Re: Over volt motor what broke? 18volt-36 volt

18V cordless do run great at 6s x 4.10V 24.6V. I built a hip pack and connect empty 18V DeWalt, B&D, Ryobi, Ridgid and Craftsman (18-19.2V) battery shells for enhanced performance. But pushing past 25V (caps?) of to 40V+ from "36V" (35V caps possibly? burnt also) is near certain to provoke multiple...

Great post very descriptive. You could have done anything from blow the fets to toast the windings to break the gearbox.
You are correct I did not add enough details or pictures. I will try to check mosfets (I assume they usually have 3 prongs) gears still feel in melted.

Thanks

Over volted power tool motor. What broke? 18 volt to 36 volt Coleman

Greetings folks, I have some 18 volt power tools; I over volted them with a 36 volt battery. Does anybody know if or how I could repare them? Maybe the caps? Coleman 18 volt tools. Drill and Circular saw. The tools worked shortly before they stopped, one is a drill the other a circular saw. They did...

Re: Belt drive cyclone 3000 help

Is there a belt-pulley that fits the cyclone 3000? I could use a dual cog cassette and route the cyclone and the crank separately. But I would need a way to mount the cyclone at the back and a belt-pulley that fits the cyclone. What is the key notch type shaft that the cyclone 3000 uses called? Sti...

Re: Are Scooter LG 36V 4.4AH battery packs good for Ebike?

I made a rather bootleg charger out of two laptop chargers
They are 19ish volts each.

What is the highest amperage that you would charge 10 of these packs?

Yep, referenced the ebikes.ca link from before. Not sure the colors line up with the ones in the pdf, but I tested every combination of terminals out of curiousity. The only one that is irregular is the one in the video. The combination giving the problem does not seem to be the ground wire, is the...
