Re: Lifepo4 pack charging

Have bottom balance them all and charged them up in strings of 4x 4 times. And then bottom balanced final time at 2.85 v. At each stage let them rest for 4 hours then check resistance on all cells. Just bringing them up to final running voltage. Then test full drive line at 134v

Cherrs for the advice

Re: Battery Pack Tools App launch promo

Needs a bigger data base of cells on the Market, maybe add a custom menu to add your own cell type . Search function needed in the cell type takes so long to scroll to find correct cell.

Report should be able to veiw in pdf for printing.
