eBike electrical

Hello,

I have a Daymak "Eagle" ebike. Eagle | Scooter Ebikes | Electric Scooters | Daymak

My, ebike has 6 12v batteries from factory however I would like to add an additional 2 12v batteries in parallel if possible? If so what additions would I need to make not to kill my motor?

Thank you

No problem with adding batteries - it won't kill your motor. Adding batteries in parallel increases the total capacity - longer drain time.

Just make sure you use the same gauge wire that is originally on the bike.
