So, I have a used super soco ts1200r, and the battery is 50% used up. I am thinking of doing a DIY pack, any advice? I have built battery packs before and know how to solder, so this isnt an issue. I wonder if I use the BMS and plug hardware in the old battery if everything would be fine? I plan on making a pack with more cells so that I have more AH, Im thinking somewhere in the 40-50 AH range, this way I will have way way more range per charge. thanks to all that have any advice/warnings before I get started on this project!
so nobody has tried building a DIY battery for their super soco? Thats surprising considering how expensive they are...
Hi. I am interested on making a better battery for my ts1200r as well.
How much will you spend building it?
How long did you use your battery before getting it to that 50%?
All third-party batteries have so seen so far has been connected in series with the original battery, no one seems to have succeeded in copying the BMS or the identification that the original battery provides.
Isn't it better to just open the original battery and change to new cells?
Then you build one more battery that can fit beside and parallel them, if you destroy the original's BMS then your smoked!
Original inside with BMS;
How the parallel battery connects;
It is ordinary 18650 lithium cells of good qality inside (LG/Samsung), no Lifepo4:s
One stock battery for TC/30AH reviewed on another forum has 153 LG cells(LGGBMH11865) inside.
Configuration 17s9p can be read on the BMS;
Aliexpress has a lot of good battery sellers, and cheap! Has bought several batterys there - always secure that you get good quality cells from Japan instead och cheap chineese ones, use to be options in some better stores there.
My electrical Oset trial bike, conveted to Litium (48v 20Ah) and some examples of batterys with quality cells;
