We do not recommend this modification being undertaken by the inexperienced individual as risk of fire.
The Sur Ron battery has been designed to have a massive amount of “Redundancy” or “A lot left in the Bank”
Sur Ron built their standard battery with a cell type and configuration to handle a restricted 60 Amps standard, but the set up with restriction removed can actually handle 110Amps (The cell manufacturers data sheet states 11 x 10 A =110Amps).
The battery has a management system known as a “BMS” (Battery Management System). This has various functions: Evenly “Balance” charge the individual cell series that make up the battery. Restrict the output of the battery and stop the battery from being drained to low “LVC” (Low battery Cut off). It simply does this by cutting off the power.
Bypassing the BMS for discharge can make full use of the available power from the Panasonic cells. These individual cells have a combined manufactures continuous rating of 110 Amps. In other words they are designed to handle this amount of power until they go flat. However, they can still handle higher power safely for short periods. The engineers at ERT and Lightspeed Batteires have set the bigger ASI 4000 and ASI 8000 to have a burst of 125A in the “Battery Bypass Mode”. The ASI 2000 can only maintain 90 Amps continuous, within the cell manufacturers 110A.
This may have confused you, but think it like this. A motorbike has a rev limiter: Normal band, yellow band (just for a few seconds), red band (dont enter except for a split second) The motor can rev up just up before in the normal zone without issues, on the Sur Ron modified equivalent of 110Amps. Yellow would be up to 125 Amps. Red – the controller wont allow it! Sur Ron have restricted the battery by nearly 50% from 110 Amps to only 60 Amps.
Our work is of the highest quality using copper ring connectors both crimped and the soldered. High quality silicon 10 AWG cable (x3) to habld ethe additional load, Special insulating silicon based sealant (not he stuff you use in your bathroom!) to insulate the connections or high crade heat tube, doubled and tied. The main join is soldered and not just crimped and everything done is a working environment to stop mistakes or secondary damage from solder drips ect.
The benefits of removing the discharged restriction:
Free up restricted power for aftermarket controler (ASI BAC 2000/4000/8000 or nay controller set to max 110DC Amps
Power (watts) up by 50%
Significant improvement in acceleration and top speed
Negatives of removing the discharged restriction:
Dangerous to undertake modification.
Must have a modern upmarket controller that can monitor low voltage shut off and DC amps set no higher than 125A.
May void warranties.
Your fuel gauge percentage will be inaccurate. Use your volt reading for accuracy 67v full, 60v half 54V go home, 48V about to stop.
buy this service.
we send you a shipping address.
send your battery to us , (we will recommend a courier service for you).
We do the bypass and send it back with the courier 48hrs after receiving your battery
We guarantee to have your battery back with you within 3-5 working days from receipt of the battery. Normally much faster.
Our price includes the cost of all parts, labor and return postage.
Please understand that this modification, once completed is very safe but damage may occurs to your battery if you continuously run it at full power.
Your BMS Will still balance charge BMS
power comes direct from the battery missing out the bms
your controller is independent and will manage the low voltage cut off
This is an aftermarket unofficial modification undertaken by a UK professional battery builder. We can not however take any liability ensuring from this modification. You undertake this service at your own risk and understand that your battery will be changed and not used as designed by the manufacturer. Any Lithium Battery is a risk to fire and this modification will not increase that risk and must not be used in a court of law or any other public announcement to suggest that any ensuing fire or damage was caused by this modification.
