Looking for more hill climbing power than I could get from my 10s2p with 26650 Lions(it works great on flat ground)
This new project is a 10s1p using Turnigy 2s/5000mah/60c hard packs from Hobby King
5 Packs wired in series is smaller and 2lb lighter than the Lion pack!
I used these jst extension wires to extent the balance wires to the bms:
omitting the black ground wire and using only the pos wires from cell 1 and 2 of each pack.
I did this instead of hard wiring to allow for easier testing and replacement of individual cells
I attached the packs to the deck with servo tape.
Wait sorry if I misunderstood, but the lipos are 10S 5000mah? And they’re in series? Wouldn’t that mean they are 50S 5000mah? I obviously don’t think that’s what you are trying to do so I just kinda assumed it’s 10S 25a?
There are 5 packs in series. Each pack is a 2s/5000mah/60c
So its a 10s1p 5ah 300a discharge.
You may ask, Why in the world would anyone need a battery with 300a discharge?
Point is, very little or no voltage sag when accelerating or climbing hills.
When voltage sag is greatly reduced, You can take the pack lower without tripping the low voltage protection.
And less capacity is needed.
The true discharge capability of this battery is more like 90a, NOT 300a.
If you conecting battery in series the discharge is counting same as Ah? Only voltage doubles.
5x 2s 5000mah 60c in series = 10s 5000mah 60c?
Max amps at 10s (36v) :
60c x 5000mah ÷1000= 300a
Or in paralles capacity and discharge doubles?
5x 2s 5000mah 60c in parallel= 2s 250mah 300c?
Max amps at 2s (7.4v) :
300c x 5000mah ÷1000= 1500a
Am I wrong?
Hey, really cool build. Very inspired and wantt to do something similar. Is it possible that you could make a diagram of what you did? I recently joined the community and have been reading a lot to figure out how the BMS works and what not but can’t quite understand how you set this up. (I understand the series connections but not the BMS part)
I’m with you on this one. wanting to buy Turnigy 5000mah 2s 20c, but no idea (at least, its 3am where I live my brain might be fried) how to increase cap with those batt packs and increase its voltage?
