Newbie here, please go easy on me
RideRiptide released a new extended range board, the R1X, along with the option to purchase the battery to upgrade an existing R1 or R1E. I know the Chinese parts on this board aren’t the best (except for wheels and deck), but the current battery just sucks and I’d like to upgrade it.
The new battery is a 6s4p/10AH/212Wh with the Samsung 25R cells (not sure if R2 or R5)
They priced the pack at $299 which I think is overpriced. (Meepo’s 295Wh Sanyo pack is $255) Does anyone here build custom packs? What would something like this cost to build?
They claim double the range (makes sense since the old 6s3p battery was rated at 97Wh). How does the voltage sag on these cells compare to the Sanyo GA cells? What about expected life (charge/discharge cycles)?
