Re: Yuasa lev 50 cells for sale in the Uk

Have you done any discharge testing on the cells?

Re: Samsung SDI cells, 4.2v, 70Ah 70A/210A - EU

Where have you got the 210A discharge figure from and are you sure they are 70Ah? I’m not saying you are wrong, it’s just that the BMW i3 uses Samsung SDI cells (I believe) and they are 60Ah. They can also probably discharge more than 210A. See my thread here: https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewt...

Re: BMW i3 Batteries

Thanks Michael, useful information. I wonder if one exists for the 60Ah version as that’s for the 94Ah. The table seems to suggest a 5 second burst at 413A is as much as they can handle and that’s the 94Ah battery. The 60Ah is likely to be less. Maybe not good enough in a 1P configuration for my pro...

Re: BMW i3 Batteries

Ok, so 40HP = about 30KW. So if I use two of these BMW modules in series it will be 24S & at 250A continuous that’s roughly 22KW. 500A bursts would be roughly 44KW. I don’t think I could realistically match the performance of the tuned FL400 you had but stock should be doable. What about weight? Any...

Re: BMW i3 Batteries

It might be a slow burner Tom but keep your eyes peeled as I’ll document it all on here. Hard to find them in the UK and they are expensive so it may take me a while to find one. Out of interest, do you know any performance specs for a standard FL400? Top speed, horse power, 0-60 type of figures etc...

Re: BMW i3 Batteries

I completely agree and my research into EV batteries for the use in my project has inadvertently led me to diy “power walls”. Not necessarily as useful here in the UK due to our weather but still something that has got me thinking.

What kind of motor are you thinking of using?
Early stages of my planning but possibly a Motenergy ME1616 coupled with a Sevcon GEN4 Size6 controller. Initial thoughts are 250A continuous & 500-600A bursts.

BMW i3 Batteries

I'm considering purchasing the battery out of a low mileage BMW i3 for a project I'm planning (conversion of a Honda Pilot FL400 offroad buggy from petrol to electric) but can't find a huge amount of information about them either on here or elsewhere on the internet. What I've found so far and my as...

Re: Stand-up Off-Road Scooter

This is mine that I'm working on at the moment. Won't come in under $1000 unfortunately. The motor arrived just before Christmas but wasn't right so I'm waiting to hear back from the manufacturer. http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g262/suggsy/image_zpsf4xpfbt7.jpeg I know of one for sale similar to ...

Re: Custom Torque Arms designed and fabricated

Great work Barent. In the middle of designing and making my own custom torque arms and it's not easy.

I'm sure you've already tried but can the axle nuts fit on? Looks a bit tight for space on the photos but the angle isn't quite right to be able to tell.

Re: Dyna-Snap magnetic wiring connector

Very cool, but just like Apple, way over priced. I agree but this is such small scale at the moment I can understand them pricing it high to cover some of their development costs. I don't thing there is much innovative technology in it so I think the price will need to come down significantly once ...

Re: Dyna-Snap magnetic wiring connector

If there was a high voltage version available this would be perfect for a quick release/kill switch battery connection for those people using a rucksack to carry their battery.

Re: Controller Size & Shape

Yeah, that's only a 1000w controller, 22 amps. I didn't assume you wanted speeds over 30 mph. You'll be paying then, for the Grin controller. It's not so much the top speed I want, more the acceleration/torque and therefore a pretty high current draw. I've got a Greenpedel 3000w motor on order so t...

Thanks Amberwolf. Embarrassingly I've not read that thread or seen that controller before :oops:
