Re: Polaris Ranger EV

I would love to know the range you're getting once you have this new setup installed and also some pictures of it once finished as this is something I will be doing with my brand new 2020 Ranger when I buy it. Also if you get a cycle analyst it would be a incredible I said for you to have for your c...

Matt, The 10AH he was citing was Either SLA or old fashioned laptop Lithium Ion... their C rating or "Discharge Capacity" which is the technical proper term is about 2C max, so a 10AH pack would provide up to 20, maybe even 25A without issue but the controllers are pulling 35 peak (which would be u...

Re: Controller and Battery compatibility question.

I did a quick look up of your battery's pack and see that the standard battery is a 24V 10AH sealed lead acid battery. You were probably getting roughly 5AH max out of it before it died. SLA batteries are notorious for giving much less than their rated power because of the Peukert effect. The 8AH N...

Ok I found http://www.unitedhobbies.com/hobbycity/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=10870 there. Looks awesome, I suppose I am confused on mAh values. 5800mAh is 5.8 Amps right? So wouldn't the 8ah NiCad's go alot farther in range? Also for that pack I linked above do I need to replace my controller? ...

Nutsandvolts or whoever. Do you recommend I purchase either a Cycle Analyst or a Watts Up device (not sure on what the latter of the two choices does or how it works) at the same time I order my controller / pack? Thanks and talk soon.
