Yeah I’m looking into top mount. The bms was the real limiter. So what’s the factor that sets the continuous rating needed? Is it the motor combined with what voltage the battery is determining regular amp draw?
In theory you would need as much as your motor needs. More is always better to limit voltage sag. If you would go 10s5p 30q, would get 75a continuous.
For single drive 10s3p 30q is good, 10s2p is acceptable but big sag, low range and less battery life.
So bare with me here :
Motor is 65A, rated for 60A. That battery I listed is outputting 75A continuous (they claim its Samsung LG or Panasonic) but the BMS only supports 20A. So is it only acceptable for low wattage motors that can’t pull that many Amps?
