These are 10s4p lithium Battery Scooter packs (460Wh).  They contain 40 Panasonic NCR18650BD cells. Great for Building 36v battery packs as they are testing at least 95% capacity. Packs should have ~90% usable cells.

To learn how to use these packs it's important that you carefully read the instructions below.

Any voltage below 30v at the Discharge port is an indication that the BMS is hibernation mode. The Internal BMS can be turned on by applying voltage to the charging port (smaller cable). The battery pack will remain in the "ON" state for as long as it has a voltage of 30v or above and without a load.  Applying a load above 1A will cause the battery to shut 'OFF" after 5 seconds then remain off for 60 seconds, ON for 5 seconds, OFF for 60 seconds for an indefinite amount of cycles. Using this Arduino Controller connected to the blue cable will instruct the BMS to remain ON while under load. This activator dongle is recommended instead (includes Arduino) if you don't want to solder yourself.

Again, most of these battery packs are in hibernation mode, this means that even though the pack is resting at around 30v the output connector shows sometimes 1v to 15v. This means the MOSFETS in the BMS are off.

Scooter packs also available WITHOUT aluminum enclosure


How to use battery:

Step 1:  You have to charge the battery pack to 42v. Charge the battery using this new charger. (Or you can use any 10s charger like this, look for one with an XT90 male connector or you can swap whatever connector to the XT90:  Charger on AMAZON. Here is a charger you can order with the XT90 Male connector on Aliexpress). Once charged, some packs will automatically turn on, if yours turns on you can skip Step 2. Others will require you to...

Step 2:
 Bridge the negative pins on both connectors together using a jumper cable. You can also apply 42v to the small charging port and it will take the battery out of hibernation, you will need this small charging connector. If you don’t have the small charging connector you will have to cut the original connector and solder in your own connector. XT90 connectors work great here.

Step 3: Use our ready-to-use Activating Dongle to prevent the battery pack from turning off when you apply a load above 1 Amp. If you decide to DIY it and solder in your own Arduino controlleryou will need to get the male connectors since the scooter pack normally comes with female connectors attached.


To charge these batteries:

Charge the battery using this new charger.

For the following chargers you may need to add the XT connector yourself: 42v 2A charger to charge scooter batteries: https://amzn.to/2Ole3Ty / Quick Charge 36v 15A charger: https://amzn.to/3baODBg
