I just bought a dead mountainboard with a bad battery for parts from a defunct random manufacturer “electric rides” in Florida.
It came with a 36V battery pack that was down to 0.4V inside so I understand that it’s dead and those cells are all scrap now.
I’ve got four 40V removable batteries I use with my other board so I’m trying to determine if I can connect them to this new board at full charge without frying anything—unfortunately I don’t have any clue what these ESCs are. Is it something anyone recognizes that might be configurable?
I’ve got a regular street (polyurethane wheel) board that I’m using a flipsky VESC where I can control all the parameters but this this is a bit of a mystery. My “worst case” scenario is that I just use the two VESCs from my other board or buy a nice new dual VESC but I’d love to see if I could get anything going so I can evaluate if I even like this board mechanically. That’s obviously not that bad of a worst case scenario and probably what I will do eventually but even if I order a suitable ESC today it’ll be a while before it’s at my door.
I know the low voltage cutoff on the ESCs would be low enough to damage the 40V batteries but otherwise the worst I can do is fry the generic ESCs I wanted to replace anyway?
