Directly to the badassBoxes
Which badassBox do I need to make my e-bike faster?
There are two versions of the badassBox for pedelecs with Panasonic mid-motor: The badassBox 4 Panasonic for a conventional mechanical gear-shift , and the badassBox 4 Panasonic Freeze for an electronic gear-shift (e.g. Shimano Di2, Rohloff E-14, NuVinci H-Sync):

I'm not sure...
Don't worry, we weren't born e-bike tuning experts either.
First check where the motor of your e-bike is installed. We only support pedelecs with mid-mounted motor (motor in the crank/pedal area) and motor support up to 25 km/h and 250 watts continuous power, no s-pedelecs (motor support up to 45 km/h) and no hub motors (motor in the area of the front or rear wheel axle).
Other manufacturer or motor?
Please note that we have designed the badassBoxes exclusively for pedelecs with mid-mounted motor and motor support up to 25 km/h and 250 Watt continuous power, not for S-Pedelecs or hub motors.
Unfortunately, firmware updates/upgrades are at the same time also a gateway for their unwanted features, which take away the choice of tuning or limit it.
We therefore recommend our customers not to carry out any upgrades/updates of the motor firmware or have them carried out at present in order to retain the option of selecting the tuning/original state. This applies in particular in connection with workshop work on your e-bike.
