methods wrote:People think I am charging a lot for these at $50 but the reality is that I use very expensive and particular parts from a specific manufacturer and vendor, I pay an over-educated white dude to populate them, and my profit margin is so tiny that you would blush if I told you. The only reason I am even doing this is to try and learn the ropes so that some day I might actually make money
For now - my goal is typically to just make the money back that I invest and to call what I learn in the process my profit.

I am running 4s4p (20Ah) will only need 4 lvc boards for 16S, It is not much work to wire them up and you probably right about 24S too much work with the wires.

arth_d wrote:Hi im after making a 12s2p battery kit. (4x 6S 5000mah zippy packs to make a 44.4V 10ah Pack). I figure i need 2x LVC/HVC/Parallel Boards, a HVC Breaker Board and a Throttle Retard Assembly. After looking at your 18S photo at the start of this thread it looks like it is a 18S1p kit. I was just wondering where the other 2 balance plugs from the other 2 batteries go if i make a 12s2p kit go.

methods wrote:Most folks buy 4S packs to save a few $0.01/wh at the cost of lots of build labor wiring it all together. Although one could use our boards with 4S packs it would be an inefficient use and the added cost would offset the savings you made buying 4S packs.
chroot wrote:Methods- I'll take 8 piece of 4s lvc boards and I can stop by your friend's recycle shop whenever you are available.
methods wrote:We have a few one-offs for the adventurous. 2 or 3 of the epoxy boards. Maybe a handful of boards that are "factory re-certified". Etc. I will probably put all of these into an attractive package and sell them as a lot with some other one-off stuff like jumper cables that need re-wiring and maybe a big bag of old balance tap crap we dont use anymore.
