Hello try, esk8 calculator online


#4365

NM. Googled it. Thank


#4366

Just divide the Ah of your battery by the amps of the charger. So a 8Ah battery charges in 4 hours with a 2A charger and within 2 hours with 4A charger.


#4367

Yes.
12s4p
3000mah
30Q

3000mah/1000
3ah

3ah x 4(4p) =12ah

12ah / 8amps
1.5 hrs.

Correct math?


#4368

Are you charging at 8A?


#4369

Exactly :ok_hand:

1.5 hours is a great charging time for 12 Ah.
This are the specs of 30Q

A 4p pack you could even charge with 16A within 45 minutes :laughing:


#4370

Yes

10 char char char


#4371

Yup, I figured but wanted to stay “conservative”.


#4372

I thought I’m conservative with my 3A and 4A chargers :rofl:
I need more amps…


#4373

Well. I have 2 4amp chargers and 1 8amp.

I don’t charge 8amps all the time. Haha


#4374

Then you don’t need it and better send it to me


#4375

LOL. Nice try. :joy:


#4376

Which charge port do you use with 8A?


#4377

If I ever get a 16amp charger, I’ll send this to you. Haha


#4378

This small hole.


#4379

Haha great! I have exactly the same charge ports from aliexpress and was worried to charge above 4A. The seller says up to 12A but that sounds way too much. Such charge ports are often rated with 4-6A when looking at electronic stores. But on the other hand they sell 8A charger with this system.

I have no idea if it’s good but if it works for you it could work for me, too. :grin:


#4380

I bought the 8amp from @accrobrandon. He said it should be fine as long as you have a good gauge of wire and NOT use jht connector. Im using deans and added 15amp fuse on the positive wire charging port per @b264 recommendation.

Supa fast shipping. Legit.


#4381

yessir…and thx for the kudos… yeah 22ga would be on the line…but anything bigger is all good… and ghe connector is key as mentioned. lemme know how long yur full charge takes… its usually close to an hour for me from 20% at 8amps


#4382

@pookybear @rich @accrobrandon
I was also debating using the 5.5x2.1mm for 8A charging but they are all rated up to 5A except one which is rated at 7A (but requires the super-long barrel plugs, and I don’t want to change all ten chargers)

But I thought they’d probably work at 8A – especially if it wasn’t charged at 8A every single time, but only sometimes

Hearing this is confirming what I was thinking


#4383

well… i guess ill be the test subject… i only have 8amp chargers for sale…so thats what i own and use…every time… since sept…so far so good… i know kaly has those special ports that are long as hell… but no one else has em so…
