Hey guys, I’m a little confused I am in the process of choosing what cells to use to make my 12s4p battery pack in my first diy skateboard
I am going to run 2 200kv 6374 motors through either the new flipsky dual 4.2 vesc with fixed resistors or a flipsky dual 6.6 vesc
I currently have 20 Samsung 20R, batteries right now that I could use that have a 22A maximum discharge current, but they only have 2000mAh capacity
I see that people like to use Samsung 30q batteries that have a nice 3000mAh capacity, but only produce a 15A maximum discharge current
I have a limitless supply of LG M26 cells that I could use as well and make as big of a pack as I want without spending anything, maybe even a 14s4p pack. LG M26 cells have a 2600mAh capacity but a measly 10A maximum continuous discharge current. Would this fair better in my setup at 14S?
I assume that the 20R will experience a worse voltage sag because of the smaller capacity, but I wonder why people use Samsung 30q batteries in high powered setups as they have a smaller discharge current.
What is my best option to power these motors, what are the pros and cons in your opinion of these 3 choices. I am leaning towards the Samsung 30q cells because of popularity, but I would like a better understanding of why they are the go to batteries in the eskate community.
If I made the LG pack, (which is free to me) what issues would I run into?
