Hey guys I have two motors each runnin on 45-50 amp so do I need a 90A - 100A bms ?
Yes. Or limit your bat max in each vesc
thanks, do oyu think this one is enough? https://www.ebay.de/itm/12S-80A-BMS-Protection-Balance-PCB-Board-LiFePo-Batterie/192714005554?hash=item2cdea65c32:g:SWQAAOSwEtRb4MeX:rk:1:pf:0
it´s for lifepo cells, you have them?
yes, but isnt there a cheaper way like a bms just for charging the lipos or am I wrong?
so you have lipos? You can charge them with a balance charger, so no bms needed. you can charge them with a charge only bms. I use a 100A fuse as back up instead of a ´bms for discharge. if you don´t need the e-swicth on the bms than that´s an option too. just depends on what you want and need.
yeah Iam charging them with a balance charger atm, but its anoying to open everything and connect everything and so on. Ive got an extra module for on/off switch so I think a charge only bms would be perfect. So I dont have to look for 100A bms right? Maybe sth like that?

theoretically yes. but still didn´t get if you use lipos or lifepo4 cells. you wrote lipos but the linked bms is for lifepo4 cells.
I´ll go in future with a charge only bluetoothe bms. It´s not much more expensive, but I can check each cells voltage via app and set the charge and blance volatage 0,1V under 100% full. with it I don´t overcharge the packs when i start driving with charged packs.
Oh sounds interesting I ll take a look about it.
have a look for smart bms on aliexpress or idk maybe also ebay. i have seen people here already use them, but unfortunatelly i don´t remember who it was
Edit: I will get this one soon
