Hi! This is my going to be my first build and I need help deciding on my batteries and charger. I am 125 pounds and want to go ~25 mph with around 10+ miles of range. I already researched most of my parts and need help deciding on batteries (probably LiPos), I read this post by @onloop about batteries and have some idea but can’t decide on what specific batteries I want to use. Here’s the parts, tell me what you guys think:
If you have used these parts before, please share your experience? Budget is ~$850 for deck and electronics!

VESC: Has anyone had problems with Ollin Board’s VESC by @chaka? I’ve heard they are worth the higher price and have and that they have excellent customer service. http://www.ollinboardcompany.com/product/vedder-s-speed-controller
Motor: Again, has anyone had any problems with this? Remote/Reciever: TorqueBoards remote or the Nano-X from Enertion, thought the Enertion remote is more pricey at ~$100 (40 dollars more, worth?). collections/remote-controller/products/torqueboards-2-4ghz-nano-remote-controller

CHARGERS: Can anyone link to single plug charging solutions for batteries connected in series? And how to wire a battery percentage indicator?
