I've got an alien esc and would like some flat batteries. Would it be a good idea to use 3 3s batteries in series.

What do you think the range would be? running single 63 mm 3,2 KW motor.
What is the deal with chargers? I mean damn!! I'm used to laptop batteries what should i get?
I've been looking at this one:

Do i need a charger AND a balancer... and a powersource? (what is that)
Am i able to charger multiple batteries at a time (like 2 3s batteries)
I have seen that some boards have an indicator. I think it's a voltmeter... is it necessary... where do you get it?
What does antispark mean? how do i get it?
Thanks for answering our noob-questions

Something like this would look great and could be drilled and pressed flush into the deck. These are awesome too: http://bit.ly/1iwwNml

Will test the HV boat ESCs.. just to be clear the braking is generated by pushing the stick forward or by the absence of pulling back..
Hopefully it will allow throttle..(pulling back) coasting (neutral range) and braking (front push)... My destroyer build (viewtopic.php?f=35&t=58504) has a HV airplane esc and on Dynamic braking setup it doesnt really brake when i want it to.. it just throttles on pullback and brakes (100%) when I return to neutral or front... no coasting. This made me add band brakes as an alternative, but I might want to try having the ESC brakes and normal and the band brakes as a safety..
So I guess the point would be if the boat esc allows throttle..coasting.. and braking?

The post says any board will work (specifically, any longboard). But, I've been browsing the various top brands of boards and some models (especially the landyachtz boards) have a deep drop between the trucks, which is great if your kicking, but is a hazard if you have electronics down there.
Maybe clearance doesn't matter, especially with large wheels that get the board situated higher (ala 4x4 monster truck). Anyone using such a style of board with no problems?
