Harlequin2, my apologies for any confusion.
I was in no way refering to your BMS or your designs.
I was refering to the Volt Blocher sawickm mentioned & the 2 design options DJBecker brought up.
One about the fuse & one about about a safeguard to prevent a complete cell discharge. It may be something to think about.
The BMS I refered did not have those features & as a result a number of batteries in the US died. It was even sold by EV stores over there.
Don't get me wrong. I really want your system to be the one that works right.
There are so many that just don't make the grade.
