My motor hub is great and I'm logging mile after mile on it, but after about 4-5 miles of bumpy street riding I'll get a disconnected battery, lose power and have to stop to fidgit and reconnect it(with a lovely spark to go with it).
I've tried crimping the connections but they just get jarred loose with the SLAs bouncing incessantly. I have 3 8lbs SLAs bracketed tightly to my rear rack but the slip on connections aren't doing the job.
There are little holes in the SLA connections, should I use little screw/bolts to secure the wires?? I'm drawing up plans to move some of the batteries to the inside of my bike frame so maybe I'll wait, but is Soldering a good idea? I could solder female connections to the battery terminals and make a more efficient contact.
The Hub Motor is Strong but my Battery Setup is frustrating me.
