    What Chinese site carries ebike batteries/

    Looking for a battery for Joulvert Playa Journey Ebike.
    Someone here once said there's a place to get them cheaper than the $350 on the website.
    Plus, delivery is 60 days out.
    Samsung SDI cells, 36 Volt, 11amp.

    I assume if you're getting them from China that counterfeiting is a concern, with possible risk of fire / explosion. Not sure if there's a way to conclusively determine that you're getting real Samsung product, but definitely do whatever you can to verify before ordering.

    If they are anything like the Chinese batteries I bought for my Fuji camera, they'll suck.

    Any 36V should work as long as it fits the holder and connectors. There are 3 or 4 quality manufacturers that should have something for you. Most use the 18650 cells.

    Probably do not want any burnt bike action.

    Fuck it, I said. Just dished out $469 for a battery and charger. Thanx. guys. I didn't want to fuck around and come up short.
    In burning man time, it's now a mad dash to the playa, getting prepped and shit.

    Whatabout hover board batteries?? Might they be explosive enough? Seems to have jumped the shark so batteries might be cheaper now.
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!
