Recommended Posts

[Discussion split from the 3100Wh Monster thread]

Fingers crossed for a 21700 Nikola in time for spring!

It's likely that an 21700 1800Wh (1776Wh exact) 100V Nikola is easy to build with only two standard "block" battery packs in the usual designated spots (if the bigger cells really do fit like the old ones). It would be the 100V 21700 equivalent of the 18650 84V 1600Wh which just has a standard battery pack on each side, nothing special or complicated.

I say the chances are good because it's (most likely) easy and obvious to do this:)

So besides the 2x 900wh 21700 packs on both sides, there's still space on top to put an extra (for example 500wh or more?) pack👍🔝

Just in case any of you heard the rumours about Gotway using second hand 21700 cells, it is false, here the whole story:

@Afeez Kay If you would give us some photos of the new battery packs, that would be highly appreciated. How big they are, how they fit in the space designed for the slightly less narrow 18650 packs, just the packs in the wheel. Only one side panel opening needed;) I'm also wondering if your 21700 Nikola has the board on top or on the side.

your answer can be found in this video of me and the owner of Gotway..;) the board is at the bottom.

Hmmm... this embedded video does not play on Safari Mac or iOS for me.  I did manage to get the video URL which also was a not straightforward.  I was able to play this video through the direct url,  just to confirm I had already seen this one.  This might be a forum software issue, Anyone else having issues with the embedding?

Just tried on Safari and no issues. I generally use Chrome though.
