Also my Skycharger says V type LIFEPO4. The FULL RIVER cells are not going to work right ?
Also I do not see where the bullet plugs go to the charger. How would I hook my 6S charger to it if it did work ?
I will read more but I like to keep things simple. I figured out without reading all those posts that my LiPo charger don't have a function for balancing LIFEPO4. Instead of reading posts I was reading the Skycharger manual and playing with the buttons.
DA. reminds me of my math teacher my last year of college back in 06. This guy would be showing a math problem on the chalkboard and I would be getting to the point where I almost got it or just starting to understand it and then he would go and show a different way to do it which would use twice as much chalk and I was done. CLASS OVER !! , and could not learn another thing until I got to the math lab after class.
There may be such a thing as being too smart because then most people cant understand it. I just want to order a 60 pack of FULL RIVER batteries and follow a simple wiring diagram to hook up a cheap BMS to 6 LIFEPO4 cells in series. I will charge and run all the packs with bullet plugs as Dan sent me a bunch of them.
I just cannot seem to figure out if my wiring diagram is right. I will go back and read a few more of the posts but do not see any diagrams. Sometimes I need to copy things to comprehend them. Just studying it wont work for me. If I copy it and change it so i see it clearer it helps it sink in.
This is a classic example of what I just said. I did not like the diagram on the left (bottom pic) so I changed it. I am now at the stage I was in math class starting to absorb the general idea of what is going on. Those guys on that post and DA are too far ahead of me so it would be like missing three math classes and coming back to class clueless as to what is going on.
I notice that most LIFEPO4 packs come with the BMS attached to the pack. I do not see why people would want to carry around the BMS when riding. Also when the cells fail you have to replace them so it seems like more work. I prefer to keep the BMS right next to the charger and plug it in with bullets just like LiPo. A pre - hook up cable between connections and can combine two 6S packs in parallel then in series to two other packs.
I think though I might be able to wire up a parallel series BMS. A single BMS to 12 cells. Two rows of six. I just need to look at the diagram.
It appears that the 48 volt unit is cheaper than the 6S unit however I do not own a 48 volt charger.
