Yeah man, shipping lithium batteries from China is expensive
I should get final dimensions on Wednesday and arriving next Friday.
Here is what they are starting to look like:
I see sharp edges
wuts the dimensions? that looks really big.
It’s big because they flattened it out so the BMS is not on top of the Samsung cells.
Dimensions are great for my enclosure:
(12 x 6 x 2.5 inch Aluminum enclosure)
Dimensions: 232 x 138 x 40/mm 9.1 x 5.4 x 1.5/inch
I can’t wait for the Longggggg range.
Man that is the perfect size, shape, and range for my board… I’d definitely be interested in one
I’ll keep ya posted. Should arrive Friday or early next week.
They are on the way, here is the final picture of the product completed, with the 4A chargers
let us know how much the total cost was with shipping + (hopefully no) duties
Who is making them?
Samsung 35E are definitely suitable for esk8 – in depths of 8P or deeper
if the picture is right than matrix, which is the producer for eskating.eu too as far as i read
Matrix as the sticker shows. Unfortunately, yes I had to pay customs clearance and tax which is about 1/3 the cost of the battery
im curious how much this battery is shipped
$212 including 4A charger, (shipping/customs/tax is about $53 of that) i bought 3 total and ran them through my business account in order to get them shipped to me.
It was about $35 less per pack if I went with generic Matrix branded batteries, but I wanted genuine Samsung 30Q’s, and they were custom built for me, not on shelf, so paid a bit extra.
If they turn out well, and it looks from the pictures they are very good quality and well made, well padded and laid out, I may do a monster order for everyone and a few different layout configurations.
It sure as hell beats paying $249 for a 10s2p from some of the eskate vendors and that’s without a battery LCD display and w/o fast charger.
I think I negotiated quite a good deal with the vendor compared to their listed prices: https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/36V-8ah-8-8ah-9Ah-10s3p_60772224603.html?spm=a2700.galleryofferlist.normalList.12.3b3036aerBjPoT
i think you did too. im interested in that 12s5p battery. curious what they’d let that go otd for.
Just edited the above (non Samsungs were about $35 less, not $25). Let’s see how these battery packs turn out and if good, we’ll get a group buy going.
10s3p and 12s5p both $290.99… hmmmmm
Let us know how its going… I am interested in a 10s3p battery samsung… with charge % indicator, charging port and switch…
