I am using 6s 10AH lipo, I got about 2hr ride time if I constantly hold 50% - 80% throttle. This could even be further improved with some kick push and occasional neutraling the throttle position (let it cruise).
That’s impressive. I rarely ever got more than an hour out of my 6S 10ah pack, even at 50%. I’ve never used a VESC with that pack though. My 6S upgrade will likely consist of VESC and one of those 12Ah graphene packs.
I get about 90 minutes out of my space cell because i just can’t keep it slower than 10 consistently. Here’s my last range test with a 1:28:43 run time on it. looking at my averages in the splits you can see i was trying to keep it slow but its hard. lol
also this was on a single 6355, vesc, 155 lb rider on a cold and windy day.
Well don’t get me wrong completely, I didn’t stand on my board for complete 2 hours in total but it can reach around 1:45 ish. I ride in Netherlands, we have bike paths which is quite smooth and flat. My weight is also 60kg. Literally kick starting and cruising as much as possible combined with large wheel and ceramic bearings make the difference in time and abit more in distance.
I have been using a 750 watt hour pack for quite awhile now and I honestly never even have to think about how much range or time I have left. I don’t think I can ever go back to anything less. A big battery makes range or ride time a non issue for most riding.
I have been using 2x 8000 mAh zippy batteries is parallel, giving me 16000 mAh of juice running at 6s. However, it is about a 20 mile range or about 2 hours of ride time. Bear in mind, half of that ride has 15- 20% hills. So I’m sure I could get better if I lived where its flat. But San Francisco is the opposite of flat, lol.
Would be good if you make a table in your first entry where you count which setting was used and which result it has. I already see what you are thinking but this table would make it more clear and better to analyse
