I have a few questions about charging Lithium Ion Batteries aka a collection of cells...im learnin...lol
1) I am looking to setup 14x18650 cells to make a 51.8v module in series. I know I need its best to use a BMS (purchased). I also got a smart charger that is designed to charge 14s modules. Can I use both at the same time? Or will they interfere with each other?
2) The charger in question is 52v but it is also rated at 3A. Am I missing something. I understand that to charge a 14s you would basically do 4.2v x 14 = 58.8v. But I thought in this case you would only charge it at standard amps of in this case 2.2A / 2 = 1A? Wont 3 amps be way over?
This project is for learning mostly so I am not planning to use this in real "production" capacity.
Thank you for your assistance!
