I hope this is the right place to post. This is my first time. I just purchased a riptide elite and I would like to expand my run time. I figured I can just put another pack or two in parallel to the existing one. I would us the same 6S3P 24 volt pack but i’m not sure if I should buy theirs or build my own. I want this to be an easy swap battery. I also would like charging to be simple. Maybe even chard all packs at the same time.
I would use an xt60 splitter in front of the existing battery pack.
What I don’t know is how this would affect charging.
- Would I need to charge them separately?
- do I need to plug in the pack when the board is on or does that not matter
- Do I need to remove the extra battery before turning off the board
I know the pack that comes with the board has a BMS built in but I do not know where the turn of switch activates. It looks like if I split the XT60 the power off switch is after so I should be fine to turn the board on and off without having to add or remove the battery etc.
Anyone have any ideas. Here are a few more pics of the electronics in the board.
