20s15p Sony Konion pack for sale

So I built this a couple years ago. Works great but I just built a 45amp 30Q pack and don’t need a second for back up. The good, I bought a bunch of Makita 18 volt packs from Doctorbass and pulled them apart. I went though all the cells, pulled the good and pitched the bad. Built using .2mm nickel a...

Re: Electroplating copper with pure nickel (PICS)

I have a fairly powerful capacitor discharge welder at 800 watt seconds (according to the designer can peak at 10,000 amps!) and can tell you that both copper and brass are very hard to weld. I’ve tried copper, glidcop and tungsten electrodes with almost no difference. I have read that a couple have...

Re: QS 205 experts needed

Lights, horn and accessories are better powered by a DC/DC converter. Vicor is the best. Or, there are now available some lights/horn kits that are ´universal’, up to 85c DC. Mopeds are usually not so good at handling the full power of a QS205h50. Let’s say, many would need some upgrades, suspensio...

Oh forgot to say there are many ways to get a charger that will work for you either pre built or gang up server power supplies to get to the voltage you need.

Re: Lets play build a battery.

All a big guess on what you actually might do and since your not for sure here goes, My figures should be pretty good in a hypothetical draft! :D Id tell you to stick with 24s which is 88 volts nominal and 100 volts hot off the charger. Since your looking at a 20kw motor we need to see your max amp ...

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? An...

Stock Horsepower was about 40. Top speed was about 65 mph. 0 to 60 no clue. I had mine ported, polished, rev pipe, 39mm Mikuni carb, reeds, custom stuffer and a power bloc clutch. Bumped it up to 60/65hp and raised top speed to about 70. I could pull a wheelie for about 10 to 15 feet after the Hoser...

Re: Suzuki GSX-R e899 K2

Agreed....looks like something was bouncing around in there causing havoc. Wonder what that could have been? Since the magnetic ring is OK it might just be easier to order a new stator to your specs?

Re: Suzuki GSX-R e899 K2

Maybe QS would be interested in sponsoring you since your racing their motor? They seam to be into that on their web site.

Couldn’t hurt to ask and all it does is help their business & the electrical revolution.

Re: 18650 spot welding -how to- ULTIMATE REPOSITORY

I guess it COULD kinda act as a fusible link if all goes to hell in a hand Basket?

I would think you need a whole bunch more of parallel connections? Looks like only a thin piece of nickel at each parallel run?

What cells and what is total draw from pack?

Re: MXUS 3000 Hub Motor - V1 V2 V3

Is this motor still the best 3000W hub motor available? How does it compare to the Crystalyte Crown TC3080? Does anyone know where I can buy one built with a wheel in the US? Actually the QS 205 is the best 3000 watt motor out there but is heavier than the MXUS. http://www.cnqsmotor.com/en/article_...
