Can I power a motor with a higher voltage? Answered
I have a set of 56V Lithium Battery packs from an electric lawnmower and a 24V 600W scooter motor. I don't want to hack the packs apart because I'm hoping to be able to use off-the-shelf packs and chargers when the larger capacities come out.
Can I run these together with just a speed control and not needing an intermediary DC-DC converter? If not and I want to use the battery, should I run a 48V Kit or a 60V kit (over or under voltage)
