Hello everyone, first and foremost sorry if this has been covered elsewhere already as I imagine it was. However I can’t find it.
So for all of my builds and it’s pretty standard that most of us use battery meters of some sort, whether it be for LiPo/Li-ion batteries. So for LiPo batts, it’s recommended to not ride below roughly 60% to play it safe, and I think a bit lower (like 50% for Li-ion).
This is to help increase the lifetime/cycle of our batteries due to lithium battery chemistry. I just build a diy board for a friend and rather than just telling them not to ride below 60% on the meter, what can be done or can someone point me in the direction of a meter that can factor in this offset? Essentially all I’m asking is if there are any existing solutions to get a battery meter that, let’s just say for LiPo for example turn the usable 40% of the battery and display that as the 0-100%?
I know this is also accounted for in the Vesc software via voltage cutoff limits, but I’m specifically looking for a display representation of what I’ve already mentioned above.
As always, any and all hell is much appreciated, and I’m sorry if this is already covered somewhere else >.< cheers everyone and stay cool out there in those scorchers!
