So I am a backer of the ionboard x campaign that was on Kickstarter, long story short they claimed the board was rain resistant and it wasn’t, the first time I took it out in light rain, overnight the ESC corroded. I decided to take matters into my own hands and fix the board myself. I purchased a new and better dual ESC which ended up working as expected, so there are no other issues with the board. Right now I am waiting on the new deck to arrive from skate shred and the enclosure gets here later today from Italy.

After looking at the posted internal dimensions of my enclosure I realize that I could fit a second 10s3p battery if I wanted to (I do!). This battery is practically identical to mine so I was thinking this would work best: http://www.diyeboard.com/10s3p-samsung-lg-18650-lithium-battery-pack-p-631.html
My initial idea was to get an XT60 Y-connector like this one to link both batteries to the ESC in parallel: https://www.ebay.com/p/Xt60-Parallel-Battery-Connector-Cable-Dual-Extension-Y-Splitter/1331395981?iid=322658366759&chn=ps But if I did only that I would be left with 2 seperate charge ports, is there a easy way for me to put both batteries into one charge port for more ease of use? Otherwise, I would just keep it with one 10s3p because I’d rather not have that much hassle, but I really want the extra range.
I will be posting pictures of what I have so far soon and updating the build as I go, I just wanted to get my question out there to figure out what I am doing about the battery.
