Not quite your usual 'EV' but I am trying to soup up my battery powered lawn mower. The long and short of it, can I run 36V or 48V through my 24V lawn mower with any reliability / safety?
I have done a bit of reading on the issues with excess heat dissipation and potential 'runaway conditions' but I still don't really understand when it is feasible to put more volts into a DC motor.
I believe the motor with no load (but a blade) spins at around 3200RPM. I'm curious to see if I can't increase that a bit. The other thing is, how would this affect the battery performance? I am using 12V 20ah SLA batteries, connected in series for the required voltage.
Hope this is not too much of a 'newbie' post... but ya know, I'm a newbie!
