Pros and Cons



A mid priced system is what I'm shooting for. Hopefully I can build a system with an overall efficiency of 80% or better, that costs less than $1000.
I'm also hoping to get the weight down to about 15 lbs (not counting batteries)
The batteries I currently using, Cyclon Monoblocs 60 volt pack, weight 31.5lbs. These batteries can produce 375 watts for 1 hour, that's more than anyone but an Elite Cyclist can produce, it's almost twice what I can produce and 3-4 times what the average cyclist can produce. Not bad for only 31.5 lbs.
I'm planning on switching to NiCads. A pack than can produce the same power as above will weigh less than 18lbs
