I am working on my first built, and interested in feedback for the battery set-up.
My 1,5 year experience is with Wowgo KT and Wowgo Mini hub-motors, 40Amp discharge battery. Mainly riding decent asphalt bicycle roads but also brick pattern street roads in the Netherlands.
Have ordered 58Kv direct drives (Esk8-supply.shop) and Focbox Unity (Massive Stator.com) because I want a more comfortable ride. For wheels the motors come with 110mm black airless rubber AT wheels and I have also ordered 110mm soft 74A urethane wheels (Nexusboard.co.uk) .
I was very reluctant to spent this amount on any board, but gladually slipped down the road upgrading my board and now find it hard to resist to complete this with a matching battery. Was intriguided by the OneWow Black Carve but feel insulted by the outragious prices in the EU.
Preferred goal -as in ‘first-time right’- because this is the moment to do so: I want to being able to utilize full potential torque at low speeds from these DD motors with 110mm wheels (topspeed is not important ).
Minimum requirement: Achieving at least same torque at low speeds as the hub-motors. With Wowgo 40A compared to 120Amp this seems achievable, although so far on the forums and Youtube I have not seen clear evidence of this, the wheel diameter would be the pullcrit. What is your feedback on this?
My riding style is one hour 25km/hr slow rides with constant heavy carving. I am 46, like to lean a lot in the curves but don’t want to break bones. In reality there is still plenty of cruising because of cyclist and dog-owners I have to account for.
Please help me on what battery ?!
So far I came up with: 10s4p - Samsung 40T – 140A Continous – 576Wh / 15 = 38km Https://www.nkon.nl/rechargeable/li-ion/21700-20700-size/samsung-inr21700-40t-4000mah-30a.html
What are your experiences regarding these Direct Drive motors, Focbox Unity and battery setup?
Would love to hear your advise and comments!
