As a premium brand using only the best quality materials and construction techniques, we offer market-leading safety features in our Flitecells, which include:
Phase Change Material
This is used in our Explore battery, and will be used in our entire battery range for 2023. Phase Change Materials dramatically improves thermal management, increases safety, and longevity by absorbing heat from cells, especially a faulty cell.
Lowest Impedance Cells
Not all cells on the market offer the same safety profile. We use premium 21700 cells, that offer the lowest impedance on the market and highest current rating. This means our cells stay cooler than other cells, and are used well below their maximum operating thresholds for discharge and charging.
While our battery is fully waterproof and every battery is pressure tested before leaving the factory, the battery also resides inside a waterproof compartment in the board itself.
Advanced Battery Management System
Our Advanced Battery Management System is hard to beat for a swift, safe charge and consistent temperature control. BMS critical functions include: Balancing, Over-temperature (Charge / Discharge) Over-current, over-charge, over-discharge, short-circuit protection, reverse polarity, over-voltage, under-voltage and numerous other safety thresholds. Three levels of fusing adds redundancy for electronics failures.
Our battery compartment has a water resistance rating of IP67 and is the only marine battery on the market to include a sight glass allowing you to check for any water ingress for peace of mind.
Titanium Reinforced Strength and Durability
Titanium has the highest strength-to-density ratio of any metal. It’s strong and corrosion resistant; which is why we’ve used it to house our premium cells.
Whilst Fliteboarding, riders can monitor the temperature of the battery using the hand controller. In the unlikely event that the battery overheats, the BMS alerts the user as step one, and if the battery keeps getting hotter the BMS will shut off the battery.
