Lithionics balancing question


Recommended Posts

Hi all. We have Solar Pro package with 3 batteries. Our trailer is currently stored and not connected to shore power. Since we haven't used trailer since mid-July, I turned off solar and have been letting the batteries draw down. I checked SOC today and battery 1 is at 66%, battery 2 is at 33%, and battery 3 is at 45%. Should the batteries balance more effectively and be closer in percentages?

It takes a few full charge cycles to get the cells to balance, they talk about this in the Lithionics manual, have you been following their guidelines? How many cycles (charged to 100%) have yours had since you got the trailer?

I have Battle Borns, and they only balance (between batteries and between cells) when they are at 100% state of charge and they sit for a while. I think that is typical for this type of cell.
