G1 Electric Skateboard Mod
Here are some pics of my G1 mod.
Added new 36 volt controller.
Currently using 3 12Volt 4.5 Ah SLA batts,
but will soon be trying out 2 18 volt LiFePO4 batts from Dewalt packs.
The big button is now a throttle kille switch.
I reduced the spring tension of the throttle, so it doesnt spring back,
I like it that way, so I can keep a constant speed without holding it in place.
very nice mod! how fast does it go at 28v and 36v? can the stock controller handle upto 36v?
I own a E-Skateboard, recently bought on Ebay from Justpal a seller that has a bunch of them and is lowering the price cause nobody is buying i guess.
As previously mentioned this is very similar or maybe the same as a G1-2000 from WTFF. The specs on the "E" say 120W and 200w or 220w for the G1. I'm not
sure if the motor is different or they just play with numbers. My "E" had bad batteries and i had to call justpal about 10 times to get working ones. The
replacements sent were pulled from another unit. This "E" is of very cheap quality, some parts fell off right the first week. So far I had replaced
the deck for a 7 ply wood deck, the switch and i'm running without a controller (as some wires on it burned). Here is my question: what are the functions of the controller? So far I know
1.- it will delay power to motor once the switch is pressed; 2.- It wont send power to motor if battery voltage is ~20v . Besides these is there another function
for it that anyone knows. My batteries are being charged straight from the 30v AC adapter, my new switch connects the 2 batteries to the motor and power is
sent right away which I don't mind except for when i added 2 more batteries for a total of 4 batteries. By the way i'm new to this community group and really
enjoy and appreciate all the hands on experience shared here.
