Im just a neebie so still learning. I had an electric bike for about a year which was great to commute to uni but a friend gave it away to lifeline so I need a replacement. It was a 1kw hub motor kit and got me to uni in about 10 mins (6km) So averaging around 36km/h i think.
I would like to build a skateboard to try and get a similar speed and travel time. From what ive been reading I would probably need a 12S setup. However, I came across this slimmer 10S battery and I would love to try use my cnc to build 2 or 3 of these batteries into the deck.
I cant decide whether to go with the 190kv motor from enertion or the much cheaper Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 - 5065-236kv motor.
I think the best option will be to go with a VESC from enertion too along with the motor pulley and belt. I think the gt2b controller sounds like the way to go however doesn’t seem to be easily available in Australia.
I plan on just making my own deck or hacking up a cheap one and using my cnc to make the large pulley and motor bracket.
My main question is if anyone can share some information on the best way to charge a 10S lipo. I really dont want to buy a crazy expensive charger so I’m guessing building my own would be the cheapest option. I know I could get two 5S lipos and connect them up in series to get 10S and then charge them in parallel with a cheaper charger but I would prefer to minimise wiring and like the idea of using 2 or 3 - 10S slim batteries in parallel. Could anyone point me in the right direction as to if it is possible to get a charger for such a setup on a budget (sub $100aud)?
