Electric Skate modulable DIY with battery selector

Hi again¡

Today I’m bringing my best project by the moment, my modulable electric skateboard.

Nowadays there a tons and tons of electric longboard , and tons and tons of  DIY projects of electric skateboard, so why this one should be interesting? because as all my projects, something original that you haven’t seen before and new are in there,… mmm and what is this? let me explain it:

1- It is modulable¡ what it means? It mean that there are two specific and important parts that you can move and use in other electric skate. In my skate only the gears and the motor are always joined to the skate. By one side, we have the part of the ESC, voltimeters, selector, switches, etc and in the other side, two batteries.  you can remove this parts easily and use it in other skate with an electrical motor mounted.

2- Battery selector. Single or serial.  The electrical parts have 2 selectors with two positions. Deppending that how it is switched you can obtain:

Pos1-Pos1: Power OFF             // Pos1-Pos2: Works only the right battery

Ps2-Ps2: Only the left battery // Ps2-Ps1: Serial mode, two batteries working together.

And you don’t have to buy batteries and do all the electrical stuff for both, you can swap it easily depending that the use that you need or the kind of journey.

2– The battery selector allows you chose more autonomy or more power, it is super interesting because you can choose in one click more speed or more kilometers.
