I’m building a 10s3p battery pack, with its own el-cheapo chinese BMS.
I don’t fully trust the thing, so I’d like to monitor the cells myself with this cell meter .
Here is the kicker : that cell-meter doesn’t support 10s. So I’d like to make two clusters of 5s to plug in the meter.
The question is : Do I need to physically separate my 10s pack into two 5s packs (break the serial connections) for this to work ? Or can I just have the negative terminal on the cell reader be the 5th cell in series (positive of the 5th, or negative of the 6th), in order to get a reading on cells 6 through 10 ?
