If you are running any number packs in parallel with each other, they need to be matched in voltage (is using all identical modules, that means matching the number of modules). If running any number of packs in series with each other, it doesn't matter if they have different numbers of modules or cells in series, as long as they have the same number in parallel.I finally got some batteries. I bought 6 just in case I want to upgrade to an ac-51 or hyper 9.
now I need to find a bms, charger, dc/dc converter and a cooling system. I’m thinking of going with the Orion bms but only because if it’s compatibility with the Curtis controller.
I was thinking of putting 3 modules on top of the motor and 2 where the gas tank was. Not sure if that’s a bad idea. I heard that splitting the pack uneven can cause problems but I’ve seen it done before. I’ll do some more research on that. If it’s true I’ll have to find a way to stuff 5 modules up front.
Too bad my controller can’t handle all 6.
3 up front and 3 in the back would be nice.
