Charging with a Orion 24/12-25A DC-DC converter?

Can I use my Orion 24/12-25A DC-DC converter to charger a LiFePO4 batter with built in BMS.?

If so, would i just adjust the output to 14.4V

just having the same topic. No, your ‘none smart’ Orion has to be set to the float voltage of your lithium battery, 13.6 or 13.7V in my case. The simple none BT Orion wont stop charging when battery is full. Not sure if constant 14.1 or in my case 14.6V would damage the battery, or if the BMS acts. There are more expensive ‘smart’ Orions that can do two stage charging for lithium. In my case I want 70A and I rather stay with 13.7V and don’t get it charged all the way up, extends life span of lithium battery too
