Series battery monitors?

#1

If im hooking up two 6s packs in series for a 12s setup and want battery monitors on each pack would this be the correct way to set up?


#2

Yes that should be fine.
Just make sure the two monitors you have can be configured for 6s packs.

Cool, thanks! Also building on that, I’m looking for a good way to switch between a series configuration attached to the VESC and a parallel config hooked up to a charging port. As far as I can tell the only good way to accomplish this is by using 2x DPDT switches toggling each pack between a series or parallel adapter. Unless anyone can recommend a good 4PDT switch for this application?

Check out @Dunkirk 's build (Vanguard Orange | 10s | SK3 I VESC) He made a pretty clever solution to charge in parallel but discharge in series.
