Well, it all depends on how fast your trying to charge it.


mom using 1 balancer, on a 280 ah bank at 24v and charging at 60 amps getting about a 0.5% midpoint variation.

I just bumped the charge rate up to 80 amps so I’ll report back when it’s done a cycle.

One Balancer.

And a midpoint connection between the two banks of the same size as the parallel links between the banks.
