30Ah 28s LiPo from 7s bricks

Everybody have suggested that I should use lipo-s in my kart. So now I have made a plan to build this battery. And actually there is multiple goals to achieve when building this. 1. It should be lighter than my current ones. 2. I want to use this for my two controller+motor 1/4 mile test insted of t...

Re: iCharger 4010 Duo review

Replaced this Voltage regulator and charger started to work with 12V laboratory power supply output. IMG_4880.jpg Had to replace that 6,3V CAP also because it was a little puff to the eye. And it was only after I tried with 15V meanwhile. Then I turned charger off and upped voltage to 35V and when t...

Can you weight one pair with plastics?

Re: Industrial Motor gokart build

do you have link for these "Using 300amp 1/0GA welding connectors"
I will build 6p usin 8awg wires, so was thinking of crimping one pack positive and another negative together.
because anderson 350 is too bulky, but this looks promising and can keep up my average 200A and peak 650A :)

Re: single cell or prebuilt pack

Green is amps, you can see green y axis in left.
Yellow is discharged mAh
Blue is temp
Red is pack voltage
Others are cell voltages.

Each has its own y axis in left or right
And x axis is elapsed time

Re: single cell or prebuilt pack

Did the test with Zippy but first impression is that I need "Turnigy Heavy Duty" instead.
Will try to do more Amp test if I can get my iCharger DUO to get it to draw more amps.

Re: single cell or prebuilt pack

Considering same thing. I bought one zippy compact 5Ah and 7s with 25c/35c raiting. Will test it with my icharger duo in sync mode with 70A and see how it handles. second choice was Turnigy Heavy Duty 5000mAh 7S 60C Lipo Pack w/XT90 but with these my pack would be 5kg heavier and also 12055cm3 rathe...

For olimex there is project in https://bitbucket.org/elektrikardid/ but it is not public. But you can't use that for telemetr...

Re: Electric kart

Tested how limiting power is affecting motor temp and used energy. And as Latvia has now official electric kart class (two of them, one 15kw and another open up to 25kw) then it was time to test it. Motor temp were under control with 250A battery limit but lap times were 3sec slower. Also about 1,6A...

What did you use to press the copper to the battery? plastic O-Ring and paste?
Actually ended up not using any paste.
I used 8mm thick foam (you can see that in some of the pictures) that I punched out of bigger piece. I pressed it down to 2mm.

So what is the correct length, width and thickness of each module? Wasent it 0.5mm thick? Im building the same pack. Just as 6x 6s10 packs :) yes it was 0,5mm thick. I calculated that it will shrink 3mm but in reality it shrank 4mm. So my drawings are 1mm off in length I think. We never bothered to...

Re: Solderless A123 pack

Hey

Only dwg is and pdf.
But in this dwg lenght is 1mm short. I had to file bigger both side two holes so that copper will fit to holders.
Reason is that when I stamped copper it shrinked and I calculated it 1mm wrong for the whole lenght :)

Hey

I analyzed my 8 lap race and average battery current was 125A, event max was over 600A.
I'm using anderson 350 connector and 35mm2 cables and both are just fine with that. Anderson is 350A continious.
Here is graph also.
