Hey guys, so while I was making my new battery, a couple of questions were raised up.
- If I’m using 0.2 nickel strips to connect the groups - would that be enough, or should I use 10 AWG wire instead and just solder it on the top? (See the photo below)
In addition to that, I’m planning to divide the battery into two parts (6s +6s =12s) and connect these two parts using 10 -12 AWG wire. (I’m dividing it in order to fit it in the enclosure that I will make using my vacuum former)
So, the final battery layout (without bms wires would look something like that:
- I’m very confused in terms of the connection of my BMS since the BMS has a separate charging port, and I’m planning to do a BMS bypass and leave it only for battery balancing and charging. (example of my BMS below)
After a bit of consulting and googling, I guess I have to follow this schematic (below) and connect the wires (that will go to the ESC) straight to the battery. But I’m ABSOLUTELY not sure about that and need help!
So if there is anyone who had experience with building their battery/working with separate port bms/ knows ANYTHING about it - can you please help me out?)
Thank you in advance!
(P.S - Sorry for tagging you in @LeonCamero ! It’s just you helped me out on the matter of bms and charger before, so I thought you maybe know what to do about these issues? )
