I’m sure his findings are reasonable, I’m just not the type to push my batteries past what the manufacturer has rated them. I’d prefer to keep as many cycles as I can get out of my cells and also keep the fire hazard at a minimum.
But I can also understand those who want to live on the edge
However the mooch test show only 83C (very safe) after discharging at 20A continuous vs 77C of the 25R.
I had my oldest board with more than a year of continuous use and the battery is holding the charge exactly the same as day one, well maybe not the same, but nothing I can detect without instruments, so I think we should be less concerned about longevity and more about having a blast riding our boards at their fullest 20A per cell!
ooo I can just fit 12s5p in this thing if I can snip that white plug off the unboxed-focobx beside the phase wires. If I were to dremel it down slowly but not cut into the board you think that would be ok? sounds ridiculous but wait till you see this! using all copper sheet connections since the wires take up space. even have to cut down my xt90 plug. it all will just fit…but that one white plug. I’ll post up a pic soon. fantastic. really syched to do all copper foil welded pack and then the foil replacing the phase wires, rolled up where it needs to be.
maybe that works. less sag. butt rider has good ideas. more overall amp draw from the cells but now 5 instead of the 4 to deal with that draw
but 12s5p wins for sure!! juuuust will fit problem solved wheres that solution button. damn I cant post questions and then award myself solutions
