I was one of the unlucky guys that bought an FOC BOX early and had the “wrong resistor” issue. I found out late but Enertion sent me a replacment for it, which i received yesterday. I haven’t programmed/used it yet but will soon. I thought I’d share some pics and some thoughts about it. First and foremost it looks beautiful in black and with the logo embossed into the case. Really nice.
It has a nice XT60U-M connector, which is a nice touch as well.
But here is where things get strange. First the motor leads are 14awg. I like 12 to 10 awg. Not a big deal as i can solder some on myself but I wonder why 14awg was chosen when the original FOCBox i had was 10awg i think. Not a big deal.
Last, there are 4mm bullet connectors on the 14awg motor leads. Round here we, or at least i like to roll with 5.5mm on my bullets but i guess 5.5mm bullets would look strange on 14awg leads. Again, no big deal as I have spare connectors i can use. Just curious as to why these choices were made when the original one i had wasn’t this way.
Regardless of the motor lead and bullet connector differences, I am excited to finally have a working FOCBOX and am eager to bust some amps through this thing and love the new look. Anyone else have an FOCBOX like this ?
