The battery I'm considering is 36V 10AH LIFEPO4 Lithium Battery electric on Ebay at about $260.00.
I plan to use this on a home built board with my own deck and mountain board trucks and wheels. I see a lot of 36 volt motors that might work. What wattage is best. I'm thinking brushed motor to help keep cost down.

I realize these duct tape Chinese batteries have their risk.....

Thanks for any advice...

You should get about 1/2 hour of full-speed operation from a motor rated at 500 to 600 watts, with your proposed battery, if all components can handle the approximately 20 amp steady load. (Starting load, especially if starting on an UPHILL climb, may reach 40 amps or more)--Proper gear ratio will be important, as gearing for too much SPEED will increase current drawn.--Bob

Thanks - Thats just what I wanted to know.

Since you brought it up - How many teeth do you recommend I have on the little sprocket ? I suspect there are not a lot of choices - assuming that I use a chain to drive it.

Thanks for the great info!
