I was surfing the internet for good 18650’s when I came across this
At a staggering 3.256 wh/dollar, it seems a bit too good to be true compared to Sam. 30Q’s 2.611 wh/dollar. Output current seems really good for a low profile rider. Have any of you guys tried this cells, or am I going to take the first dip?
Also, I found this which seems to have a bit of discrepancy from IMR
The discharge is really low on those. 6.5 continuous while 30q is 15 or 20a… thats the problem.
I am planning on building a 10s5p pack with these which would give me a max of only 1kw but reaching 610wh of range. Range is something I look more forward to than speed(at least 25mph ).
I guess… I still like the 30qs…
Then use MJ1 or 35E
You found a new? lower cap, lower discharge cell
A 10S6P with Panasonic NCR18650PF will give you a better battery that’s 44% cheaper
You said you wanted range not speed, nothing about cost, so that’s what I replied to
I’ll make myself more accurate. I am the highest wh/$ cells.
Don’t need to be more accurate, just accurate
Currently the Panasonic NCR18650PF is the winner, as-of the pricing update yesterday
I bought 14 or something stupid 2.3Ah 4S lipos for $43
lipo’s are too risky and have high capacity degredation.
They have more strict cycling rules: don’t recharge until 20% and don’t discharge until 80% for long cycles, put cells at 50% for longterm storage, thinner packaging, more sensitive to temperatures, and in general have a higher tendency to explode.
Any restrictions on when I can and cannot plug the charger in makes an esk8 practically worthless to use as a “tool” versus as a “toy”
They have almost the same tendencies as Li-Ion. Lithium makes problems no “Poly”, plus 12 cells are way better on fire that 190 of them…
Sure, but tell me why no esk8 manufacturers use lipo.
evolve use, but mostly cause there is no ideal size cells to use, and order custom size is a problem.
Oh wait they do, but they have performance problems which lead to people here wanting 18650 moded packs.
edit: Sike, they don’t.
