I recently got an unrestricted super soco TC. Its a fun bike to ride and it looks the part. Quick enough out of green lights too. But there is a big problem uphill. I can barely keep 40 kmh in moderate inclines. I wouldnt mind spending a bit more power when needed because my commute still leaves plenty of battery to get back and forth a few times. Have anyone tinkered with the speed controller? Could it handle more power? From what i understand the motor is capable but the ESC might not be. Any thougts?
no way with stock controller
If someone can find a way to communicate with the controller via a computer then maybe, no luck as of yet.
Would having a battery paralleler and two batteries working together help with the moderate hills?
simple answer: no. the battery paralleler of Super Soco is an automated battery switcher, not a paralleler. So it does not give you 2x40 Ampere. The new NIU N-GT has a true paralleler as it seems.
But yes, it somewhat helps to keep the battery charged for a longer time during a trip, so you suffer from lower power due to voltage drop later and you can go uphill without overheating the flimsy battery connectors.
+ more comfortable
+ no connector overheating
+ the motorcycle stays longer at >30% state-of-charge
+ both batteries show their SOC in the speedometer
+ simultaneous charging
+ no more turbo lag (regeneration bug)
+ works with fast charger (but gets very warm >12 A)
- somewhat lower range
- high price
- the relay design is prone of stuck relays and stuck SOC display
- regeneration no longer possible
- no increased power, no increased currents
