Li-po pouches will need to have enough space reserved (=wasted) for their famous "pop":

- that it will kill their energy density advantage. Also, it's much more significant fire hazard than hard-shell Li-ions.18650s, etc. have a valve under positive contact that breaks the circuit and releases gases, should the internal pressure increase.

So Aneta I'm guessing of the 3 options that come to mind you are 

1  A Google search engine zen master

2 An electrical engineer 

3 Have a photographic memory 

Either way you seem to have a depth of knowledge and a Lov of Math 😎

You're right. I totally forgot about this "feature". :thumbup:

I guess that we still have to wait for rechargeable fuel cells or smth... But that's obviously > 20 years away.

No because the individual cells are bigger. The energy density remains the same (energy per mass). The overall weight should remain the same.

Energy per internal mass is likely the same, but I would think three complete 18650 cells weigh more than two 21700s due to the amount of casings. No idea how much difference though.

Um, that's not good. If you are pushing the EUC there are already issues with heat and from my understanding that little computer fan blowing over the mosfet doesn't do enough. If you have a lot of heat coming from the battery pack, that will just make it worse.

The mainboard is always a good distance away from the batteries, and can handle the maximum temperature a healthy pack could get up to. I don’t think this will be of any concern.

I was quite happy to hear about a new MSX being in the works! It might be time for me to upgrade next summer anyway... :w00t2:

GW contact is being somewhat coy on this question: from what I'm told, they are 'repurposed', but before using, the cells are individually checked for IR & random sampling for capacity.

I think that regardless of used cell quality, the average number of cycles they went through MUST be revealed. Truth/transparency in advertising. It's an important consideration for the customers. Otherwise, car dealerships can sell cars with 30K miles on them as "new" because "they run great". A used cell is a used cell, period.

Totally agree. I would be super pi$$ed if my new wheel had used cells in it even though they may run to spec at the time of testing. It's particularly relevant if you buy a wheel and shortly after decide to fit an extra pack (as I may well do) with new cells. The original cells may have hundreds of cycles on them and at some point this will cause a problem with the new pack you have made.

You simply cannot sell something as 'new' when that product contains used items which have a limited cycle span. I am very much hoping that GW isn't doing this.

I am just getting excited for my new MsuperX 100volt that will be at my house Tuesday. I am coming up from a KingSong 14C, so this will be a huge improvement and I am very excited about the bigger pedals. By the way, shout out to Jason, he was kind enough to talk to me on the phone to help me decide between a Kingsong 18 xl, 16x and msuperx.

I went from a KS 14D to the MSX 100v. You're gonna love it!!  :efeeec645d:
