    Ballistic BMS Charger

    My Ballistic EVO2 8-cell LiFePO4 battery is completely discharged. On the off chance that it can be resuscitated, I would like to try to recharge it on a Ballistic EVO Pro Battery Management System charger. This attempts to give a balanced charge to the cell packs by using the BMS port on the battery and is probably the best bet for potential recovery. If anyone has one, or knows of a service shop that has one, it would be appreciated.

    If the battery is below a certain voltage chances are it's pooched.

    The BMS won't even touch it if it is below the threshold, but you can turn the charger to lead-acid mode and charge it past the minimum V, then switch back to Li-Fe.

    The BMS is a good charger, BUT it's actually an IMAX B6 under the ballistic sticker. You can get these much cheaper, BUT it might not come with the 4 cell balance cable, AND there are a lot of knock offs around.

    Why are people being so snarky with ABCarr? The poor guy is just trying to fix his bike. Jeebus, you'd think it was winter already with all the internet anger.

    How many volts are you getting on your pack OP? It's completely discharged it won't start the bike, or you are measuring 2 volts?

    didn't realize this was the same guy that had an accident and is struggling a bit
    you're right, he's been dumped on while asking reasonable questions

    You're right....it's identical to the IMAX B6AC. Heck of a markup Ballistic charges for that sticker. I looked on the Ballistic site to see if they sell the balance cable, but I don't see it (none of the IMAX vendors seem to include it). I should probably get a cheap multimeter to check things out.

    Unfortunately, it's pooched. Looks like Plan B is to try my OEM lead acid battery back in there.

    AGM is a good compromise, this is a good battery seller, free shipping
