Re: WIN FREE ENERTION GEAR | !! WINNERS ANNOUNCED !!

Just received the package with my prize and wow! It's amazing! The material used is definitely high quality and the cool blue color is a plus :) These things are made to last. Everything is easy to assemble too! So now, as soon as I can get employed, I'll be able to test it in action :D Thanks Onloop!

Re: How to charge my batteries?

Congrats on the win! Consider yourself what $500 ahead of someone else starting out on a new build? Just save some money and do it right. (the first time) Otherwise, you'll be like a number of other guys who seem to always be asking about burned out motors and ESC's. Saving money on electronics now...

Re: How to charge my batteries?

Your comparing 12V SLA to 22.2V Lipo. Do you want to ride 5mph? You might need to reconsider on all your components as well. I'm particularly not experienced with those so wouldn't be able to help you much further. Do you also see the height 3.7" and 8 lb battery? LOL to save a few bucks.. Didn't y...

Re: How to charge my batteries?

How would I be charging with 4.5 amps? The charger is a 10A charger. Anything less won't charge the batteries right? They will be drawing 5A each. You can create Y connectors and combine your battery plugs to a Y connector. They'll have to split off to the ESC and to a separate cable that you use fo...

Just got a longboard! Cheap deck and knockoff abec 11 flywheels 83mm with caliber trucks. I was gonna have it drop through until I motorize it but the wheels are just too big. http://imgur.com/a/9F8mz/

Re: Implementing regenerative braking on electric longboard

As furp said, it's actually regen coasting instead of regen braking. When the motor is forced to spin (ie. coasting) it acts as a generator. We coast a lot so we can regen a lot. The esc has to be able to send the current in the opposite direction and you can only store the amount of current into y...

Implementing regenerative braking on electric longboard

I'm thinking of building an electric longboard and want to use regenerative braking but how would that be achieved? My knowledge of electronics is pretty low but I learn fast and can follow instructions pretty well.
