so to replace the cells is there de-soldering that needs to be done? this sounds like an awesome alternative! 🙂
Most common metod to connect this cells is to use sheet metal strips instead of wires, if you will build a battery from scratch a Spot Selder station is a good investment.
Super Soco batterys look different, maybe the transparent top can be unscrewed and the the cells is just clamped together, not soldered, hard to say on this picture;
Yes, you can add another battery as long as voltage is the same. SuperSoco TS and TC batteries are made of 17 series and each group of cells are charged to 4,1v per cell with the original charger. Maximum charge normally is 4,2v per cell but by charging and stopping at a lower voltage you get about double cycle life or use from your battery. I estimate use to 20000-40000km for a Soco battery. By then a full charge could give 50% of full capacity from when it was new.
I used my battery for 5000km before selling it as I didn't need it anymore.
Charge voltage stops at 69,7v with the original charger. I have seen that you can charge a Supersoco battery up to 15a, maybe its possible a little higher in risk to destroy BMS(Can't buy replacement). I have charged a battery that I used with a 8a charger and it worked flawlessly. The faster you charge, the more chance for the battery high temp error. It will in worst case scenario turn of charge or delay use of your moped until temperature gets back to normal or you unplug and plug back the charger or restart your Supersoco.
How to add another battery to your Supersoco:
You need to rebuild it all. (Very advanced level)
You can build and add a battery in parallel with the same attributes as the original battery. (Also advanced, buying the battery makes it easier but still connections must be correct!)
You buy a generic battery and only want to use it without the original battery. By doing so you lose the battery % status monitor. Still you need to connect battery + and - to the controller correctly.
Hello TC drivers,
I have Soco TC with 2 batteries 1 x original battery 60V30Ah and a 2nd battery 60V26AH with now 9000Km on the counter.
About 3 months ago after the upgrade of the computer, I had problems. The CT fell silent after driving for some time on the 26Ah battery.
This is not strong enough, a replacement battery from the dealer received the type 30Ah. Problem solved.
About a month ago I installed the Y-connector, after 2 weeks of driving, with the Y-connetor 1 battery fell away while driving.
The result, 15 seconds of driving and 15 seconds of driving without power.
That's how I came home. I disconnected the Y-connector and it turned out that 1 battery indicated empty while it is full.
With the 2nd battery came 3 days later the same problem with 1 difference, this indicates alternately empty and full but the TC keeps on driving.
Tomorrow to the dealer, both batteries will be tested.
I'll keep you informed.
It is a problem that they manage to dribble away the smallest question, have tried to ask if you can get an exact size in teh battery or a special charging contact but it seems that most of them runs everything via Google translate or are not technically proficient at all.
However, the prices are considering, but I do not think the choice of seller is so critical, they have the all the same technology, have bought most batteries at Riskcell Official Store where it was possible to confirm that I really got Japanese quality cells, even bought some battery from a seller who called himself Z Green or similar.
Another interesting tips can be;
Just got a newsletter from Sky Technologies
They stated that you can get rid of the taxes if you buy from them;
For European buyers:
All parcels be shipped by UPS or DPD,the following country no need to pay customs fee:
The delivery time is usually 7-15days after dispatch

We will pay the tax in the France Custom .you have to pay the second tax fee in your custom .nit usually take 10-20 days after we send.
