Currently in my setup I have an 8s1p lipo battery pack made of two 4s lipo packs. I have made two of these batteries, and realized I could easily buy another of the 4s batteries and make a 10s2p lipo build. However, before doing this I have a few questions.
My plan was to do something like this with the last battery…
…and wire two of the cells to each of the 8s battery packs I already have. Wire the two new 10s packs in parallel, then hook everything up to a BMS for charging.
I understand BesTech makes the best BMS’s, but for some reason I am having a hard time finding where to buy them. So here are my questions:
-Is BMS even the best option for charging here? I would prefer not to buy a whole new charger t accommodate a 10s battery. -Where do I buy a suitable BMS for this? Is BesTech really the best for this purpose? -Has anyone else done this yet? I have seen @Namasaki do a 10s1p version. But has anyone done a 10s2p? -Should I even disassemble the the 5th pack? Is there a better way to wire it without taking it all apart?
