That price seems to be about right.I have seen Shorai lithium batteries for dukati just for $170.
Is these batteries are good for long run.
Because, lithium batteries are small in size, having high power storage. LI-ion batterie are good but dangerous also.
Funny. I thought that post #6 was a question - so I answered it...Yes, like @john stated the battery technology is different for each application - batteries that explode and are used in those 2-wheeled powered skateboards - it's not a hoverboard for christ sake! - are most likely not Li-ion, its likely a LiPo or a LiFePo and are volatile if misused (charged or discharged faster than their C rating, brought below storage charge level or above max charge C rating, punctured, bent, abused)
There's absolutely nothing wrong with the rectangular Li-Ion batteries for our bikes, unless of course you short it, but ultimately you should follow the manufacturers directions on charging it before use if need be. Some batteries should be brought up to nominal voltage with a 1C charge rate and then installed.
In new models of hoverboard, UL certified Li-ion batteries are used.I want one of those Hoverboards!>
I want to ones from "Back to the Future".:nerd:
You need a specific lithium battery charger. Some charges allow you to select based on battery type.One question: Can I just swap a lithium battery? Do I need to tweak anything with the charger? Asking because coming from the R/C world I cannot charge a Li-Poly battery with a Ni-Mh charger.
