Re: lipo battery construction, charger and bms?

I know, but I think i would be better off at first with a charging board. Simpler for now. Mostly stock connections, other than the wiring harness. It's an interesting setup but I am going to stick to a stock setup as much as possible. Save some effort and make things more easily hotswappable. I'm e...

Re: lipo battery construction, charger and bms?

That is an interesting setup, would I be able to leave the balancing wires in the parallel charging board while it's used? Like while the batteries are in use? There's no reason not to right? I mean as long as the output plugs are not plugged into the charging board right? Just to make sure.

I'm glad you all care so much about others safety, however the reason I am on here is to find out the safe way to do this, so by simply saying "go buy one", the result is that I do not gain any such knowledge, whereas if you were to make a suggestion of how to do it safely and which materials to use...

also his ratings are getting progressively worse. 1/3 of the bad ratings for the last 12 months are from the last month. in one month he got over 33.3% of his yearly "you suck" ratings. he's getting shittier by the day.

Re: lsv nev lithium batteries

i have already determined i need lifepo4 chemistry, and i want at least 100 amphours for the pack. also the ability to choose between 48 and 72 volt systems is good. a pack that is "drop in ready" would be best. dealing with these things has made me grow tired of pack failure so a reputable person i...

Re: clubcar villager vs polaris/chrysler gem, pros and cons,

let me do this again. i would like to know which is better to get. my hope is to get a decent priced, reliable form of transportation. i want to know, if using the same voltage the manufacturer has on the vehicle, which is better for distance and speed? a 72 volt system because of the power? or a 48...
