I've heard plenty of great reasons from folks here for using a BMS on the 20 cells in my XM-3500Li. But so far the BMS systems I've mainly been hearing about are home-builds. Suffice to say that my electronics skills are not nearly up to par as most folks here and finding the time to not only make something like that, but to learn enough to figure it all out as well is a tad more than I can handle at this moment.
So for those of us on the non-BMS side of things, what is the best way to use this Thundersky charger?
I'd seen a lot of discussion on the XM-2000 about making sure you unplugged the charger when it topped out the batteries. But this charger does that on its own... or it goes into some kind of "trickle charge" mode, whatever that may mean beyond what it seems to me it means. So, again remembering that I don't have a BMS to help me out on this, should I unplug the charger when it finally cuts off, or should I leave the charger connected whenever I'm charging up? Or should I just leave it connected for some extra amount of time after the initial cut-off?
