Simple Charging Port (Plug n Play)

Hi Awesome Enthusiasts, This is my first post, so....if I appear to be lacking in my knowledge, you'll know why. With my disclaimer out of the way, here's my question: I'm in the process of building my electric longoard. My setup is a Turnigy SK3 270KV, 150A Hobbywing ESC, and a 6s 4400mah LiFEPO4 o...
