Hey guys, I’m new here so let me know if this is in the wrong place or something.
So I have decided that I need a new board; I had a Meepo Campus 2 for a year now and she’s been fantastic, but I think it’s time for an upgrade. So I decided I wanted a Meepo Mini 2 ER because it can go 20 miles (range) and 29 mph, and it’s compact. But the thing is pretty expensive, so I did a bunch of research and decided to build my own. The Meepo ER battery is a 10s2p battery with Samsung 21700 40T cells and it has a 60A discharge current. (I’m not an expert on the numbers) Problem is, it’s 300 bucks.
So I’ve decided to make my own. I’ve done my research and I know how to assemble the battery and everything. On Liion wholesale I’ve secured the cells for around 150 bucks, and the rest of the supplies I need to construct the battery pack on amazon. However I’m still a little iffy on the compatibility of the electronics. My greatest concern is that I have a sinking feeling that maybe this choice of BMS or ESC will limit the power that the battery can supply to my motor, decreasing speed, power, or worse: range.
Will this BMS allow the battery to operate to its full potential, will it limit the battery/performance, or will it not allow the board to function at all? Will the ESC or Motor choice limit the board’s performance? Do you guys see any red flags with my equipment? Do you have any warnings or advice?
My goal is to make a functional board that can go 20 miles or more. Speed isn’t as important, but being able get to 29 like the Meepo Mini ER would be nice.
Thanks in advance! I really appreciate any feedback!
