So I built a electric longboard not too long ago, with 2 3c 5000mah lipos, dexter’s single motor kit, a 190kv motor as well as a QuicRun WP 8BL150 esc. There is a few things that I’m not to fond of. One being inconvenience. The lipos are a pain, a cheap well performing pain. The charging is what annoys me the most. I use my board as transportation, and fun of course. But when you have to discharge them when you are not using them for more that 48 hours and that 100-200 cycle count hurts. So I plan on moving to a lithium ion battery, a 36v 10a one. Not sure what needs to change in my setup for that to happen. Also the terrain where I live is rather harsh. (it’s one of those roads where there is just a bunch of pebbles infused together with some tar.) So the 83mm that dex has which I don’t know the “A” rating or whatever the terminology is, feels pretty rough.
Now the changes… I need some opinions on these changes though.
New deck, maybe blank full bamboo deck, that should help rough roads?
New wheels that can fit dexter’s motor kit, that have a low “A” rating for more smoothness
New battery, Lithium ion 36v 10. For more range. Can’t have too much range and whatever changes need to be made, assuming that the esc needs the change. But all the escs I looked for always have compatibly with how-ever-many cells of lipos and nimhs, but never say anything about lithium ions :’(
So if you guys can help me that would be fantastic. Cheers!
