*Request Battery Configuration Suggestions For Case

OK i need your input. Some of you guys know I make harnesses. A customer sent me his batteries and this battery case to make a harness. The battery configuration is 4s 3p or 88v 18AH using 6s 6 AH Turnigy Nanotechs. The first 4 slots on the left only hold 1 battery.The 4 slots on the right hold two ...

Re: "Destination Discovery" Extended Range MXUS 3000W Build

Capacity starts to suffer slightly but mainly voltage sag. With Hobby King batteries you must derate the batteries. Their stated rating which is labeled on the pack which is a peak rating is not to be used in a continuous fashion. The continuous rating of the cells is usually 1/4 of the stated ratin...

Re: bbs02 at 80 km/h

Hes going down hill in this video. You dont hear the motor at all until he turns behind the car. His other video you her the motor and hes traveling at a much believable speed.

Re: "Destination Discovery" Extended Range MXUS 3000W Build

So here is an update on the build. I went back to TDCM Torque Sensing Bottom Bracket after trying a lack luster 8 pole chinese pas sensor. You need a 120mm model to pull off the upgraded 60T chainring. I also upgraded to a 60T chain ring. This required a new crank set and chain ring from Vuelta USA....

Just finished listening to the Kinaye podcast. I liked it a lot, made some notes about throttle ramp, batt/phase amps and block time was good to know too. Thanks.

Re: Definitive Tests on the Heating and Cooling of Hub Motor

Do yo think a thick stator fluid would have less leakage and running.. assuming at the cost of added drag. Or do you think that if the remaining amount is probably the perfect amount that would remain intact by magnetic forces without it slinging it every where. Any benefit with a vented setup.

Re: Calculating Capacity

Your charger should be able to discharge and charge the cell and give you MAH for both.

Re: Calculating Capacity

no. the only way to know the capacity is to measure it. to measure it you have to fully charge it and then fully discharge it. the voltage does not mean a thing. I believe you. I don’t want to start an argument here. Just for clarification. When I tried the following calculation: Taking the example...

Re: Calculating Capacity

Sounds like you dont want to actually check the batteries. Voltage isnt a good indicator at all on how much capacity is left in a cell or what the over all capacity. No you can not use your starting voltage and how much capacity you put in to the cell calculate the capacity. Capacity can only be cal...

Re: Definitive Tests on the Heating and Cooling of Hub Motor

Also can you grab any data on how long it takes for a sealed motor to cool and stabilize to the point where it makes no sense to wait because it will be like watching paint dry vs a vented in the same scenario. Basically I guess Time from Critical to Ambient. And would it to be better or faster to k...

Re: Definitive Tests on the Heating and Cooling of Hub Motor

The sealed motor is creating its own micro climate. I found the sealed motor took a while to shake the heat off and would essentialy stabilize but still drop over an extremely long period of time. While even slight disturbances such as a draft affects the drilled covers alot more so when the drilled...

Go on my One drive and download the LQ cast. These are the ones I just recently compressed and they have 1 channel mono mixed audio. But again i said in the previous message that cast #10 onward shouldnt have this issue as you mentioned because I changed the setting in the recording software.
