I have not had a chance yet to use any of the new prismatic LifeBatt cells. i'll be interested to hear of your experience.
i have used the exact same AA-power BMS with my LifeBatt 10Ah(Green PSI) and 14Ah(Silver Headway) cells though. in general the BMS worked well. i still have a couple of boards that i use and i sold 3 of the 24V 40A version of the boards to Ypedal. I believe that Ypedal was also using these with his Green PSI 10Ah cells.
my only complaint with this BMS is that the balance current of 50mA is far too low. that limit id set by that bank of 12 x 75R resistors along the right side of the board. I paralleled a 68R resistor with each of those to increase the balance current to 100mA.
at 100mA it was far easier to keep the packs balanced. especially with the Headway cells.
