First I have to say that this a great community with a lot of useful topics! I found a lot of asnwers by searching on forum, but still can't consider what components I need to use for basic setup.
I have to mount a single 12.8/90v Victron Energy LiFePo4 battery (BAT512900400 1152Wh) with BMS interface cables. The documentation of the battery states that the battery have cell balancing integrated and I'm confused if I should use a BMS with a single battery setup or I can go without.
I have recently bought a DC2DC charger of another brand with alternator charger and solar MPPT controller integrated. It have a low temperature protection, voltage sensing relay for connecting to alternator, can charger engine battery if the service battery is already charged from solar and other useful features.
The things that are not clear is the following:
1. Should I use one Battery protect for discharge line from battery to the campervan (I will not have an inverter) to cut of battery when certain voltage is reached or battery will cut of by itself?
2. Is the battery cut its charge or I have to install battery protect on the incoming/charging line.
3. Should I use a BMS with a single battery setup?
