The battery connection idea is a very simple and common “Y-cable” one, but all the connections are hidden inside the battery, so you only need to connect 2 plugs. Do not forget that you MUST equalize voltage of the batteries before joining them. The simplest way to equalize voltages is to fully charge batteries, so their voltages are near 41-42V. The boat battery is equipped with a Xiaomi-compatible round charge plug, so you can easily charge it by your original Xiaomi charger.
The battery is protected by a 15A common port Daly BMS with balancing. There is an extra protection stage by a 15A car fuse, which can be easily replaced.
There are 20 pieces of 18650 cells inside the battery, which provide about 6500-7000 mAh of capacity. Since the original M365/1S/Mi3 batteries are 7800 mAh, the boat battery grants about 80% extra range. Since the original M187/Essential batteries are 5200 mAh, the boat battery grants about 130% extra range. We use high quality branded cells.
The boat battery body is milled of a solid HDPE plastic sheet, which provides great durability. There is also a 1 mm steel sheet inside for extra cells protection.

1. Fully charge the scooter as usual
