LFP LiFePo4 BMS, Batteries, etc Links

Victron
Victron VE.Bus BMS
Used with Victron LFP Batteries which have all the sensors built in.
VE.Bus to BMS 12-200 alternator control cable
Skylla-i remote on-off cable
Use this cable to connect a Skylla-i to a VE.Bus BMS. The VE.Bus BMS will then disable the Skylla-i charger when the batteries are fully charged.

BMS Overview

Pitfalls of buying Lithium Batteries
BMS for Lithium Batteries
Lithium Chargers from the Alternator - Sterling B2B 30a, 60a, 120a, Balmar MC-614
12V 200A EV BMS (Battery Management System) For 4 Lithium LiFePO4 Battery Packs in Series (4S)

Why our Batteries are better - Bright Star
CALB Batteries
Reliability - For 400ah @12v take 4 each 100 Ah cells and connect them in series to get 12.8 volts and 100 Ah. Make 4 of those, then wire them together into a parallel matrix. If one of the cells in this matrix pack ever got weak or failed you would lose 25% of your run time but your voltage will still be at 12.8 volts so that your load will see the voltage it requires to run properly. reliability will go up with a percentage of the series strings placed in the matrix.

If you need LiFePO4 batteries in a short delivery time your cost will be about $1.34 per Ah when shipped by air freight to your address. If you can wait for about 8 weeks your cost for ocean shipping will be about $1.20 per Ah, FOB Long Beach port of entry.

Well I am not going to find every one for you, but this is one of them


Battery Management System - Evlithium
Read down around the 5th page, where the values can be set.


Also Orion Jr BMS all the settings are adjustible in the setup program.

There are others.
