DanGT86 said:Don't totally discount the idea of a BMS. A lot of times you start out with an ambitious goal of building a complex wiring setup and by the time you buy all the little adapters and connectors you end up at the same dollar amount than if you had just started with a BMS.
Yes, you continue to make valid points. I have been looking into BMS but again it mostly out of my understanding; but can now at least apply the knowledge I've been learning on how it relates to the balance leads, I also understand the difference between the LVA and BMS.
Would a BMS be sort of a one stop solution for my setup? Or would this be in addition to fuse, pre-charge (if I go this route) and Connector/Relay? I've found a 200A Connector + Fuse for about $60 due to wanting 200A Connector. Plus now looking at pre charge piece you mentioned for another $50 or so.
I see some 200a BMS that around around $120 -would that be all I need, just run my balance leads and this then becomes the main switch to the bike?
Will most likely go the route of Rynhardt's Oset as that seems to fit my needs for the time being, but if the cost is close for less pieces and offers some additional security; it may be worth researching more.
Photo is just for some color to my post. I'd be looking at a 200A with 20S minimum. Prob. be fine with 150.
