I’m trying my best to get this season of esk8ing started, but as it is my first time using a proper anti spark switch, I am a bit confused.
I soldered some XT-90s to Flier anti spark switch and connected it to my 10s battery which has been sitting at 36.3 volts since autumn. After connecting the switch I turned it on by twisting SW+ and SW- wires together. I decided to measure voltage in the other end to see if it worked and to my surprise the multimeter read 33.4V.
Is my surprise justified? Is it normal to have the voltage drop by nearly 10% after it goes through the switch? If not, what could be the cause? I looked for similar experiences in the forum, but couldn’t find any.
I included a “diagram” of my setup and what numbers I got when measured at different spots in the system.
If something is not clear, ask away.
