I just read on rcgroups that throwing cells as distant in voltage as 50% is ok! that seems like a huge in rush current.
@Nordle I don’t see anything wrong with doing it if that’s the case but I’d like a second opinion as 50% difference in charge states being thrown together sounds like bad news.
but the wiring would be a huge pain and a plug that could handle such current would be huge.
Im still always on the hunt for an easy balancer if someone has an idea. (discharge balancer or maybe linear supply with 12 primary and secondary or maybe get away with 12 secondary and one primary, or 12 regulated switching supplies.
the goal is to balance solely with the balance leads and keep all the series connections intact
