Victron Battery Balancer Wiring for 48v Battery Bank ?

Hello there. I'm in need of some assistance with wiring the battery balancer with eight 12v 138ah lithium batteries. Currently the batteries are parallel series connected in my RV. I've paired them off as four 24v 276ah batteries first and then series connected the four sets of batteries. Hope that makes sense.

As I basically have created four 24v batteries from the eight 12v batteries, can't I just use the simple series wiring diagram that Victron provides vs the more complicated 48v series parallel wiring ?


Thanks

Can you give us a simple sketch how you wired the batteries?

What batteries do you have exactly? For the most lithium batteries it is not recommend to use the Victron battery balancer because the BMS should do that.
