If your just building the one battery I can ship you my boss spot welder and then you can ship it back when your done.


isn’t evo too small for 12s8p, u ganna need some risers.

Double stack and pneumatics broski :wink:


With 6 shooters he should have plenty if clearance.


I guess double stack will solve the issue

thanks man i appreciate that, but for the price i want to buy it cause i do plan to make more batteries in the future, i love the idea that i can create pretty much any powered vehicle. Like my buddy has these old electric scooters that use lead acid batteries we want to make Li on batteries for those too lol.


That’s why I got one. I’ve got a Segway No scoiter I need to make a pack for.


@mmaner, let’s have a battery build party! It is the best! This weekend? Next?!?

Sorry, back on topic.

This thing sounds monstrous!

It is a blast learning about building batteries, definitely grab a spot welder so you always have it around… lurking… begging you to start your next project…

I never regret buying tools. Ever. This is an AMAZING tool. I have spent way more on things that have delivered way less, and still was happy with the purchase. If you build ONE solid battery, it pays for itself.

Or you could burn your house down. Or your entire building in my case (old, early 1900s loft building).

But sooooo worth it.


Finally my 6 shooters have shipped! Alot of parts should start coming in very soon,


Been trying to find a good bms but cant really find one that does 120amp continuous plus I’m not 100% sure on my size constraints until I have my enclosure made, should I bypass bms and use for charge only? I really wanted to use a bms with a built in switch.

Hmmm have you looked at bestech?

I’m not a discharge BMS guy… more so a bypass man. I think you might be better off with bypassing with the current draws you likely will use.

I was thinking I may have to bypass cause of space requirements.

It has begun.

First of many parts, many of which will arrive Saturday including my mounts and pullies.


You need to have it finished by June 30th, that’s when I’ll be in Miami :grinning:. I’m still trying to figure which board I should ship down…

oh man i doubt ill have this board finished in a month, the battery and the enclosure will be the most time consuming parts and i have not even started on those yet lol

but i will have stuff i can ride. I still have my Raptor 1 but im selling the Raptor 2 if its not sold by the time you come ill just keep it but id rather sell it to advance this project a little quicker.
