I am currently developing a BMS which features some exciting stuff and want some design input from you guys.
- Nano size: 21703.6mm.
- 5-16s configurable via PCwritetool.
- Balance current: 45mA .
- Super affordable $20+.
- Balancing led indicator.
- 15A charge current.
Nowadays, VESC comes with integrated power switch, therefore a traditional BMS with discharge control is really redundant and even dangerous, cause it may decouples the battery from the ESC when the regenerative current kicks hard and trigger the OV protection in the BMS, some cheap Asian BMS amazon has been reported to be unreliable, I have some experience in designing BMS ,that’s why I am starting this Nano16s project.
Now I have made the first version of it and sent it to SMT, samples be available in end of May
