    A minimalist eBay $189.95 kit install.

    First run with 48V.

    An AC/DC 48V converter is used instead of batteries.

    No PAS (Pedal Assist), no brake switch connection.

    I had to work out some issues along the way, but once you figure it out, it is really easy.

    did the kit not come with batteries?
    what kind are you going to install?

    I use reclaimed laptop batteries.

    This was my first design:

    For 48V 10+ Ahr pack there will be 12 groups of 5 cells in a new battery holder that I am designing.

    Each 18650 will clip in and be replaceable.
