    I hope you have the right balancing equipment fitted to enable safe charging from the bike.

    On the instructions/guide it says as long as you’re original charger doesn’t go above 15 volts it is ok. But I ordered one of these anyway .Lithium battery.-5a5885dd-c29b-4288-91ab-c863a3cf1a11.png

    You'll be fine re charging if it's got a BMS built in ... After all the bikes alternator doesn't know it's a lithium battery 🙂
    Just don't use a charger over 2amps

    The alternator is capable of 48A so I don't see any reason why you would want to limit an external charger.

    Balancing should be taken care of inside the battery

    Shouldn't need it. A charger as dumb as the bike charging system will suffice. Nothing special needed at all, as the charge protection circuits are internal

    The first Lithium bike batteries didn't have internal balancing, so it was corrected periodically by connecting up a special charger. That system has (should have?) gone the way of the Dodo by now.
    If it only has 2 terminals, like any old PbSO4 battery, treat it like one.

    I always feel better and more confident when you give the facts on this forum .Cheers Errol.

    Couldn't help myself Tony. I'm an engineer.
    It's hard to argue against science, but people keep trying.
