There are ways around the complexities but the end user has to.. i repeaat.. HAS to learn about the specifics.. some people do not, and are not willing, or able to do this. for those people a Ping makes perfect sense.
What are the best choices for a beginning LiPo kit, as regards charger, power supply, balancers, etc.? I am not too intimidated to consider going this route, but there is clearly much
more to learn. I will now go research pack construction, but what would you all recommend for # of cells to power a 36V/48V DD motor, and what kind of controller would then be necessary?
As usual, my intention isn't to avoid the research. Although it is eating up huge amounts of my time. I am thoroughly addicted to the process already, but I am starting from the bottom tech wise, especially with electronics.
