Hyena, sorry for not responding,, I don't remember getting an email.. I am still running 18s lipo. All of my top speeds were measured with a garmin 201 GPS. On a full charge I can get over 40 with the timing boost, which kicks in at about 35mph. I found that my range goes out the window with the timing boost, I have to be careful not going over 35mph on long trips.
Fizzit, good luck with your build! I'll keep an eye out for it.
The latest setback has been my charger. My Hyperion EOS0610i bit the dust a week ago. I contacted a few people and found that I can get a 40% discount on a new EOS0615i, which is 360w compared to 250w.
In the mean time I spent $26 on two PC power supplies and wired em up in series to make a 1150w 24v power supply to power my new charger. A similar charger runs $225. My charger runs on either 12v or 24v, but I figured it would be more efficient at 24v.
The final unit is 13x7" and the output measures 25.2v. If I put the leads of my multimeter on each power supply, I get 12v between the two. I haven't touched it yet, and I don't know if it will shock me if I touch it. There's a guide on hooking up two power supplies in series here
I cut some pegboard to mount the power supplies on.
Testing - The power supply on the right is wrapped in clear packaging tape.
I mounted the power supplies to the pegboard with some bolts, M3 I believe. I then used some unshrunk heat shrink (1" wide) and duct tape to try to insulate the screws.
And my awesome duct tape job.
25.2v output under no load.
