It also serves to crank start a 9. It is best to charge the batteries in the system voltage they are normally in and size your charger accordingly. A great entry-level cell is the Samsung cell. It adds almost no weight and it also helps cushion the battery pack. They consist of finely balanced cells with identical perfomace. The biggest safety issue and damage issue though is to always be sure they are at the exact same voltage when you connect the two batteries in parallel. Here is my parts list: -Plastic 3 shelf cart from Costco 99.
Alternatively, you could install 9 or 10 of these switches in parallel. I want to buy 3 12 volt 12 amp batteries for a total of 6 in all, hook them up parallel to keep my 36 volt current. Assuming they are 2500 mAh a piece, then if I put 4 of these 10 cell in series packs together in parallel I would have a 10 Amp Hour battery correct? That goes for charging and for discharging into a load. The cells have 3,9V, is a little too, only one with 3,82 and the other 3,87. Always seek professional assistance if needed. Jordan Hey mate we are buying a bus and doing it up. However, most people that ride on flat roads spend very little time at peak current.
Is it safe to do something like that? These are quite different cells. There is too much room in the box , how to block the cells in this box? This happened with my phone cells which also had built-in protection and their circuits would supersede the main controller if I tried to draw more than 1C. I would like to run a 12 volt alternator and how would I hook it up to insure both batteries will be charged equally? I think that the battery pack failure was most likely caused by too much of a load applied to the battery pack. Why do we alternate sides of the pack during the welding process? Buy another chinese pack 24v 20ah configured 9p 6s with hopefully same cells and join them together. I was looking to withdraw amps by making connections from the battery directly but charging it through the bms as my bms is similar to yours max withdraw of 40 but I need upto 50a.
Paul I am replacing battery packs in an emergency lighting unit. Is that only desirable for high-speed acceleration or needed in general? A fairly common hobby-level Chinese spot welder There are two main levels of spot welders currently available: hobby level and professional. I measured out the width of three cells and cut enough nickel strip to weld the top and bottoms of 10 sets of 3 cells, meaning 20 strips of nickel that were each 3 cells wide, plus a couple spares in case I messed anything up. They are pricier, but you definitely get what you pay for. How long will my batteries support this until they die? Could I hook two 6v lantern batteries in series to make a 12v system that would run the light? They are dead-simple to use with bolt connections. The newer models just don't last much. I was able to turn the vehicle on and off every few hours so it did not have to run continiously.
Mine is on the backside of the board and I forgot to take a picture of it before installing it, but trust me that I took note of which end the sense wires start on. I am not sure if I should wire them in series, parallel or combination. Say, a trolling motor and an ebike. I am aware of the need for balancing and am concerned about safety issues. I am using all the same kind of battery as a base, but there are 10 of them meaning I would create 2 banks with 3 in a series, and 2 banks with 2 in a series in order to combine for the desired total out put. What inaccuracies will I get with the two hour test? Since a 13S4P pack is about 12Ah with good batteries i was wondering if you had any input on how i should move on? Unfortunatly its not the cheap method and requires a 3d printer to make.
I have to keep the throttle low whilst I am riding on the bike before it cuts out but if the wheel is spinning freely in the air then I can max out the throttle and make the motor run at full speed. Thanks for a great resource! The newer battery will fully charge at a faster rate than the other batteries. This is the point when you can start to bring a whole pack down, with even one battery in a bank starting to get overcharged, and in the end damaged from overcharging. I then have to plug the battery into my charger to 'reset' it before I can then plug it back into my bike and make it work again. Would you like to answer one of these instead? Now if i want want to give a temporary boost.
I use 6 cell 2300 mAh LiFe battery packs with cells connected serial to get 21,6 V. Now I take everything off. Now the question I wish answered:where in the string setup should the worst of the cells be and what is the benefit or disadvantage of adding more semi faulty batteries to the system. The only way to know what power your bike needs is to multiply battery voltage by controller current. There is a switch on the positive + that allows both batteries to run in parallel if needed.
I was given a 12v, 5000w inverter overkill for my needs but free is free and wish to install it properly. This helps keep the ends of your cells from getting dinged if the battery receives any rough treatment, which can happen accidentally in the form of a dropped battery or ebike accident. I am thinking I can in a 12v system wire 4 18650 batteries in series, that will be my cell and then say 100 cells in parallel and call that a block. Grid power is intermittent and I plan to use a diesel generator for most of the off-grid power, but as the samples in the freezer cannot be allowed to defrost, I want to have a battery back-up system in case of fuel shortages, breakdowns, etc. One of the batteries died the other day. This will keep both batteries balanced, and your 24v battery pack maintained.
There was an earlier comment here that a pack built on 4 parallel groups of 10 cells in series would produce a battery with too high of a discharge rate. BatteryStuff Tech We do not recommend pulling different voltages from a single battery bank. And if possible, I want to be on the smaller end of that range so the heat shrink will be tighter and hold more firmly. Or will it not work because I have changed the amperage of those batteries by connecting them into series with uneven numbers of batteries in each those series of 3 being 360ah each, and those series of two being 240ah each? This charger is a good quality one meant for 8 cells output voltage of 29. This is a well visible problem with laptop batteries today - thats why they die so fast.
I think you will need a thermal sensor near the middle of the pack to make sure the batteries do not overheat. However if I remove the external battery and recharge the internal 12V 16Ah battery it now does not retain its charge. For many years there were only mediocre 18650 cells available, but the demand by power tool makers and even some electric vehicle manufacturers for strong, high quality cells has led to the development of a number of great 18650 options in the last few years. Components from Amazon or Ebay may potentially be counterfeit. The mah milliamp hours or current capacity is the total of each series set. I wouldn't recommend it, as it's a potential safety hazard. Or you can series batteries to create 4.
