So I just took my board out for a 10 mile ride, about 9.5 miles in the VESC battery cut out came on as expected and I pushed the last half a mile back home. It was a very windy day and the board was working hard uphill on the way there and down hill slightly on the way back.
When I got back to put the lipos on a storage charge they gave some really weird values with one cell being at 4.17V and one being at 2.82! This didn’t make much sense to me as all the cells in the pack run in series right? I’d assume that they all would run down relatively evenly. My only thought is that when I push back only one cell got charged? It was the last cell in my 10s pack. Is it possible to balance them when riding?
My setup is a 5000mah combinations of lipos which I charge as two separate 5s batteries.
3s + 2s in series to make 5s with another 3s + 2s or the second. The first 5s was fine voltage wise the second was all over the place.
Any thoughts or help would be appreciated.
