Ninebot S2 with DIY battery packs???here my reasoning to how to...

6 posts in this topic

hi to all, my first post, my first EUC....... and i bought from amazon ITALY a ninebot S2.

why the s2? because i read that it has 2 batteries under 160w and i COULD bring it on a plane...... and because i APPRECIATE external batteries instead of built in.

As a flashlight enthusiast.. and everything about batteries etc, i find that one person could build by itself a batetry pack, am i wrong?

THis model should use 2x batteries and each one should be of 15 x18650 batteries. right?

i also supose that the FINAL CONFIGURATION should a 15s2p battery ( both packs) so it should be relatively safe, i read that the voltage is 54,3 (medium voltage nominal) so i can think it is 54,3 / 15 batteries = 3,62v that's the CLASSIC VOLTAGE of a 18650 lithium

in fact the WALL CHARGER is rated for 63volt...........so it can charge 15series of 18650.

My idea would be to use 4x of these holders sku_103855_2.jpg

(of course minus 1 battery to be 15 of total) and buymyself 15x 18650 batteries , the connection cables should not be a problem i think, but my only one CONCERN, is how to CALIBRATE 15 batteries!!!

i know that there are balance cables but i know they reach at max 8x batetries in series, and there are hobby chargers that can handle up to 6x balanced batteries in series.

So could someone say me how is made the charging cirtuit of a EUC ?? how could it properly balance 15 batteries in series ? maybe... he uses 5x 3 blocks of cells to be balanced.. i don't know.

or maybe..............they NEVER BALANCE THE ENTIRE PACK.... but doing so the overall life of it will decrease over time.....

Welcome & much fun with your EUC!

This COULD was quite some time ago - by now most airplanes refuse transport of EUC's, hoverboards, etc... No matter if with or without battery...

That's absolutely not recommended - they cannot stand the necessary current and every contact failure lets your S2 stop immedeately.

EUC's normally use a BMS which has the charge "control" - the charger itself is just a current source up to max cell voltage and then a constant voltage source.

?Some?/The BMS have/has a balancing circuit integrated, which gets active in the last phase of the charging process (once the charger delivers the constant max voltage and current dropped below a certain threshold (somwhere around ~100mA?))

Right but you need to have an original NINEBOT 15S BMS if you want you battery will be recognize by your wheel.

This is an example for the charging circuit (C+ and C-) with a 16S BMS (it's the same for a 15S BMS) and power circuit (P+ and P-)

Each cell (or group of parallel cells) are balanced individually. In this case only over charge protection is active (and it's safe).

thank you for all the infos... 

but the most important thing atm is learn to ride it XD

yes First you have to learn and Second you need capacity in order to have more fun
