How much climb your C5 ?
« on: 20, February, 2011 - 11:14:24 »
Despite fresh new battery, my C5 runs well only on a flat road ... when the way starts to become a little inclined the speed decrease dramatically (8-5 km/h) and must start to pedal.  :-[

I'm 90kg in weigh, plus 10kg of battery ... so i wonder if 100 Kg of total payload are too much for C5.

Here in Italy i have not chance to compare the performaces with other users, so i does not know if my C5 runs as it should.

I attached an ammeter to the battery, and i seen it arrives to 35A when the vehicle runs on a little climb ...

Hi Alex,

I'm the same weight as you and have the same issue when it comes to hills I have just been out on the C5 and new battery (I have only just got the C5 up and running this week) but if i gotta pedal i will pedal ;)
