Here is my Boosted Board battery Extension. The goal here is to have reversible modifications that don’t require to drill or modify the ESC enclosure, and not worry about using a second charger, but just continue charging the board with the original charger.
- Extend the Capacity of the original 99 Wh Battery up to 350 Wh.
- Keep design as water resistant / splash proof as possible
This transforms the 4 Miles range which is now 12 Miles. (160 pounds / San Francisco hills / a lot of start/stop). Tell me what you think about it, and I’m open to suggestions !
UPDATE: Right now I’m looking into designing a more long term casing, and adding a water tight enclosure. I was thinking about using some kind of vacuum bag to protect from water and dust, that I could then recover using 3D printed shock absorbers.
