      Hi Rick
      I am guessing that you were including me; anyway a rough figure is $1.20/ Amphour, so if you decide what size cell, 40,60,...100 Amphour multiply $ 1.2 times the Amphour times the number of  cells which in your case would be 48 for a 160v pack. You could probably go higher than 48 cells if you wanted. Mine was a 144v pack and I went to 160v but my controller will not let me go any higher.

      Mike, I am thinking about a lithium conversion for my 1996 force. It is a 156 volt system. Can you give me a ballpark on costs and range for your conversion? Real rough is fine.
      Thanks.

      > Since going on three years with my 48 40Ah cells in my '92' Force I can say that when the temperature is above 70 degrees there is no noticeable sag especially with the loss of weight from the Pb. But since price was a major concern when I bought them, if I bought them today I'd probably go bigger just because of the termperature differential and the associated sag otherwise I don't really need the range either. So I would suggest you go with what you can afford.
