A new addition in 2020! A universal replacement battery for all 24V kits (Economy, Sprinter, Commuter, Twin Pack) and for the 36V Ranger kit. This 36V battery is built with a controller that is optimized to run all 24V kit Hilltopper motors, and all 36V kit Hilltopper motors. Rated at 36V 7.8 Ah it will provide 16-20+ miles of range in a small, slim battery. Built in the shock proof neoprene case. Built here in Seattle. Built with certified Samsung cells.
Requires a 36v charger and cable set. If you are replacing a 24V battery, make sure you order the battery with a 36v charger and a 36V cable set and use the discount code UpgradeTo36V to get $75 off your order. 36V batteries are more efficient then 24V, so if you own a Sprinter or Economy you will enjoy a 50-70% increased range. If you own a Commuter or Ranger you will see a 10 – 15% increase in battery range.
If you purchased your Hilltopper kit before 2018 please contact customer support via email at email@example.com first to make sure this battery will fit your plugs (we changed all of our kits to plugs with an even higher waterproofy-ness rating in 2018 since we live in Seattle and it rains a lot). Or just plan on getting the new cable set and using the code above. The cable set includes a variable speed throttle, which is a cool upgrade from the push button on the 24V.
Also, DIY tip: for 24V kits you can order a battery module for $136 less. (Some assembly required.) Typically the module is what wears out first in an e-bike battery, so this hack is a great way for you to enjoy like new battery performance while also saving money. Ask firstname.lastname@example.org for tips on how to do this.
