New battery pack build.....25R, 30Q or VTC6?

So it's time for a new pack and pretty sure I'm ready to order next week. So if I can choose from 25R, 30Q or VTC6 which way would I want to go. I read and read and always end up confused. When I compare the cells it doesn't really end up a fair comparison since I'll buy the cells to get the amps I ...

Re: Solder longevity on nickel

I agree....iron not hot enough and a little extra mechanical bonding can be achieved if you sand the area your going to solder.

Re: GrayK's Cyclone Powered Norco A-Line

Looks great. For me being 6'4" tall I'm not sure I'd ever fit with the batteries there. When I built my Giant DH Team I put lipo in a Pelican case on the front forks and I can tell you that 24s lipo at 20 amps sux on the forks. I think your way will ride way better.

Enjoy the build.

Re: How many cells into this frame?

The frame size hasn't changed just the belled out covers. I used hot glue.

Re: How many cells into this frame?

Realistically you can fit about 450 with some room for wires and connections. I had 360 in mine at one time. Not saying you couldnt shoe horn up to possibly 500 but it would be awkward at best with (4-5?) multiple separate packs. I used the side cover spacers to make mine about 1" wider so my cells ...

Re: Mxus Spareparts? does they exist?

Just for curiosity, I looked in all the various subsections of that site, and there are no covers separately available on that site, so why recommend it?

Re: 18650 spot welding -how to- ULTIMATE REPOSITORY

I have a 800ws CD welder and with .3 mm I can definitely feel it when welding. I have all huge cables and use glidcop electrodes from sunstone. I personally think that over .2mm is kinda a waste used with a properly designed pack. I'll betcha just going to glidcop would make all the difference you n...

Re: Adaptto Mini-E/Max-E Owner's Thread

What Buk___ said is exactly right. You can charge or discharge a "P" row and cycle to find out what's going on. You have to pull the connections to find out which cell is bad in the "P" row though.

Good luck.
