hi Stuart, hi guys,
First of all thank you so much for initiating this project. I’ve been reading up and following the DIYBMS for a while now. Very nice project!
I have an off-grid cabine in the mountains where I am building a solar/hydro fed battery bank out of 40 Ah Lithium titanate battery cells, pretty much similar to what @Ross has built. These cells have 20’000 cycle live time, don’t catch fire and have a wide temperature range, so they are perfect for me.
As is mentioned somewhere here, I’ll have to keep an eye out to not get too low on the voltage because of the microprocessors used (I’ll be operating between 2 and 2.8 Volts). Also, I’ll be using the alternative resistor values on the boards like @Ross 's.
I am absolutely new to PCB design and micro electronics. Now my question: Would it be possible to create a board version with an M8 through hole as a connector (similar to the batrium product)? This would allow for an extremely clean build.
