I really want to thank the community so far for all of their help, especially the very vigilant and consistent ones who have replied to each of my threads asking for help.
I’m a complete novice when it comes to electrics and I’ve done some reading and landed myself with a bunch of questions. Since I like to be certain before I commence I have bestowed these questions onto you.
My questions are numbered and progress down the diagram I’ve put at the bottom (inspired by a post on the ‘Beautiful Diagrams’ topic):
I haven’t checked in person if this is possible but can I connect my batteries in series as displayed with the connectors attached to them + some heat shrink or do I need to build a series connector like the one you see on DIYskateboard.com? I don’t have a charge port and will look to take out the batteries from their enclosure to charge them separately.
For anti-spark switch, I was planning to build one similar to @sl33py’s post using an anti-spark XT-90 loop key. Is my placement of this correct? I would connect and disconnect the two pieces to turn the board on and off respectively, is my thinking correct here?
Will my battery meter get fried? my batteries are 8Ah 30C Lipos. If so, how can I improve this?
At the moment, my diagram just shows the wires to connect everything but no actual connectors. Where and what connectors should I use? Are there any points I should solder the connections? Keep in mind I need to be able to take the batteries out of the circuit easily to charge them.
Is there anything I haven’t considered?
Thank you all so much!
