Re: Electric jetski build

.My Ant bms/battery only charges to 4.158 per cell. Any tips on getting it to charge up to the full 4.20v per cell? 20s2p SPIM08HP battery..... Seriously ?..why ? There will be no noticeable change in performance from that 0.8 volt increase of pack voltage,..but you will likely seriously reduce the...

Re: Options for powering a 12' ultralight catamaran

Most of the stock trolling motors are designed around a “ trolling” spec use. That means they are optimised for low speed use on mono hull fishing boats, often with compromised “weed release” prop designs People do use them for other uses, but to get the best efficiency/ speed for something like a s...

But if you cannot get the battery to function,..can you find an alternative battery/ voltage source , you could hook up to test the controller and motor.?

You need to be realistic and aware of retail pricing for similar cells....<$200/kWh...pre assembled, with warranty.

Re: Ebikes don't like going underwater!

Never mind 7 m wide....how deep was it ? Assume you have removed and dried the battery ? Some electrical fault tracing skills are needed. That should be easy to check with a MMeter etc to see if it is still charging or a fuse is blown. Most likely you have drowned the controller in the base of the b...

Re: More Power, Capacity and Less Expensive (21700)

Using Molicel’s data from their spec sheet, each cell has a “typical” capacity of 15.5 Wh. So a pack using 196 cells ( of any configuration ) will have ..15.5 x 196 = 3038 Wh (3.038 kWh) BUT, the usable capacity will depend on what charge voltage is used , and what LVC is set . And at $980 cost, is ...

Thats most likely because they are at the bottom of a “blind” tapped hole where the end threads on the tap would be tapered off.

Opt for fake plants in your front and back gardens.

Or just rock it all
