I’m in Brisbane, building esk8 battery packs in my off-season. I will continue indefinitely, just a little slower in the summer. Currently taking expressions of interest for the next batch of cells, which I will order soon. lots of 30Q’s and maybe a few others. Below are some photos of my current orders. happy to do Evolve upgrades or custom specs for a DIY build.
10s4p 30Q is $440AUD. 10s5p 30Q is $490 12s5p 30Q is $575
Bestechpower BMS are available. Unfortunately, shipping and exchange rate stung pretty hard. 10s 80A $85 12s 80A $96 10s 40A(for charge only setup) $45 if you prefer another bms that’s all good. just let me know so I can put the right plug on for you. I’ll have the spec sheets up soon
Fitting, shipping or extra work will add a few dollarydoos. Other sizes available, inquire within.
Build details. after a lot of research on nickel strips and their amp ratings, this is what I’ve settled on. For the middle series connection, I use four strips of 10x.02mm with a smaller strip for the parallel. Outside will have 10 or 12 AWG copper wire soldered onto the middle of the parallel connection - two layers of 10x0.15. I’ve also done a lot of test welds to make sure that I can get through both layers and the cell with each tap to ensure a strong, long lasting weld.
Balance wires are 26awg. I can crimp jst terminals/plugs on there. Evolve compatible balance plug is available. Charge wires are 20awg
Choice of power connector. Deans T style for Evolve or XT60 (or whatever you fancy)
*Update - Round one Complete. Round two - cells arrived Round three - cells Arrived Taking names for the next order. eta mid September
