A cleaner way to drive

How I maintain the LiFePO4 battery cells on a monthly basis.



Key things to remember:
1. DO NOT keep the cell log 8s connected permanently (even if switched off), each pin will draw different amps from the cells.  Some random sampling suggested a range of 2 mA to 790mA.  This doesn’t seem like much draw, but over time, it will eventually cause your pack to go out of balance!.

2. You must calibrate the cell logs the first time with an accurate multimeter (For my MR2, I bought a digital multimeter 22-812 from radio shack $70)

Here is a link to the cell log 8′s.
