Hi guys - this forum looks sick! I’ve built one and two half diy electric skateboards and am excited to get started on my first electric foil board
I have 90 li-ion 18650 cells (2.9ah) and a vesc 6 that I WAS going to use for an electric skateboard but would like to use them on a foil board instead now. Do you think a 12s7p battery will be sufficient re. speed/torque/range? For an electric skateboard, that would be way overkill (range-wise). I read somewhere on this forum earlier today that 16ah will give roughly 50 mins of riding time
But based on the image of the battery of the Lift Foil on their website, it looks like they are running a 14s14p with 1 hour of ride time at 15 mph (I literally just counted the cells in the photo)… I dont mind buying more cells if necessary, but a 14s14p battery seems insanely huge! Plus if I go 14s I wont be able to use the vesc 6 I already have and my project will be a lot more expensive
Basically, I’m wondering if there is there some sort of a calculator/ standard to reference for range?
