First of all 14 x 12 volt optimas = 168 volts. 44 * 3.2 volt TS = 140 volts. Hope that is not an issue.Aloha, all. Please advise me what to buy or materials to use and where to get it for installing my 44 x 200ah (160ah case) TS cells that I am installing to get rid of the 14 lead optimas in my Toy Yaris.
Interconnecting bars are available where you bought your batteries I expect.1: I currently have 10xoptimas in the rear and will put 22 TS 200's there. What ready made - to + straps do I need and where to buy-OR-what materials and gauge, tools, etc. do i use to make them?
How do you get 80volts and 50 amps? I suspect both numbers are low....???? Go to your local welding supply store and buy 2/0 welding cable and lugs with suitable hole sizes for connections. You may need to borrow/rent/buy a crimper.I will be charging 22 cells at a time, 22 in back and 22 in front. And want one charging point in rear. What size charging wire do I need to run from back to front to carry [email protected] max? #8, 6?
As above...2/0 welding cable.2: What gauge wire do i need to join the front and rear pack? (I probably already have it though for the current lead)
Just confused about your pack voltage and expected current draw. You should expect several hundred amps to get rolling and then perhaps as low as 50 for maintaining lower speeds. 80 volts??3: In front I will have 11 cells just behind the bumper and 11 cells up near the firewall.
