I have a 5’5’ Lift board but that’s it. I would love to have one of their battery cases as well, but with my own cells. Anybody know of any cases that would fit inside the board. The max height is 3.25" and the width/length is around 14x17". I’m having trouble finding any case that has such a low height.
Alternatively I’ll just build a case, but looking for the quick and easy option if possible!
You have the Mantafoils solution
PROS: similar professional look
CONS: 95mm high and 82.5mm for you
C1 only up to 14s12p (not the LIFT 14s14p)
C2 it is 8x more expensive than the above box.
C3 connector issue as LIFT uses custom ones
@SoEFoil I’ve seen the @Mantafoils box but yeah, it’s too tall by about 10mm. And the capacity is not quite as big as I’d like.
@tinp123@Thom Yep! I have a couple of those boxes already. Was going to just make some 12S or 13S smaller packs and run in parallel maybe. But most likely I’ll emulate @Flightjunkie and build a custom enclosure specifically for the Lift board.
I was just hoping ONE company in the world would make a box within those measurements! Nope!
My balance leads weren’t fused in my first battery and I had a balance plug short out on me. I was lucky to have it happen right in front of me. So, please guys…learn from my mistake and fuse the balance wires. Fuse everything! And only charge your battery in a fireproof enclosure!!!
I flooded the compartment on purpose as I always do during my water testing to test the boxes stayed dry. They did. I won’t have a hatch test until it’s in the water, but I always assume it’ll fail. Unfortunately my ESC box got water in it, so I’ve got to figure out what is happening there. I think it’s the trolling motor plug so I need to make some changes to that maybe. I have a few ESC boxes as backup!
