How to calculate range?

I want to calculate the range that I will get(:slightly_smiling_face: Thanks a lot, Ron

You need: Your weight + the board Battery watt hours Motor efficiency Any hills <-- this site will help you. Roughly speaking 10Wh=1km but all the variables matter as well as what you consider ‘safe’ cut off voltage.

I run 185Wh (2 5Ah 5S in series to make 10S 5Ah) and get about 20km (12 miles) on flat ground (Chicago) and being a light dude (around 120lbs) before my batteries are down to around 3.5V per cell (LiPo)

totally depends on setup and weight.

i get about 13km with 10S3P about 280Wh i weigh 200 pounds.

Not just that it’s how you ride too there is a big range different when I’m hauling ass and when I’m cruising.

I get 18-20miles range riding fast and hard. I get 27-30miles just derping around.

Yup agree ride style+weight+elevation changes all make a difference (not to mention electrical efficiency/losses between/within components)

I found messing with the gear ratio < 2 restricts range/life

esk8 range calc says with 10S3P 288Wh with dual drive 30wh/km i get 15.8km.

i get 13-14 think thats pretty accurate

30Wh/km?? What the hack kind of riding are you doing? 0-50-0 all the time??

Lmao yea right, my Raptor 1 is Dual 6355 with a very Old 10s3p it doesn’t charge to 100% anymore and I still get 10+ miles out of it

I live in baltimore city and do a lot of 0-max a lot. It it is a blast but kills battery life.

Thank you every one! That helped me a lot


Thats per mile, or 1.6km! Seems alot off thought, especially at the higher numbers.

Like, Who the fuck uses 80Wh/mile? Even on 4wd Thats too extreme, unless offroad maybe…

true yeah, but i still just reach around 13-14km

My Evo, 13s5p…

With a cutoff of 3.35/cell, leaves approximately 35-40% charge left in my cells.

My pack is 709Wh calculated at 3.6v nominal.

I can pull 43/44 miles out before the “cuttoff” which still leaves me at 3.38/cell without the sag.

When I charge, it puts in about 440-460Wh back into the pack, meaning I discharge to about 37%

Let’s take the median 450Wh used / 44 miles = ~10.22 Wh/mile.

Or, that’s how I see it on my Evo


Whuuuut.? Thats incredible efficiency!

Two questions… what are your battery cutoff limits? What is your riding style, run and gun, or cruising?

57v max(full charge is 54.6v) 44v cutoff start, 43v cutoff end

I ride like a bat out of hell, I am a speed junkie. I ride street, and regularly keep up with traffic. Lots of run and gun on the street, moderate cruising


That is what I assumed. I love keeping up with traffic, otherwise there is no point. I haven’t run my battery to its end, but based on my last run in my new setup, I figure I will get about 20 miles. I have a 12s4p of 25r (I wish I paid extra and went with 30q). I am also just north of 200 so I know that impacts it as well.
