Re: Typical Internal Resistance of 18650 Pack

The <38mOhm value for one cell I used is for 1kHz AC, for DC it's more like 50mOhm, and MOSFET resistance of the BMS could also be about 10mOhm and it was a bit cold so I guess everything is fine. Are you not using a BMS for this battery and do you also measure it (voltage sag) divided by (battery a...

Thanks for the info! What cells do you use in your 16s12p pack?

Re: Typical Internal Resistance of 18650 Pack

I did not build the pack myself, so unfortunately there are no fotos. I was just asking if anybody can post the internal resistance of his pack. If I assume an internal resistance of 38mOhm (lygte-info.dk writes <38mOhm), so for a 14S10P pack combined cell resistance would be 58mOhm. The resistance ...

Re: Typical Internal Resistance of 18650 Pack

Of course there is no typical voltage for all 18650 packs. I am just asking if there are typical values for certain packs (like 13s5p mj1 or 14s5p GA or what ever) to see if it is normal that the internal resistance is 50% higher than the calculated value (without resistance of connections inside th...

Re: Typical Internal Resistance of 18650 Pack

My controller logs battery current and battery voltage. I am simply calculating it resistance = voltage sag divided by current. The 38mOhm was probably AC resistance. But shouldnt DC resistance be lower? Battery temperature was about 15 degrees Celsius. There was no significant difference between 90...

Typical Internal Resistance of 18650 Pack

When calculating internal resistance of my 14S10P Sanyo GA pack based on voltage drop it is around 90-95mOhm. I read that the internal resistance of one GA cell should be <38mOhms, so I expected the internal resistance to be 14/10*38mOhm + 5mOhm (wire resistance) = <58mOhm. Are the 35mOhms caused by...

Do you think a sandwich (plate of hard material - foam - plate of hard material) has any advantages over just hard material outside and foam inside?

Re: Hub Motor out of true

It is "buckled" (out of true). Maybe 1mm at the spoke flange. It sits perfect inside the dropouts and is fixed by torque arms on both sides (connected to IS2000 mount on the left, and to a thread I cut into the frame on the right) The cover screws are only M4, so they should only be tighte...

Re: Hub Motor out of true

The problem is not the brake disc. The motor itself is not turning round, which caused the rim, the brake disc and the flywheel to be out of true. I checked it by holding the end of a zip tie to the spoke flange on the side where I have spoke elbows inside. I put the Statorade directly onto the roto...

Hub Motor out of true

On a 45mm magnet 3kw motor (very similar to mxus 3k), I have yesterday removed the right cover, added some more Statorade, and then reinstalled the right cover with silicone sealant. After that the motor was a bit out of true. Less than a millimeter on the spoke flange, but I had to retrue the rim a...

Battery Crash Protection

On one bike I have a large triangle battery inside a frame bag. Crash protection should be light and not too wide, so knees won't touch the frame bag while pedaling. At the moment I am using a 6mm yoga mat on both sides. Knees don't rub on the frame bag while pedaling, but it is really close. And th...

Re: Alternative to Domino Throttle

I have used two brass thread inserts to repair the thread. Quite simple and now and it is as tight on the handlebar is it should.
Just need to drill out the holes and melt the thread inserts in with a soldering iron (remove all tin from the tip before)

Alternative to Domino Throttle

Are the any other good quality throttles?
The feeling and controllability of the Domino is great. Unfortunately it needs quite some space, gets damaged by crashes easily and the thread is made of plastic. Also I don’t need the integrated switch it has.

Re: Rear Derailleur Compatibilty for 5speed

Domino throttle and thumb throttle for regen are on the right and I dont want to change that, so the shifter has to be on the left. There are non-index grip shifters for the left (at least they say that on the ebay description) but I dont know if cable length would be okay. I will probably try that....

Re: Rear Derailleur Compatibilty for 5speed

Thanks, I think that’s the best option.
Did anybody already try if 3speed (non-index or converted to non-index :D ) twist grip shifters for front derailleurs would work with a 5speed rear derailleur?

Re: Rear Derailleur Compatibilty for 5speed

Sorry, I confused friction shifter with grip shifter. What I have already on one bike is a non-index friction (thumb) shifter. What I would like to try is a twist grip shifter.

Rear Derailleur Compatibilty for 5speed

When using a 5speed freewheel cassette on a big rear hub motor, with which rear derailleurs can it be combined?
Is a 7/8 speed or even 9speed derailleur fine, or does it have to be a 5speed derailleur from the 70s?
