Not currently because it was to my understanding that the BMS is to manage the charging aspect of things. Also allowing you to keep everything in the enclosure rather than removing it all the time.
Currently I have the batteries connected to the FOCBOX. Inbetween the two is a fuse and XT90S anti spark loop key.
I’m wanting a BMS that I can use to charge the batteries so I don’t need to remove the enclosure. Plug a lead in and boom, it charges. Also have an on off switch to remove the antispark I currently have. But I also want to have a BMS I can use for the LiPo setup and then again for when I purchase the Li-Ion batteries to make my own pack. I to avoid paying for the BMS twice.
My understanding would be getting a 10s or 12s battery and splicing the additional wires into a single cell wire so it gathers the data that way. Because that’s all it’s doing, right? Grabbing the voltage reading to determine the max cut off. If I had a BMS that was suitable for a 12s setup then surely splicing the wires will be fine because it’s doing the exact same thing? The BMS would think those cells are exactly the same voltage.
Please correct me if I’m completely wrong!
