Hi Everyone, I am fat - 240LBS. I am losing weight, but it is slow and I want to ride my board as far as possible. So, I want to add a battery from meepo. The board I have ordered is the sanyo one. So here is my parts list:
Meepo SANYO BATTERY PACK 20700B
x2 Meepo FOAM PADS
Meepo Battery Extension Cord
Meepo Battery Enclosure
Parallel Y-Harness for Two Batteries - XT60 Connector 16AWG
BNTECHGO 12 Gauge Silicone Wire Ultra Flexible 10 Feet high temp 200 deg C 600V 12 AWG Silicone Wire 680 Strands of Tinned Copper Wire Stranded Wire Model Battery Cable Black and Red Each Color 5 ft
XT60 Male Female Connector Cable with Sheath Housing Connector with 100mm 12AWG Silicon Wire for RC Lipo Battery FPV Drone ESC (4 pcs)
Bamboo Skateboards Longboard 44" x 9.5" Pintail
So the way I take is this. Get a longer board. Run an extension cable from the ESC, maybe make my own with the 12 AWG. Splice the BMS together, use the Y parallel cable to connect the two batteries, and it is pretty much done as far as wiring goes?
Being that I am a bigger dude, 240 5’10 - I am worried about the deck. I think 44inches should be long enough, but I am worried about clearance… I would like a drop through deck, but maybe a Pintail top mount is best with my weight?. I need rigid and I worry bamboo might flex too much. I would appreciate any suggestions.
I like the bigger 12awg, should I go for that totally? Or would 14 or 16 awg be acceptable?
I have attached my crude wiring drawing. Any suggestions are welcomed!
