how do you manage the batteries??? are you ripping the batteries out to balance/charge? ideally, i just want to plug in the outlet to recharge like a cellphone. i dont want to mess with anything else....
Most people use off the shelf rc lipo packs which are batteries with no BMS.
Typical rc lipo pack usage is removing packs and/or leaving packs and charging with a RC Lipo charger.
1. Wire your setup up with 9pin aircraft connectors.
2. Wire your setup with a Y connector for charging ports.
IMO.. Unless you have 10ah/15ah ideally 20ah on your board. It's very limited.
Just like my cell phone. I personally prefer to swap battery packs when I need a fresh charge.
Sucks having to wait by a charger to get more juice.
My setup is pretty easy. I have my packs taped up in packs of 2 which I wire in series on my board.
The 2 packs are held in a 7" tablet cover from eBay.
I also have the charging indicator slide button from HobbyKing on each pack. Green for charged, Red for full discharge. Use the green packs only and charge the red packs later.
Charge (3) sets in Parallel which is 6 batteries in total and take them with me.
Maybe, I'll post a picture one of these days.
