battery questions with Skybox

Post by Dforster »

I have a bank of 100ah ready to go, other than the BMS. have just a few questions.

1. is it safe to use without a bms until i get one? someone told me it was ok with lifepo4 with the skybox.
2. what specific settings do I use on the skybox? it is not straight forward to me yet..
3. is it ok to have a bank of 100ah and add another bank of 280's later on?
4. I"m planning to use 2awg cables about 5' long or less. I think this is ok for either the 100ah or 280ah pack.
5. i plato n order an 80 amp and a 200 amp bms for the 100ah and 280ah. are these about right?
