Enough power to haul my 100kg butt up Seattle hills
I started looking for a deck in December and came across a kaly xl-r combo deal that was too good to pass up. It bears resemblance to the flux which I enjoyed a lot and can fit a massive amount of cells.
Originally I planned to go the simple and clean route with the included PCB for a 20s8p configuration. However, at the time, my only options for an ESC were either the DV100 (out of stock) or the spintend
Luckily, @Skyart announced the SKP solo series, so 18s it is.
Since the decision to downgrade to 18s meant pcb would not work I had to find a way to fit more cells. Luckily there is just enough height inside the battery compartments to fit a staggered triple stack. An additional gasket will still be required because of the concave.
This cell outperforms both the Samsung 50S and BAK N21700CG-50 at 5A. At 10A the Samsung 50S beats this cell by a few percent but the M50LT still performs a touch better than N21700CG-50. This makes the LG M50LT one of the best performing 21700’s we can buy. I have not tested its cycle life yet though.
5A per cell at 18s11p is 3564W, this is more than enough for casual riding and I can pull up to 10692W at 15A/cell if needed and temps are good.
More will follow soon, all parts should be here by the end of the week.
Wow this one looks awesome. I am working on a similar build but planned to be 1214P of Samsung 50S, 4 x 7490 173 KV, quad SKP Solos and Finality AT 1:3. I definitely think these 5000 mAh cells are the way to go now especially for larger packs.
