Jehu has gone to selling and really needs to get a handle on nomenclature. I watched several hours now and there’s an amazing amount of misinformation. Now Micah is a completely different story. Quite amazing really. Everyone that wants to learn really should have his battery book.
Several vendors with claims to be selling high quality BMS have been shown to be malarkey. In the kit world.
The new Bluetooth BMS are a huge leap forward. Making trouble shooting and proper charging much easier with accurate data.
