I installed a 3rd-party battery management system and it worked! 😮
After melting down the BMS in a Soco battery AGAIN, instead of buying another of the same BMS, I opted for a 3rd-party board that's rated for more current than the original.
Its bought from YYBMS.com via AliExpress for just under $100US. The connectors are different from the original, so I had to do some detective work before plugging it in. The form factor is ALMOST identical to the original BMS, but some components prevent it from sliding into place; I had to clip off bits of plastic from the battery rack.
anyway, if you're good with electronics, this seems like a better and cheaper alternative to simply replacing a burned-out BMS.
Thank you for sharing! Next week I will receive my TC and the first thing is to expand the battery pack, after reading your post I might also change the BMS whilst I'm at it.
How did you burn out the original BMS (hot weather, going up steep hills, etc)?
50A... so 3kW finally. Do you know what Voltage and Amperage engine can take? I heard is rated fo 10kW
Hello there, I am currently putting the exact same BMS in a 72V TCMax battery. I have it open and everything is going fine, except there are more wires on the stock BMS than 3rd party.
As you have already installed one, would it be too much to ask you to post a wiring diagram or something to help me out.
It would be appreciated immensely.
