I’m currently building my first ever beefy electric longboard. One of the things that I’m curious about is the batteries. I’m looking at Multistar HV 14.8v 16ah batteries v.s. your generic 18650 pack. I’ve heard that the Lipos don’t last as long, but they give more of a boost. The 18650s are used by almost all name brand boards, last a lot longer, but don’t provide as much of a punch. Is that true. So far, I’m finding that a 18650 is going to run me more money (unless I build my own which I’ve no idea how to).
Basically, which one is better. I’m not running with a BMS so I’ll need a larger capacity (my original design was 950wh, but another was 500wh). Thanks for the input in advance.
