What is a 12S Battery?
This tutorial is a brief tutorial on how to program your TORQUE ESC based upon the VESC® Open Source Project.
You would need a 12S Battery Pack using LIthium Ion (18650 Li-Ion) or Lithium Polymer (LiPo) battery cells.
Battery voltage at 12S should be the following:
A 12S Battery Pack at nominal voltage which is 3.7v * 12S = 44.4 volts.
A 12S Battery Pack at peak voltage which is 4.2v * 12S = 50.4 volts.
18650 Lithium Ion are typically custom or pre-built battery packs. Our Electric Skateboard Battery packs are built from many individual 18650 lithium ion cells.
Lithium Polymer or LiPo battery packs are typically RC LiPo Battery packs which can typically be purchased from RC type websites.
18650 Lithium Ion and Lithium Polymer batteries have the same voltage. You can read more about these type of batteries in our battery articles.
HOW TO PROGRAM USING 6S BATTERY VOLTAGE
This tutorial will require the following parts.
1. 12S Battery Voltage
2. 6355 190KV Motor or 6374 190KV Motor
A 12S Battery with our 6355 190KV Motor, 6374 190KV Motor should allow you to ride up to 30-35mph top speed.
