Hey guys! I hope you’re all doing well right now and having a great time!
I’m currently planning out my 12s battery (2p or 4p depends on the cells) and doing a lot of research on the topic, which gave me a lot of confusion…
My current set-up is:
Motors: Dual 6374 170kv
VESC: Focbox Tenka
And also, I think of using 200mm all-terrain wheels (pretty much the same as on mountain boards) Problem number one – the choice of the batteries:
While researching that, I’ve narrowed down my choice to 3 batteries
- Samsung 40T 21700– (which technically is better at everything and is apparently cheaper than 30Q)
- Samsung 30Q 18650
- Samsung 25R 18650
Can you give me any sort of advice on which ones would be better to use in my case? And if I’m going to be using 40T, should the battery be 2p or 4p? Because I’ve found a wonderful set of videos on battery building by Dr. E Skateboard – he makes 2p out of 21700.
And problem number two (as mentioned above), I’m unsure how many cells should I go in parallel with – 2p or 4p. I’ve read that going with more can be pointless in some cases, so I’m unsure whether it’s my case or not…
