Re: Vector Typhoon finally

Nice build. I have the same frame. I also did a bunch of filing on mine as well to fit my QS205. I’m sure not all motors are the same spec so some may be a little bit thinner on their axle than others. Maybe that’s why it’s just a smidge too tight. I would rather have a tight fit though. Only pain w...

Re: Custom 5kW Vector (QS 205v3/Kelly/DNM)

My bad, mistype, I assumed it is SAYOON relay, not Sanyo. I keep an eye on these liitoKala 2660. I'm interested how these LittoKala 26650 behave in longer term. Oh. Yes. It’s a Sayoon. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190320/3c62f7f35d5d35f760da83c6d5a0d3a1.jpg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Re: Custom 5kW Vector (QS 205v3/Kelly/DNM)

Is tha Sanyo 60V 150A? Looks like the one but might be any. You are using circuit breaker and relay. Double protection. Have you installed diode on relay? There is magnet/electrical voltage spike when relay coil disengages therefore diode is required to protect controller. Not all controllers requi...

Re: Custom 5kW Vector (QS 205v3/Kelly/DNM)

Well it’s done. Just need to make me a bracket for the BMS to hang above the battery. Or I’ll just strap it to the battery maybe. I only took a few pics during the final stages as I was trying to get it done and forgot to document the last few steps. Pretty much folded the pack in half after I put o...

Re: Custom 5kW Vector (QS 205v3/Kelly/DNM)

The welder did awesome. A few sparks here and there...but I blame that on my application of the tips to the strips and maybe impurities in the strip. Other than that and always making sure a good charge was on the battery...welds went great. It has been flawless when battery is charged well and I ke...

Then I can solder to those strips without heat going dir...

Ah okay makes sense- I only have a small amount for testing since the cells are so damn expensive even from Aliexpress, ill probably just tape them together for my testing with BBSHD 1000w mid drive setup. They are 50a burst and only 20a cont. right? For my other project I just stuck with 300 cell ...

Re: Custom 5kW Vector (QS 205v3/Kelly/DNM)

Great to see some install DIY battery packs into Vector frames. I’m going for four hundred cells. However, battery containment is the issue. Cannot find anyone that’s already been there it’s to the metal fabricator. Geesh that’s a lot of batteries. That thing is gonna be heavy as heck. I already kn...

Thanks Tom. It’s been an adventure but fun of course. Learning a lot. Pretty sure I won’t ever build a battery again. So much time invested in it already.

Re: Custom 5kW Vector (QS 205v3/Kelly/DNM)

So the series connections take way more time than I expected. It’s a slow process but I don’t want it to look like crap or have an incident with this much energy in the batteries. Taking my time. I’m done with 6 of the packs. Hope to have them all done by the weekend still. But I’m pretty sure I’m g...

Re: Custom 5kW Vector (QS 205v3/Kelly/DNM)

Made me a block to assemble these easier. So much faster now. Almost done making the 7P packs. Then onto making two 10S packs so I can join them up and get to the BMS cable installation. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190305/b5f8e4c1aa898a8ee95214eb1a005380.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2...

Got me some .2mmx15mm nickel strip finally. Let’s hope it works out good. Got it from China and it’s pure nickel. Pretty good price as well. Now to finish this harbulary battery. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190303/d5466316a8c77e486c570745522459e1.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190303/...

Hi Pete, Where did you get your DC-DC 84v to 12v converter if you have already purchased it? and what is the output power? Thanks. Best regards, Pierre Pierre, here is what I got. It’s from eBay. It’s 15a so plenty for little led lighting and usb Charger for phone. I’m going to wire my horn to it a...

Re: Custom 5kW Vector (QS 205v3/Kelly/DNM)

Ordered my nickel strip from China. Time will tell if the purchase was worth it. It is a bit wider than most you can find. I found 15mm wide strips. That should help get more current through on the strips once spit welded on. It’s .2mm thick. Ordered 10 meters. Should be enough. We shall see. Says i...

Short from the long, 20” folder developed a crack, took the motor/wheel off fitted to the Vector, 52v 35Ah battery and the new charger @ 72v wouldn’t charge via the b...

Got the BMS working. Thanks to Tony (Vortecks) for his awesome app and BMS help.

Slow as hell of course....

Re: Custom 5kW Vector (QS 205v3/Kelly/DNM)

Sounds good to me. I'm constantly looking for new places to ride and wouldn't mind driving a bit for a good spot. Still getting the last few tasks on my bike done, took it out for a few rips and it ran well. This is also right by my house if you're interested. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEJyVt...

Re: Custom 5kW Vector (QS 205v3/Kelly/DNM)

Took a slow ride with my kid today. Did max 40 mph but average 12mph as my 11 year old has a regular mountain bike. Thought I would drain the 8aH battery but it was at 46% on our 9.5 mile trip. So not bad for a tiny battery. Still trying to figure out how to deal with my 26650 battery pack so it all...
