        I've built an electric motorcycle and am using 42, 60 amp/hr CALB lithium batteries in a 144 volt series pack. I would like to increase my range, so am considering a higher energy density pack. Being as battery packaging in a two wheeler is more challenging than in a car, the construction using small cells lends itself to more suitable options for a bike. The question is: do you have or are you planning to offer kits for the new 2170 format batteries? I've noticed that the battery packs from Tesla Model 3 are becoming available on ebay. Not cheap, but they are available and with a higher energy density than the 18650 cells.

This is something we've explored, but right now there just isn't enough variety or availability of 2170 cells on the market. As they become a more common option and demand increases, we plan to offer a 2170 compatible Vruzend kit though.

This is a great question. I bet the 2170 format will be widely available within 2-3 years and (even better) cell prices will likely come down. Will keep an eye out for the Vruzend kit for this.  Would probably be a big seller. 🙂
