You can use a 48 V battery on 37 V OHM e-bike systems, if the system is using CanBus communication. Depending on the model, a 48 V battery can increase the battery range by about 20% (8,8 Ah model). In any case an appropriate power supply has to be purchased with every 48 V battery. Unfortunately I²C systems are not compatible with 48 V batteries. The compatibility of the battery and the docking station always needs to be verified.
