Maybe I should say, “Ends”. This is pretty much everything.
These are the EIG prismatic cells, here’s a spec sheet on the 20ah version. They’re awesome. Not quite as high as RC lipo in the discharge rate, but rock solid, safe, and long-lasting. And they come in modules.
Here’s the link to the module page.
And here, is one of my, well, friends. Who’s been working with them. And building a bike with them. AND HASN’T TOLD ME. Kyle, I’ve got BATTERY MODULES and YOU DON’T Ginaven.
Here’s his R6 with the modules laid out, except in a non-hot-swappable way.
…definitely promising. Also, fairly expensive.
I keep going around in circles. Here’s a factory-built good quality battery module with an integrated BMS in a workable form-factor for mounting four to six on a medium-sized motorcycle. However, they’re expensive, and the chemistry isn’t up to the 20-30C range I would like. And the chemistry isn’t really interchangeable. So it brings me back to the enclosure. Get a good enclosure system together with connectors and hardware for locking the modules in, and make it cell-agnostic. Then you can use the boxes to run any cell chemistry you can fit into them.
So yeah. The Quest continues…
