harlequin2 , could you clarify why Adam's charger is illegal? You mean its non isolated?

Regards the bms i'll be watching this thread with interest. As yet I have not seen a design that I would feel safe about having installed on my pack. Commercial or DIY. So far the best idea I have heard floated about involved wireless comms. Then that introduces its own set of issues. Round and round......

ianbartie , I too built the battery vehicle soceity bms. Seemed ok on the bench so I installed it in the car one morning. Lets just say it was back out by afternoon!
Now, Cole, when you shift the gear and that little needle on the ammeter goes into the red and reads 2000 Amps, that's bad.
