Re: LIPO charging voltage BMS charger

Get 900 watts charger instead, as for current as amperage pumping into the lipo pack usually maximum 1C means 20 ah x 1C =20amp. Although, I don't recommend charging in series E.g. 12S and these are asking for trouble. I usually charging in parallel 4S (I also run on 12S 20Ah using 4S LiPo) and it's...

Re: update on > 45mph ebike after 4500 miles

iChargers has the IR testing feature built-in (Not 100% accuracy but maybe 90% accuracy) and it's pretty good one. That's how i caught my old 5s LiPo pack started dying and my iCharger showed over 200 IR ohms. If someone wants more accuracy IR testing then get this http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/sho...
