  • New to the electric game!

    Hi Folks,
    picked up an electric ESR hoverboard and would love to get back into the GoPed love again. I use to rock a Gsr40tsi that I regret selling to this very day. Moved out to the east coast and got my hands on a decent goped from the marketplace. Any recommendations for a charger, and potential replacements for lithium batteries. As the ones on the ped seem shot. Thank you again.

    Replacement Lithium is an ongoing discussion. Batteryspace does have the exact units for around $4XX. https://www.batteryspace.com/Custom-...-90A-rate.aspx

    I recommend the satiator charger as you can adjust the voltage and current charging depending on what you want to do. I've read that charging LiPo @ 85% can double the cell cycle life.

      You can check other thread in the forum but I've yet to try the new drone batteries that are a lower voltage but available on Amazon.

          I actually messaged goped directly and was told about the new Lipo4 that they have last 3x as long. But I would have to add a new spacer, kit etc. Randy has been super helpful. Seem like I have a Gen 3 according to him.

          however, being able to plug and play would be really nice. This is an interesting toss up lol.

            The LiFePO4 chemistry has at least 4x cycle count of the LiPo. I don't have the direct source of that chemistry but there are similar sellers around.

              I cut open medical batteries to create some similar LiFePO4 units from K2 battery cells. Still does not have enough amperage to support the ESR. The LiPo batteries can support upgraded motors like the Torkinator.

                My post with Amazon links to other LiPo options got flagged and awaiting mod to release to post.

                  Oddly enough the LiPo4 batteries he has on the site are cheaper than the ones I have now.
                  Is that right?

                    The LiPo supports 100A+ which is crazy high. I forget the LiFePO4 specs but for stock motor they work well and have good cycle life. They are a good option.

                      I wouldn't mind giving the regular ones a whirl. Would that charger you recommended work for both batteries. Im on their website and they have different chargers based of the A rating.

                        I would definitely want some consistent power since I would like to hook up my go-wagon to it from time to time.

                          That charger works for so many batteries. I use them to charge 12v cells and also up to 72v. There is different "speed" levels of charging based upon the highest voltage you will use. I am in no rush so I went with 5A max speed so I can do 72v. But you might be happier with say 10A or other if you want things charged faster.

                            I can attest to LiFePO4 cells will work well with the stock motor and weight. Do you have a black casing motor or the silver? The black case with go wagon could be much hauling weight up hills.

                              My casing seems like it is silver. There aren't many hills here where i live, so that could be a non issue.
