My diy tramps with self designed cnced motor mounts and home made 12s spim08hp battery packs
How are the battery packs running? Was going to make a 12s2p for my cruising board but didn’t know if it was worth trying to use the recycled cells.
They are good I used aluminum bars for the series connections in the pack squishing the + and -s together then the same idea but with copper bars with 10 awg wire soldered to it for the actual connection out of the pack.
then I 3d printed a case for the packs of 6s
I stripped a lot of length to maximize the contact of the wire to my bars
I’ve only ruined 1 and it was from being squished between the flaps at the bottom of the box during shipping. And even then it was only when I started putting 12s voltage that it puffed. Other than that I went through my 42 and tested the internal of all them and they’re all pretty much “new”
I will say this though unless your a trained electrician or are loaded up on insurance and don’t care you shouldn’t play with these cells a single one will kill you. The can output almost 350amps on dead short
I will say I am neither a trained electrician nor are loaded up on home insurance so a build using these will be a pipe dream for a while.
But… They are awesome
Now I just need people to ride with…
Where in Ontario are you?
I’m in Belleville.
Oh boy that’s some ways away. I’m over in the GTA. I think Kingston might have some esk8ers.
in the midst of finishing my board
If you feel like coming to mtl hit me up I could get together with atleast 4 other diyers to show you around
