    One option to increase the power of a little 250W e-bike is said to be to change its controller to a 'smart' one, thereby enabling access to the battery's 36V*11A full 350W power.

    Has anyone had any experience of this: does it work?

    Kind of hard to offer anything meaningful with no product info at all.

    It all comes down to what your motor will take.
    If it is only rated at 250W and you throw 350W at it might just literally Toast it.

    Otherwise, heck ya, set your controller to give the motor everything the battery has.

    There are downsides to running a battery at or above what it likes of course, but again with no clue to what you have it's just random advice.
