In my opinion, BMS's are useless. I'd manually read voltage of each cell and discharge/charge as needed to balance.
Have you shared this advice with Tesla, Nissan, Chevy, Zero, Bosch, every laptop manufacturer, every cell phone manufacturer, etc.? If not, why are you withholding this wisdom from the world????
You're entirely valid! It's just my opinion, as a novice and non-professional. I'm really OCD with my cells and prefer to charge, discharge, and balance manually. It's not a hands-off solution. It's not easy or quick. Tesla, Nissan, Chevy, Zero, Bosch, every laptop manufacturer, etc. use BMS's to handle the average end user's abuse. Your sarcasm made me smile though.
