This may seem like an idiotic question, but Im really curious, hell, I NEED TO KNOW! How do you balance 4 cells, in a 4p pack? Because, from what I can see of how a balance circuit is set up. And knowing how to make a battery pack. I cant see how a balancer can tell, or for that matter affect the state of charge in any single cell, in a paralell configuration. I am building a full 24s4p setup right now. two parts 12s4p one on each side of bike. And am planning to setup all my packs 12s with balancers, and hook into parallel after so I can do a full balance charge weekly.
One balance wire to pos side, one to neg side of each parallel set. How can the sensors tell which cell is in what state, and how can the balancer achive any single cell adjustment? God I must be a dork! I cant see it without some isolation diodes and crap. If you want to get the most of the pack, and maintian it properly, you NEED to balance it regularly dont ya? Is it properly balanced if once connected in parallel, the cells never get single cell attention?
Please, talk to me!
