After hours upon hours of reading, I am looking to make a custom 18650 Battery for my next build… So here you have it, if anyone wants to base a build on this go ahead… I did most of the dirty work
Does this look correct? You can thank word for the beautiful drawing…

Is there anything I am missing? I am not going to need an on/off switch because I am using the FVT esc and it has a built in switch…. right? Have any of you used either of the status indicators? How do you use it on the BMS I linked? Any improvements? Your help is always appreciated!
