Long story short, I have a Boosted V2 and the stock battery pack (21650s, I think) is fairly shot. I’m somewhat aware that the BMS and controller won’t work without the other. Since Boosted has gone tits up and I’m a bit of a DIYer, I’m inclined to rip out all the Boosted electronics and repack the batteries. Maybe mount a secondary battery box on the top of the deck, add some foot pedals, and make this thing a bit more AT than it is now. Might even replace the wheels, but we’ll see. My boosted is the only board I own and this would be my first e-skate build/project, so I’m still in research mode.
Anyways, I wanted to see if anyone else has done anything like this or has any thoughts and do a little planning first. I’m thinking this should be pretty straight forward if I reuse the ribbon wires running under the grip tape to connect the motors (I’m assuming those don’t need to be replaced if I swap controllers). Money is tight these days, so I’m trying to reuse what I have already without spending too much more. I can eat the cost of a VESC/controller and 12S BMS, but I can’t swing a new board right now.
