I have multiple configuration with my lipo battery, from 37V to 100V. And I have 4s and 5s lipo I put in serie and parallel.
I don't know how a standard meanwell can ever cater for that, and I can't buy so many of them.
cwah, how is your specific BMSBattery charger going to cater for that??? Please explain how you will do this?
How "cheap" & "flexible" is this to do? Explain the details, please...

Really? You say you have a Hyperion charger. Use the same Meanwell you reference above to charge this lipo. You have the solution already!
Use Hyperion w/Meanwell.

Explain the details of that "flexibility" & "cheaper" beyond rhetorical theory to your actual application in use now.

Time is money/savings too. The highly efficient charger I recommend will save you time & money too. I want to charge fast time-wise AND efficiently too. I also don't want to waste time & more money with higher failure rate, lower quality "crap" w/o a 5 year warranty too.
IMO, your method of charging is much more expensive overall, and you've given no real world use/proof of greater flexibility too other than "on paper" that is not your actual usage or better alternatives. IMO.
