I have a Truncated Tesseract as a commuter with a 10S5P Li-Ion battery impulse-purchased from diyeboard.com. It’s a bit much for a 3km commute, esp when I have to put it on my pack and also carry my 4 year old son home on my shoulders at the end of the day (good for fitness though!).
I considered modding the pack by making it a 10S3P but I was a little too honest about the dangers of doing so when telling my wife about it (lesson learned). I tried ordering the 10S3P pack from diyeboard.com but they say that their courier now doesn’t ship batteries to New Zealand.
So rather than spend a lot of money buying a pack and paying ridiculous shipping charges, I decided to try and make my 10S5P rig sexy by building a new enclosure.
Current enclosure is 3D printed. It’s all modular (I like modular). Not real keen on 3D printing over night (I need to make my printer safer) so I’m a little limited in the size of the pieces. I should perhaps invest in some time with getting 0.8mm nozzles working.
Anyone got any ideas? Paying for shipping from the US/EU kills me. Thinking of maybe just making a fibreglass enclosure. A kydex (?) enclosure would be nicer but way more $$/risk in f*&king it up.
