Re: LiFePO4 voltage drop question

I have never had that happen with my Headway's, but other LiFePo4 owners have said that their Lifepo4 does settle.

It could also be your BMS working on the cells.

How long do you leave them on the charger?

Re: how about a 3d printer section?

ive probably deleted 40hrs of design :evil:
Yea, I miss my Lulzbot Taz that I had on loan for 3 years, but sadly it went back to the A$$#*!! that loaned it to me. However 3D printing can be a tinkers nightmare, no question. It has got to be a labor-of-love.

Show us a picture of the wires. Perhaps somebody will know. Without a picture of the wires, well, "who knows".

Are you sure it is the relay?

Re: Battery Charging and Repair Problem

With e-bikes, connectors rattle apart quite frequently. However, your battery is not young. Start saving for a new battery.

Re: Battery Charging and Repair Problem

1: I doubt that your battery was fully charged when the repair guy sent it back to you because for the purpose of shipping lithium batteries should be at 30% charged. (30% state of charge.) 2: Just because the green light turns on when your charger is finished doesn't automatically mean that the bms...

Re: New motorcycle conversion questions

LiFePo4 is generally 3.65v per cell fully charged. At 3.2v nominal, that would be 30 cells for the series parts of the battery , (30 x 3.2v = 96v) It would be 109.5v fully charged. (30 x 3.65v = 109.5v) I have no ideas on a quality bms, but googling around for a 30s + bms + LiFePo4 will give you som...

Re: Advice wanted: melted motor connector: next step?

Shorts get hot at the point of a short. Then the heat spreads down the wires. I would also check the female side of the connector for lose wiring. If your customer melted it at the connector it is most likely that the customer was hammering the throttle and the under-valued connector couldn't handle...
