Last time you heard from me I was thinking through some ideas on how to arrange the battery and panels on my Solar eBike. In this video I’ll show you how I created an expandable battery pack!
I’m planning to upgrade my Rad Rover eBike
with a solar charging system so that I can harness the power of the sun when riding around. I have a few ideas so far on how to set it up, but haven’t settled on anything.
I’m hoping some of you have some ideas for how to solve the issues I mention towards the end of the video.
I recently gave my motorized bicycle to my good friend Jeremiah the Nomad Man
, and picked up a Rad Rover
electric bike (eBike) as my secondary vehicle. Come along as I use the bike to haul a large heavy object 8 miles back from town, while still having over 3/5ths charge in the battery after 16 miles round trip.
This was up and down steep hills so it’s pretty impressive in my book… I hope to convert this bike and trailer into my primary transport for cross country nomadic traveling. No licensing, registration, insurance or expensive maintenance, and it’s powered by the sun… Yes!
