Re: US Group buy for the new MXUS 3000w V3

(1) Hub Motor
(1) 19" Wheel - Laced
(1) Upgraded Axle

With a 3" tire mounted, will it require balancing? I would also like a matching front wheel, if available.

Re: US Group buy for the new MXUS 3000w V3

I also own a couple of businesses that started mainly from SIG forums. So I feel for teslanv, but not to the point that I agree of him voicing his personal opinions of mal-intent by roadrash. We can feel what we want, but once it's in writing it's often difficult to backtrack just in case you are in...

Re: 5-16S Smart Tiny BMS preorder - 30/150/600A rated

Hi circuit.

I submitted an order for 150A BMS + USB + BT. Could I also have the temp sensor added to my order when the product is ready to ship?

Re: Short range battery ideas

If you can set your LVC on your controller getting (2) HK MultiStar 6S/12A packs might work well for you. I have a MP5 and can program the controller via BT on the fly (when BT connects which is another story!). Otherwise, you can get a 10S pack by combining a 6S and 4S pack with the same capacity ~...

Re: Turnigy Multistar - lightweight 10C cells

I have been combining 4S and 6S 20A MultiStars and they seem to do very well with lots of cycles already on them. 200+ so far of 30A continuous for about 45 mins to 1 hour. Most of the time, I set my pack up as 14S1P--having no parallel cells is an added bonus to simplicity and keeping them in balan...

Re: Source for 5V from S12S Controller?

I faced the same dilemma and thought about using the +5V from the PAS wire on my MagicPie 5. I also had one of those generic "Cree T6" lights that connected to 5V USB and thought it would nice to connect it to my main battery pack. After some thoughts, I purchased a 4 LED light with a voltage regula...

Re: Lunacycles Charger - adjustable?

Well, after opening up the Kingpan charger, I see that there is a pot near the LEDs that adjusts voltage from around 50-70V with 20 full cycles. The easy way would simply be to drill a hole right above the pot in the aluminum case and use a long plastic flathead to adjust the voltage to my liking--a...

Re: Lunacycles Charger - adjustable?

I have a few Kingpan chargers in the silver/black aluminum cases that have been set for various voltages. There are a few adjustable pots inside the case that can be adjusted. I have read in a few guitar forums of people creating switches to toggle between different voltages and amps just like the t...

Re: Revive 5s 5000 turningy pack?

@athletic91, Do you know the cycle count of the battery pack? You should be able to bleed off the other cells connecting some small 3V flashlight bulbs to the balance connector. Start with the black wire (negative) and the first one next to it should be cell 1, then 2, 3, 4, and lastly cell 5 at the...

Re: Solar charge 18650

The PWM solar controller has the circuitry to handle the types SLA (Wet/AGM/Gel) to charge properly, but also has a "load" connection point so basically add your stepup. If there isn't enough current from solar, it draws the remainder from your connected SLA. Just make sure your PWM controller meets...

Re: The Best Battery Bang For Your Buck!!!

@OP, Great way to manipulate PVC and very creative. @easyrider, Well, you wouldn't be saving all that money as good quality 18650's usually come with more usable charge cycles and are inherently safer, easier to shape/conform into your frame, but more difficult to wire up. You may also look at the p...

Re: Solar charge 18650

Since your batteries need CC/CV, you might want to have a fully charged 2S 12V SLA 10A+ before the stepup. A PWM solar controller to maintain the SLAs @ 24V. As long as you don't try to use the full capacity of the SLA ~ 6A/hrs, but rather just use it as a charging buffer, it should last quite awhil...

Re: Evg Ebike battery

I ripped apart (4) 36V Bosch FatPack tool batteries as they had some nice and durable LiMn2O4 batteries (Sony VT). I use the built-in charger on the EVG 36V battery box and set the max charging limit on the pot to 41.8V and the SLA programmed charger has kept my pack healthy. I still check them year...
