I’m struggling to understand whether I should get an E-switch on my BMS*.
- The e-switch eliminates the need for constructing an antispark switch.
- One can solder a physical switch to the two ends of the e-switch, and when the switch is ON, the board is ON.
The con: My understanding is that the switch needs to be on for both charging and discharging.
For those with experience, do you not find this cumbersome?
- Charging should an issue of plugging the charger in, and not be coupled with turning on the rest of the components.
- Discharging (turning on the board) should be an issue of flipping a switch.
Why is this so complicated?
*I plan on ordering from Batterysupports, because their 60A 10S BMS is compact (10cm x 5cm). They offer e-switches by special request.
