So first, a little introduction: I plan to build my first eSk8 build using Trampa motor mount for Caliber II, a SK3 149Kv motor from Hobbyking and a VESC V4.12. For the battery I have been lurking on the internet for a bit of time and I found that’s its kinda difficult to source for a decent price here in Canada, it often involve buying from US or Asia and since Li Ion are classified as “HazMat” the carrier take a comfortable amount of money to carry the cells. And as a DIY enthusiast and an Electronic technician in real life I feel confident enough to build my own battery pack.
So my question is the following: I plan on recycling used cells from laptop batteries as it’s often good quality cells and it brings down a lot of the cost, It might be hard to find the exact same brand for 36 cells so as far as i keep using cells that are the same capacity is it OK if it’s not the same brand? I will charge my 12S with 2 6S balance charger so I wont use a BMS.
I hope this is not too much of a wall of text This community is awesome keep up the great work!
Edit: I didn’t mention it but of course I’ll use 18650 cells.
