Shaq O'neal was in N.Y. in Central Park and he got to experience how fun it is to ride an electric skateboard.
I was wondering, is it possible to find any good 18650, that are commonly used for skateboards, in laptop batteries? By the commonly used I mean these (maybe some other 18650 possible?)
I want to make a 10S4P battery pack for a single 6354 motor, if it were necessary I could also make 10S5P, but I dont really need a pack of that size...
I have already takaen apart 3 packs and I found some LG and pannasonic cells, which are rated just for 6A continous...

Besides NKON, are there any other good suppliers of genuine 26650 cells?
Also, do you guys have any recommended cells to get? I'll most likely grab Efest 4200mAh ones for the 7S2P pack I'll be building..
Hi i am building this board with a 10S5P configuration.
I need a enclosure. and i found this. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2252464
I firstly though it would not be strong enough. But then i found this https://hobbyking.com/en_us/glass-fiber-cloth-450x1000mm-48g-m2-ultra-thin.html
And my question is. If i coat the 3d print with the glass fiber. Would the build be strong enough to place under my board?
Hi, I want to make my 6s2p battery pack.
This is my setup:
motor: sk3 5055-280kv ( 60A max )
ESC: X-Car Beast 120A
I thinking these specifications:
battery pack: 3.7V 5000mAh per cell, so 22.2V and 10Ah overall. ( AliExpress ? )
BMS: 6S 60A BMS charge/discharge ( https://goo.gl/A7G4nA - batterysupports.com )
charger: 25.2V 4A 6S charger ( https://goo.gl/K4L1KA - AliExpress )
I'm doing all right?
Thank you very much!
Yeah, don't think there is a forum category for this one but earlier tonight NYC eboarding squad was joined by Shaq. By joined, I mean he got on one of the eSk8 and rode with the squad lol!! Unfortunately no helmet seemed to fit him so not a safety promo video lol!
Im just experimenting with range, and am curious how much power I would get with two 3s 4000mah lipos in parallel instead of series. Im mainly trying to get range here while keeping the board as thin as possible and not spending a butt load of money on big bulky batteries.
So I'm running 2 4000mah 3s batteries in series and I get around 2ish miles before my battery checker doohickey tells me I have 35% left in the batteries (it plugs into the 6s balance cable port). I'm thinking abut going up to 4s or 5s 5000mah batteries but I want to make sure I can at least get 6 miles in distance as I need to get around campus at college. Thanks.
My budget is 580$ starting with nothing this is my parts list please give me some constructive criticism.

I've been lurking around the boards for a few months procrastinating about diving in and embarking on my first build. Well here it goes.
Background: I grew up skating and still you a standard kick-push skate deck as a commuter in NYC about 50% of the time. After discovering eSkates, I decided to back a board on kickstarter. After months and months of delays, I said "fuck this, I'm gonna build my own".
Goals: To build a fast, reliable board that has good range. You know, just the trifecta of a perfect board... hah. Honestly though, I just want something that will be fun to zip around on long joyrides mostly. I will likely use the smaller mass produced board as my daily commuter if it ever arrives.
Sidenote: This is my first build. I would love any feedback at all-- especially if something looks wrong. Below is the general plan. I still haven't thought about all the wiring needs in terms of what connections and what gauge wire (if anything needs to be changed?).
The Deck: Moose 36.5" Cruiser deck. 24" wheelbase. I really want something with a kicktail, but also with a decent wheelbase. This fits the bill.
The Motor: Torque 6374 190kv. Reason-- I think a 190kv is ideal for my battery setup...
The battery: 10s4p Samsung 25r li-ion pack, 77a BMS with eSwitch, battery percentage meter (not pictures) and 42v 2a charger to power this badboy. Thanks again @JLabs !
The trucks: Caliber Trucks Cal II 44° RKP
The Wheels: 83mm Longboard Flywheels Wheels + ABEC 7 Bearings. Decent affordable option. Thinking white...
The Motor Mount: Torque boards single drive mount for 63mm motor
The Motor Pulley Kit: DIY Electric Skateboard 36T ABEC Pulley Combo Kit. Question here: What belt length should I be looking at-- 255mm, 265mm, or 280mm?
The Remote: Nano V2 (group buy). My number 1 priortiy, riding in NYC, is safety. Is this a reliable remote? I can't afford a remote that will fling me off or cut out...
The VESC: Enertion VESC-X
The Enclousure: TBD. Open to suggestions. I'd like a clean, professional looking plastic enclousure.
Thanks for reading if you made it this far. I will be sure to keep this thread up to date as a means to share my build, keep myself accountable, and ask some questions along the way. So far I only have the battery, so I'm holding off on ordering my parts for a few days to see if I can kick up some feedback.
Building my first board this summer, I've already done a lot of research on what I need to get. Here's the list I've thrown together. Any advice on possible things I've missed, or something that doesn't seem right to you would be highly appreciated. Also things like better choices for mounts/motors/batteries would be great too.
I figured I would need to make my board pretty beefy as I am a heavier guy (6'2" 235lbs) and I want a lot of range so I want a mAh in the 10,000 range.

My vesc is 5 pins, and my motor is 6 pins? What is the easiest way to convert it to a 5 pin? Also I think my remote is broken, when I ride now it goes slow then full throttle all of a sudden then I let go and 5 seconds after I let go of the throttle it stops. Its the winning remote, I have had it for a while and dropped it many times. Any one have ideas?
Was wondering if anyone has a 6374 motor and motor mount for caliber ii trucks for sale. Was going to buy them straight off of some websites but wanted to ask here first to see if I can help anyone out.
I have issue rewarding this i have 4pc 3s 5000mah lipo i am connecting them in series to make 12s pack but the capacity will remain same but in parallel capacity will 4 Times so both will give me same range or diff . . Urgent help pls
Just a quick heads up that Hobbyking are having a 24 hour sale on batteries so if you are in the market for a lipo or 2 then it might be worth checking out.
i thought of using one of the car audio circut breaker 100amp with a anti spark system with momentary button.. total cost should be about $20 which is a cheap option
can anyone tell if this going to work out?
This is from my old board, have been using for 1.5 years. still working good. I am get use to bigger motor and bigger wheels now, So sell this out.
if you want more other E-board parts too,please feel free to contact me, I sell many new parts for building Eboard too. firstname.lastname@example.org

Its been a while since I did anything to my website, mostly it was just for my portfolio to brush up on web stuff.
but I feel like making something useful.
These were just using a basic plugin, I want to make a new one from scratch, probably with bootstrap and some js or something. But the question is of course, what does the perfect esk8 calculator need?
- Hill grade
- Save/download/upload config
- Price compare(eventually)
- Board Weight esimate?
Obviously you are the ones using it! so what do you think?
I currently have a 6s setup, soon to be 12s and am wondering if I need to adjust my gear ratio for this transition if the torque is affected by voltage. My intuition tells me it wont be but then I think this can't be true...
If this is not true then where does that extra energy go when hammering the throttle? As Voltage X Amps = Power
I'm looking at pulleys for the motor. I realize the Turnigy 6354 260kv motor doesn't have any notches for the screws of the pulley. What do you guys usually do?
If I simply tighten the screws very tight, assuming with locktight, should keep it from slipping?
Copper and silicon got a hold of me and won't let go!
I tell myself I can control it, just one(3) more!
but they are getting bigger! and all of you are enablers!
Oshpark is my dealer, and eagle cad the vessel.
Game Changers coming soon! hurry up digikey!
So, if I have a board that's 9 inches wide, I want firm trucks, riding on MBS all terrain wheels. What trucks would you recommend that I could get a motor mount for?
I would be using a 6364 245kv motor on a board with a kicktail.
Do I have wide options? Not sure what options I have with motor mount available.
Hi i was wondering if someone could help me with my setup.
i have bought 50 LG HE4 18650 cells. I plan to make them into a 10S configuration.
I have a 10S 60A BMS.
How should i arrange the cells. And what precautions should i use. Would it be good to use a fuse. If so where should i place it?
I plan on absolut max draw 50A. but i dont find i ever use that much.
Can i just make 10x packs with 5 cells in each and then connect the 5 cells in parrelel and then attach a XT60 connetor to the end of the cell and then connect all of the 10x 5 Cells. and remember to connect the ballance leads from the BMS?
Some factory-made electric skateboard can be charged directly from the power plug of our home ( EU in my case ).
Instead I have to take Lipo battery from the longboard and charge it with the Imax b6 charger ( or others ).
There's a way to avoid this intermediate steps and connect "power cable" from the e-skate directly into home socket?
I bought this car esc via ebay a long time ago.It has been sitting in my desk drawer waiting to be used, i wanted to make sure all the electronics worked and got a surprise. I made a short video, sorry for the shaky camera it eventually stops moving.I greatly appreciate all the help i can get.Thanks !

Ok, here's the spiel that I'm sure you've all read a dozen or so times...
New builder needs help because he has no idea what he's doing!!
Ok, I kinda know what I'm doing...but I don't want to waste money here! haha
I'm getting really close to being able to buy parts here, but I need some advice with the nitty gritty stuff.
The things that are glossed over in pretty much all builds I saw. Things like connectors, bearings, and pulleys/belts.
I think I have the big stuff sorted out but I'm willing to take advice!! To my knowledge everything here is compatible but I have no way to be sure.
And just because you guys have first hand experience with some of the parts I'm gonna tag you Hope you don't mind!
EDIT: Blah stuff I forgot to include
I'm ~170LBS I wanna go about 25-30 MPH and have good distance. And I'd like to keep everything slightly cheap. I'd say no more than 800USD if possible.
