I have just purchased 2x 6s8000mah lipo, and are going for a 44v 8amp setup for my mac 6T.
But since I´m a total noob on Lipo´s I would really appreciate you opinions
To my batteries i was thinking of buying this:

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/stor ... _2pc_.html
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/stor ... itor_.html
I might not need the board, since I only have two bricks. Is the charging gonna take forever with this setup?
And what abou this for when putting the lipos in series and connecting it to the controller:

For when putting the lipos in series and connecting it to the controller, the controller is the 12 fet Infineon, i dont know which connection it uses, but then that is the only thing I need to change/solder manually? The controller is coming in the same bag as the lipos so the length os the harnes should`t be a problem?
Hope you have the time to help me, thanks, Mike.

You can consider doing a 1-plug charging setup, charging all 12 cells in series using a Hyperion 1420i charger/balancer like I did here...

The Hyperion 1420i charger/balancer costs more (of course) but it can charge up to 14s packs so no need to reconfig your battery leads to parallel every time youcharge / then reconfig back to series to discharge.

The 200W charger will work fine. Undo the series connection and charge the 2 bricks in parallel. Get a parallel charge cable, and a 6s parallel balance cable to do that, or a parallel charge board. The 200W charger should charge both those in ~2 hours from empty.

How much distance do you reckin theres is in the 8 amps?
I now it depends very much about the speed, im about 140 pounds in there are no hills, and its on a mac 7t??

In practice, you might want to consider less, so you don't discharge the pack down to where it gets more unbalanced, and costs you clycles. I like to say stop by 3.65v per cell.
Looking farward to see how the 7T performs

I think you should get a watt meter by Hobby king or a cycle analyst- they really help you learn about your batteries and you will not be a Noob after using them for a while, That charger is excellent as well, I have one,
bought almost two years ago charges up quickly.
Here is a link to the cheapest watt meter the Hobby king watt meter.
your really flying blind without one of these.

At first I did order the 6T from
a 7 turn? Where did you find one?. I know Cell_Man does 6, 8,10 and 12 turn. But a 7 turn, must be special.
