Home made electric wheelchair build any advice on motors batteries or anything appreciated? Answered
Hi (newbie) Im thinking of building my own electric wheelchair and have a few questions.
When wiring multiple batteries to the motor controller, is it possible to (for example) if having 9 batteries, wire them in groups of three.
So have three sets of three. Three in parallel, wired to be three groups in series. Therefore i could use three switches to be able to turn off some of the batteries. Reason for this is so that if going slowly i could have more control.
Also i was thinking of differential steering with maybe two Etek motors, they would power the front wheels due to the torque (potential flipping). Any ideas how many batteries and the best type to use (extreme speed needed lol).
Other ideas of potential motors, any advice or knowledge greatly received
