Looking to pick your brains on this while waiting for Dave’s recommendation.
The 12s3p battery pack in question is from @oriol360 / MiamiElectric. Because I usually ride/test in 10 mile increments, I know this build has under 100 miles on it. Recently I had some issues with the battery turning off under harder acceleration or on a small incline, same route I always take from the home to office. The board would just not accelerate anymore, the LCD would be off, power button still in on position. A restart and the board would work again until I go a bit faster.
I swapped out the antispark switch, that didn’t resolve it. @psychotiller took a look at the battery and didn’t really see any physical problems, but he helped change the BMS to charge only. Today I finally had time to test it out after that change. Took it slow because I really didn’t wanna street my face before work.
Average Speed 10mph Max Speed 25.1mph Distance 6.3 miles Starting Battery: 98% Ending Battery: 46%
After the ride, I discovered a hot spot in the battery pack with my thermal camera, looks to be a P group that’s hotter than the rest of the pack. Motor temp seems to be fine
After getting back into the office I checked again, and the battery is cooling down, but now I’m not sure I should plug it in
