Currently I’m deciding between 2 batteries. Im almost certain my enclosure can fit a 12s3p and it can guaranteed fit a 10s3p, but sadly not a 10s4p . I’m not going to be doing any uphill runs or going at super high speed as its a board for carving but I want to get as much range as possible out of my board and stuff as many batteries in it as possible. I’ve read a lot that 12s batteries can stress the components of a VESC (Im using the Flipsky 6.6 dual) and I was wondering if I could have a 12s3p but still program my VESC to pull the same amount of power as if it were a 10s battery. I assume that I would be pulling less current from each cell and therefor would get more range out of the pack while reducing voltage sag at the same time.
Basically can I use a 12s setup to get an extra 6 cells in my setup and increase my range but not power.
Is my thinking right on this?
