I'm with you 100 %. And am developing a BMS. Thanks for your precautionary advice. I look forward to perfecting a BMS, because now I am using just a very small portion of the Li battery. I want to stay away from the extremes of the S curve.
Great website. I'm doing a project powering a dancing man off of an 8 cell Li battery pack. The cells are 160 a hrs, and I am woindering about some of the settings on the charge controller. Not sure about the Instructables interface.
So the questions are about some voltages, Specifically equalize,boost and float voltages. I know these apply to lead batteries, The charge controller is prompting for these values, I have the overvoltage disconnect set to 27 volts, as I do not want to get into the part of the charge curve where it ramps up steeply at end of charge voltages, I am not using a BMS yet.
