Building a worry free 24s balancing solution would be less that $100.
And the boards are small enough to fit on on the bike. Permanently install them, and never have to worry about checking the voltage of the packs again! (provided you use a VERY conservative LVC)
While it is possible to stack the balancers in order to balance a 32S pack (this is done by overlapping every 6th cell with 1st cell of the next balancer) The balancer was not designed to be left on all the time. It does draw power unevenly since it was designed to quickly balance and then be removed. It draws about 40ma between ground and the 2nd cell. Also note that dealing with large capacity batteries that are out of balance can generate a lot of heat as the balancer tries to level them.
Note: The firmware in our production models stop balancing when complete. There is a firmware upgrade that continually monitors and balances after completion. This has remained in beta although the code has proven stable because shipping units with the new code would cause incompatibly with our unmodified chargers out in the field. You can learn about this update here http://www.tmenet.com/forums/index.php?topic=318.0
In general I would say while this balancer with the latest firmware may work for you, it would not be ideal for your application.
Thank you for your recent order you placed with us. Unfortunately, this is not an item we sell and as a result we unable to fulfill your order. We listed another item via the SKU provided by the manufacturer and Amazon somehow linked it to this item. I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you.
