Is a BMS backwards compatible? (lower V than max rating)


#1

I’m thinking about putting a BMS on my board to make charging easier. Right now I’ve got 1 6S lipo, but I may upgrade to 8s or 10s later. Can I get a 10s BMS and still use it with my 6s battery?

I don’t think you can. The balance port is for 10s so I don’t think it will worl. Maybe you could wire it up somehow so that some of the ports are used and some aren’t.

I would say no because that’s it only says 10s in the specs… Let me know how ur battery build goes! I’m in the process of mine!


#4

In that case I’ll probably just have to plan my battery upgrade more carefully.
