So I bought 40 18650 Samsung cells. I was told 10s4p would be the best configuration for my single motor build. I have the Enertion R-SPEC 6372 motor.
Because I don’t have any knowledge or a workplace or even the tools to put a pack together, I’m getting someone I know to do it for me. He said he would help but he asked me a few things…
"I see you have no pack protection circuit, I’d strongly suggest we include this rather than run the risk of your pack going the way of low priced hover boards.
Do you know the maximum current you expect to draw from your motor? This will help us decide on the nickel strip we use for welding as well as an appropriate battery protection circuit.
We can also help with a charger."
Before I reply to him I’d like to know what a pack protection circuit is? And about the maximum current, what does that imply? Thank you in advance.
