40T vs 50E batteries?


Recommended Posts

As you know, ewheels has been offering Samsung 40T batteries for newer Begode wheels such as T4 and MTen4. Ewheels says that the nominal capacity is lower but the range difference is less than 5%. Does anyone have experience with the 40T batteries? Is the range really almost as good as 50E?

FWIW, on a KS22... Wrong Way got 10% less range, going 10% slower, with a street tire/40T combo vs knobby/standard battery combo in his range test (time stamped start...)

Thanks this was very helpful!

The more amps you pull the smaller the range difference. So larger packs = 50E. Smaller packs = 40T. 

But most importantly, safety, follows the same rule.

I’m only worried about whether the 50e is more likely to combust. I read that ewheels’ hypothesis is that begode equipment pushes the batteries harder and that’s what is making them more likely to start a fire.  Since 40T can be pushed harder, does that make it a safer choice (less likely to burn) for Begode wheels?

That's true. But running 50E cells in a Sherman Max is not riskier than 40T in lets say an RS.

It is possible to sweat the 40T cells. It's just less likely. And putting them in large packs where the current never really goes high (per cell) is pretty pointless.
