And if theres a better option out there that wont break the bank, Im all ears. Im open to lipo’s but I like the idea of not having to take out my batteries and hook them to a lipo charger every cycle. I want to plug my charger into my board and let it do its thing. So if theres any decent bms’s out there that I can make work with RC lipos, I can handle that as well.
If you want hella cheap cells, look for the packs from batteryhookup
+100000 to this.
Sacrificing weight you can get killer deals on cells with reasonable capacity and discharge. Some work involved sometimes.
@ZachTetra dude those are cheap! thanks for the hook up!
Has anyone used Folkbattery before? I’m looking at this: panasonic-48v-14ah-1000w-13s3p-lithium-ion-battery-pack-for-54-6v-e-bike-electric-bicycle-scooter-with-25a-discharge-bms-charger - It comes with a charger for $118 Any thoughts and will it be enough whack for a first build DIY project?
Dead set on 13S? There are a couple new VESC 6 that supports it
Not dead set on 13S, just looking at value options…any other recommendations otherwise? Which new VESC 6 is it?
I would join the other forum. This one is garbage and abandoned.
For cheap battery options depending on where you live can’t beat batteryhookup.com
Thanks for the help. On Betteryhookup there’s this…36v 5.1ah 183.6wh SCOOTER PACK WITH BMS × 1 How much mileage and speed might one of these give me? Is it worth getting two and joining them up?
When you join the forum not owned by someone hiding because they failed at their job and owe us lots. You will find an Esk8 calc they will answer that question.
Two of those would make a good esk8 battery though you should get 10+ miles.
