Re: Right settings for regenerative charge ?

to be safe you could put charge current at 6amps (6amps x 72v=432watts of regen braking) what would electric brake phase current be? 10amps??? Thanks a lot for your reply goatman, so how did you get to 6 or 10 amps ? Is there a calculation behind it or is it just by feeling or experience ? 6 batter...

Re: Self-Discharge UPDATE On 30Q 141 Cells

i dont follow the general consensus of discharging a cell at low amps will increase its lifecycle, the majority yes but not all 30Q and 40T are different than others take a look at my testing 30Q and 40T are the only cells ive found that like to continuously cycle, other cell cells will lose half th...

Re: Right settings for regenerative charge ?

It means that the BMS would not be limiting current during regen, so you have to protect the battery yourself by choosing a reasonable charging current, based on the cell specs and pack configuration. But i'm realy hard trying to find out what "reasonable charging current" means or even w...

Re: 40T, neodymium magnets, plasti dip cycle test

10mm magnets work fine for 21700 and 26650 batteries but 18650 the positive button is 8mm-diameter and 10mm width is a bit too wide for the cell holders i figured the copper tape is 0.04mm and the distance between cells is only 1/2 inch, i wanted to do a test before ordering more magnets. the magnet...

Re: "desulfate" 40T and 30Q and VTC6 and P42a

i hear exactly what youre saying desulfating does something to the discharge curve and brings back capacity for about 50 cycles so when you had the self discharging cells it was the perfect opportunity to see what happens when you desulfate them i dont know the history of the cells other than the pa...

1/4 inch tinned copper braid i think can handle 30amps
wouldnt be hard to slide a magnet inside it

i can do bulk testing within reason with my battery tester or ebike if i want to do 1s5p, i discharge and charge at 3amps(0.6amps/cell) in 11 hours can do an entire bike pack in 11hrs heres 5p of 30Q-136 at 1.97v, i can charge/discharge/charge (4.2v/2.5v/4.2v) in about 16hrs IMG_20210223_081939.jpg ...

my battery guy has 300- 30Q from faulty packs, i agreed to buy 80 from him to try the "desulfate" thing on them.
ill be able to share the results,
if it works ill buy all of them

Re: Manual balance discharge device?

i use salvaged cells, no bms you could bottom balance your cells to 3.0v then charge to what would be 4.10v/p-group 13s@4.1v would be 53.3v when the pack is fully charged at 53.3v the top end voltages might be slightly different like a 0.15v spread write the voltages down and use it for a week and r...
