Hello. I am in the planning phase of building my first efoil, and I need some help deciding on battery pack.
I’m considering buying 50 pcs Lii-70A 32700 LiFePO4 cells and build a 16S3P pack myself. The cells a rated at 30A continuously and this guy tested then with a full discharge at 30A in free air. I am not sure if this corresponds to 80-100A continuously (limited by VESC) when enclosed in a waterproof pack. The total energy corresponds to 1.5kWh.
My build will also consist of a Flipsky 65161 motor(not sure about the kv, and propeller yet) and 75200 VESC
Will this be enough power to push me out of the water to get foiling? (I’m 72kg + equipment)
How long ride time can I expect from a pack this size? (I know there are many factors to this )
Should I worry about overheating the nickel strips connecting the batteries?
