I'm trying to build an E-kart so I could have a project with my twin brother. Yes, we are new to this but hopefully, this will get us well rounded. So far we have a Phantom Racing Chassis, Motor, and controller. The part I am having a problem since I'm new to this is finding what batteries to use to get the most riding time and speed. I want at least a 1hr runtime and at least to be able to reach 60mph within 2-3 sec. Also, I want to know should I go with A123 or LG18650?
Here are the parts I have already...
- Phantom Racing Chassis
- Sabvoton SVMC072150 Controller
- Motenergy 72v ME0201014201 Motor
What I need to know:
-What batteries should I use?
-What is the easiest way to charge?
-Should I install a BMS?
THANK EVERYONE IN ADVANCE FOR HELPING ME
