Dont mean to hijack this thread but came across 20, 20r cells for pretty much free and though to why not use them.
what would be an optimal setup for these batteries.
Have never done a 18650 pack but have read a fair amount.
I am using one VESC and pulling no more then 25 amps from the battery with the motor max at 40 amps.
the motor is the tancon 245kv.
I am around 145lbs (65kg)
I currenlty have a 6s lipo battery 5000mah.
Should I try a 5s4p or get more voltage and go for a 10s2p? I understand that I would get more range with a 5s4p setup but would get 21v. Im guessing the higher voltage just reduces the amount of amps needed?
If I go with a 10s2p I have 42 volts and less range a 4000mah but I would need less amps? so then I would drain the battery slower using less amps.
Please correct my knowledge and feel free to comment.
