111 miles on a charge & still had 1 remaining battery bar & battery voltage was 44.2 volts. Also on this test I had 8 miles in unlocked mode due to traffic flow. PAS Level 3 is 25mph. Again all highway riding. Charged batteries.

Test 3: Offroad
Ok on this test I was in PAS level 2 & got 92 miles of strictly offroad riding, I'm talking fairly heavy off roading, rock trails, ditches, creeks, center of railroad tracks, you name it. Lmao, I was hard on the old girl. After being beat to death from the riding conditions, I had 1 battery bar remaining, & battery voltage was 44.5 volts.

Also all of these test were performed with both hub motors engaged. Soo I'm real happy with my mileage. & I got more tests to run & post my results.

Also have any of you E-bike owners performed similar tests. If so, feel free to join in & comment. I'd would like to hear your results.

Freego F3 ProMax ebike with dual batterys & 55ah of battery capacity.

Thanks for listening to my rambling.
 
I have started testing different PAS levels with the factory programming on my bike. I do want to adjust the assist level scale some to make each level more linear in progression.

My bike has a stated range of "up to" 55 miles purely electric and 70 with pedal assist. Both of these figures are in PAS 1, which on it's own nets maybe 8 to 10mph.

Since level 4 is currently my "top speed" mode and 5 is still limited (I haven't unlocked it yet) I haven't done any testing with it yet. I can hold 22mph in 7th gear assisting in 4. 5th actually slows down to 20 due to the limiter.

This is with a single 20ah battery. Ridden from a full charge. My ranges are "ish" because they have some margin if error because I didn't measure start and end voltages, but accurate enough I feel. Assistance from me is in different gears but maintaining a similar pedal rpm and effort from me.

PAS 3. Average speed with me assisting is 18.5mph. Range is approximately 51 miles.

PAS 2. Average speed with assistance 14.2mph. Range is approximately 62 miles. This was split between 2 different rides on 1 charge a day apart.

PAS 1. Average speed 9.1mph with assistance. Range is right around 70 miles, maybe a bit better. I only rode it down to half a battery as I didn't have enough time to ride that far.

Once I have a full charge and some sunlight I am planning to do a throttle only range test in PAS 4. I suspect my range to be around 35 miles with an average speed of 20mph.

Edit: since tire pressure was brought up. I keep mine at 20psi, always checked and adjusted before each ride.
 
I thought I had lost 20% of my battery range but I soon realized I had been riding with under 15 PSI in my tires

Once I put 20 PSI back in my tires my battery range went up
Yeah I been reading up on battery loss over time. Most things i have read, mention/talk about how you should expect to loss 20% battery capacity/ life in the 1st year or 2 of owning a ebike.

But they also say/mention that if you buy some high dollar battery charger like the Grin, you can prevent the 20% battery loss for a longer period/time.

Yes my bike is a mileage hog if I air my tires down to 12-15psi. I keep mine at 20-22psi & that's how I performed these tests.

Glad to hear you have been range testing your bike, I did not know if you had anytime to perform your test on your ebike.

Also I did forget to say in my above post, that I was pedaling in my tests. Ghost pedaling that is. My single speed 125lbs ebike. My ebike is a tank to pedal without battery.

Lmao I know i had to pedal it once for 4 miles with no power. I thought I was going to have a heart attack b4 I got back home.🤣😂🤣
 
I'm not gonna pedal all day in PAS to test my battery range so you won't be getting any test results from me :LOL:
Yeah but I think your Rad thread you got, havent you mentioned you got 2 batterys & that you usually pedal in 1 direction & when the battery is dead.

You then install the second battery & turn around & pedal your way home. Didnt you mention in that thread the mileage you were seeing.

Yep but I use throttle 90% of the time
