My Bionx PL500HS' 36V 9AH battery is about half its capacity after 8000 miles of riding. So I'm thinking of replacing the battery. I heard you can replace it with a 48V. I was wondering if anyone has done this before. If so, were there any special configurations you had to perform? I don't have the G2 console. I have the old console. And what kind of performance difference did you feel?

All my edrives /ebike kits/ are overvoltage protected among other protections like thermal one .
There are to me normal futures of any civilized electric drive which is built to Western standards.
BIONX motor controller has whatever rated capacitors and other components are voltage rated also.
Imagine if you apply 48V instead of 36V to you BIONX.
Of course BIONX manufactures 48V drive but it is completely different from yours.
