Before the summer starts, I have an idea of building my first electric longboard before the fall semester. My goals are to learn more about electronics and wiring as well as have a cool transportation around campus. Fast forward couple months of research and help, I created this longboard.
Specs: 6 compact zippy batteries, 3 in series and 2 in parallel so 9s with torqueboard motor 190 kV 6355. I have NOT go full speed with this thing since I’m 120 lbs and have ZERO experience longboarding but all I can tell you is this thing is fast. Also in this summer I wanted to learn about 3d printing so I got myself an ANET A8 clone from gearbest. I has been the best decision I’ve made in a long time. Anyway I printed some enclosure and hinges and screw it on to the longboard. I want my batteries to lay flat instead of stacking on each other like I have on the picture but my parallel connect isn’t long enough. SO if you got to this part, I have a few questions for you.
Where can I find a reliable BMS for this 9s2p battery that I have?
What charging port and charger do you recommend?
My plan for right now is to make charging easier and also make my longboard waterproof.
