I am still waiting to hear input from you guys on how long of wires I can use for the watt meter.
Obviously the shorter the better...

You joking right
...if you want to charge your packs in parallel...don't you think it might make sense to connect them in parallel? I guess not...OH haha thats right my bad your a Kiwi i keep forgetting
boards...i connect two packs in series (make sure packs are perfectly balanced
) so i have a 22v 10ah packs, then i take the balance taps from one of the 22v packs and plug them into the GGooodrum
parallel adapter board (call it board A
)... I then take the second parallel adapter board(call it board B
) and the balance tap from the other 22v pack and plug it in to the adapter board(Board B
)...do the same with remaining packs until you have filled all the spots on the parallel adapter board. You then take the discharge leads. positive and negative...and group all positives together and all negatives together i.e you parallel them! If you wish to charge them in bulk you simply plug in a charger capable of 50v. To balance, hook your balancer to the balancing taps coming from the parallel adapter boards. Couldnt be simpler, you will know when you plug the wrong wires where though, you get melted wires with a simultaneous FLASH and lots of blackened fingers (KFF)
