You get to keep your room cool and save $.02 per discharge. ...at one discharge every day for a year.. You have now saved $7/year plus any gain from not running AC.
hillzofvalp wrote:So it essentially lets you discharge closer to the 200W charge rating of the charger? aka 130W is what you were seeing after regen losses (instead of 30W)? That's actually extremely useful. Let me dig through the hyperion manual for that one..
update: NO. Unfortunately not. But I just posted on a 275 page thread re: Hyperion chargers/support on regroups.

hillzofvalp wrote:Cool. So what's special about the net mode? How is it different from hitting charge start on both chargers with a split pack? Just automation? Do they become more balanced than .01V?

El_Steak wrote:You can charge the whole pack in series without disconnecting anything, not even the controller (use separate leads for the chargers). However you need a separate isolated powersupply for each charger (meanwells work fine) and you can't use the "network balancing feature" (you have to press start charge on both charger). As long as both chargers are configured identically, you should get all your cells balanced to within 0.01V. I've been doing it for a year and it works perfectly on a 24s3p pack.

In this setup, one lead would be shared between chargers: the middle break between 20S. Is there a short circuit doing this? I do not see how there could be. The balance connectors also share the same thing.
