Bob,

You'll be pleased to know the basic electronics and related are already out there for what you want to do. The challenge is putting all the pieces together.

Sounds like you need some 18650 or 26650 batteries, a 3S battery management board with balance, a DPDTCO switch and a 12V, or higher, power source along with a Qi Standard wireless charging arrangement.

Would also recommend a voltage regulator to maintain consistent voltage and performance as batteries deplete and their voltage drops off. You may lose 10% or so in efficiency, but my experience is, given the powerful batteries we have today, it is well worth it and I would not assemble any future engines without a step-up or step-down voltage regulator.

Another nice thing about induction charging is that you can weatherproof the system for outdoor use.

Keep the faith...

Dan
