what makes you think there is risk of a fire with these specific batteries? If they have an internal BMS, and use correct charger, how high is the risk of un-balanced overcharging? or, are you talking Li-ion versus LiFeSO4 chemistry ?

shopping for a replacement battery pack.... best deal on name brand (panasonic) seems to be on AliExpress.... thought I'd check in to ask if others have good/bad experience with these batteries or direct ship from AliExpress?

36v - 20ah - with charger, panasonic soft pack
$56 + $32 shipping air - 2wks https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000559535468.html?

This looks like a scam waiting to happen.

Aliexpress has never worked for me either. There always seems to be a problem with my password or whatever. However, some individuals have had excellent experience. Most of the time I've been able to locate something from a reputable company for almost the same price.

Try the ebike marketplace in Las Vegas. They either have it or can rebuild yours (I think).

Anyone in here bought a Hailong battery from Unit Pack Power recently? Reviews are good, just hoping to get some personal experiences.

Look at endless sphere reviews "What's wrong with UPP" or something similar.

Weelllll thats a bummer, unfortunately I'd ordered it earlier this week already after seeing their high reviews on ebay. I was hoping I could get some help regarding the power connecter to the battery base and the controller. Unfortunately mine don't match up and i'm not sure what I can do about it

Just watch it while charging and you should be OK (I'd charge it outside or in a safe place (fireplace, barbecue or ???).

Try Electro Bike World, they have supplied all of my battery needs and have the connectors you need:
