Hifei Capacitor Bank with connections for running Parallel battery packs. Includes 8mm Bullet Connectors & Anti Spark Point for Brushless Esc's.
This capacitor board was designed to simplify the installation of Parallel Battery packs and esc's with 2 sets of battery wires. Simply solder the two sets of esc wires to the capacitor board tabs(see second picture). Then solder the included 8mm plugs to your two batteries.This is far easier then you having to make a special harness for the parallel packs.
63 volt Capacitors. Recommended for up to 14s Maximum.
It is generally reported that capacitor failures can be attributed to:
1) Heating, causing a capacitor to swell and explode.
2) Drying of the liquid electrolytic inside from various causes, such as defects, leaking and even cleaning.
3) Capacitors re-form over time to meet a usual and expected voltage. Surges that are not normal can cause sudden failure.
4) The older they get the greater the incidence of failure.
5)High-current motor setup will tend to kill the caps quickly (because of the large voltage changes).
WARNING: If any capacitors seem to bulge, start to deform, leak or pop, stop using them IMMEDIATELY!!! If Capacitors fail they can explode and cause injury.
Instructions for Anti Spark Point: First, to connect battery negative connector to negative connector on the board, then put battery positive battery connector on the anti-spark point for 3 to 5 seconds, then immediately plug battery positive connector to positive connector on the board.
