Re: mon-goose to MON-STER 6KW

Hey, that's all coming on well. Just thought I'd mention something I remember an old boss telling me about welding. This is after telling him I could weld to get a job doing garage doors. (welding back thick safety chains to a Howard slasher was all I had done) he chucked me on his front lawn with a...

Re: mon-goose to MON-STER 6KW

That looks like it will be fun . Got some interesting work ahead of you too. I'm thinking I might do a powerful dh bike before long. I will be on the lookout for something suitable. I seem to have forgotten about the planes. Really enjoying this ebiking, now riding too ,love it. I'm keen to get some...

Re: Tricky43's Giant DH Team Lyen 4115 x5306

Got some more bits and almost ready to start the build I went for a 24" wheel to match the 24" rear one laced onto the x5306 http://mobileinstall.co.uk/ebike/dmr_front_wheel.JPG I'm going to fit Halo Contra 3.0" tyres on it which are the same ones as are on the Stealth Bomber at £21.00 each I thoug...

Re: Voltage variance after short

Well good news, I have partly discharged the packs that were shorted and they are all discharging evenly, phew. That with the old harness still. So it seems it was the short. Lesson learned, the hard way. Interesting reverse polarity protection on the golden controller, just blow the terminal off :r...

Re: My Trance 29ER (work in progress)

Bike gets along we'll it's not going to beat any speed records, tops out at around 42k That's fast enough really, for me, I don't really want to start donning my motorbike gear, and much quicker I recon I will feel like it. It goes up hills ok , I'm only really using top gear. All up weight is 24 ki...

Finally some paint! Started after sanding the resin down by using a water based aerosol grey primer, it dried really quickly showed up all my pinholes good , couldn't help but rub them all full of wet paint with my finger so hopefully there all gone and it will knock down fairly quick and start to g...

Re: Voltage variance after short

You'd have to do a discharge capacity test, to know anything about variance in capacity. So the wattmeter, plus a load, run till it's empty, say 3.5v per cell perhaps, log the capacity. Do some break in cycles before the 100% discharge though. I will do that, look at the cells that were shorted clo...

Re: Voltage variance after short

If the sort circuit (reverse polarity controller appears as a short) was enough to get the wires in your harness warm then even a small difference in wire lengths could cause one pair of batterys to discharge more than the other. A few milliohms makes for a noticable volt drop at 100A let alone the...

Re: Voltage variance after short

I suppose it's possible that you have some weak cells, but only really noticed them after this event. I'm betting it was just more out of balance than you thought though. Were you monitoring real close before this happened? Or just watching pack voltage? They were all good, I have made my battrey h...

Re: Voltage variance after short

That's what I was fishing for. Did you have any cells with 0v, and the answer is no. A pack with a 0v cell would of course be seen by the battery checker as having lower than expected voltage when checking the main leads. The only reasonable explanation then, is that you did not have some of the pa...
