An ebikes peak controller amperage rarely gets mentioned...why?

Not just the reviews on EBR, almost none of the online reviews or even the manufacturers marketing info mentions what an ebikes controller peak amperage is. This is key information in determining what the motors peak wattage output will be (V x A=pW) . The controller is the flood gate between the battery and the motor and usually the component most susceptible to heat related issues. Those Bafang builds running 750w BBS02's at 52v/30A are actually pushing 1560w. Controller design and peak amperage are vital info that gets little consideration from buyers
