I was watching a battery building youtube, and the amperage allowed per motor was 60. Then, the parallel capability was said to be 120 amps needed. SUSTAINED. I have heard that many set their vescs at 60 amps motor per, and say 40 or so from battery. Is this a safety factor that makes the battery capable of large motors, or should we be able to call for double from our battery?
Lets use an example. 10s5p 10 amp cells. So, 50 amps can be sustained. BUT, 6374s have eightyish amps capability. So, for a safety factor, set vesc to 60 amps to motors each. Then I have seen many set battery to less amps. Say thirty or forty amps.
What is the safe amp draw from battery, to get most out from motors?
What is the most amp draw capability, to have burst say two seconds, not heat battery too much?
I dont intend to ride over 25mph, much, or sustain full throttle up hills.
Also, do I give breathing room, by lowering gear ratio? Does it help a lot? I am between 15 or 16 on motor pulley, and 66 on wheel pulley. 7 inch wheel. It is only a three mph diff.
