Hey everyone! I need some help here maybe just explaining some things to me, so I am looking to the Hive Mind for filling in some gaps of my elementary understanding of electric vehicals.
First I cannot get my battery to charge past the 39.8v Is this the upper limit or is there something wrong with the balancing or are the individual cells unbalanced? I read all of them with a multimeter before I welded it all up and they were the same voltage at assembly. Or is this just normal operation?
My second question: is there any way I can increase my range?
Now I have ridden the board a few times and she works GREAT! I love it! So much response and power and it just accelerates like crazy, but it cuts out right at 9.5 kilometers. Here is my latest test ride. I stayed close because I ended up pushing the last kilometer. (also I stopped and grabbed a drink at Quick Trip on KM 4 and 5 to explain the time change)
and here is the voltage at then end No Throttle
When I hit the throttle
My batteries are Samsung 18650s 25R
My BMS is this one that @Namasaki sold me. (THANK YOU IT’S WORKING AMAZING!)
Thanks to anyone who offers me some insight and maybe explains some things I don’t quite understand about current draw to me because I just made things without fully understanding what I’m doing.
Also as a thanks. Here is my “Boosted Clone” we are talking about.
