    Help identify this cell from "dewalt" battery

    Can anyone help identify this cell? It is out of a 2AH Dewalt battery pack. I am unsure if it was an original or knock off battery pack. Text from the side reads: C A TKU9RX8 107867 On the bottom it says: 5U04 thanks.

    Pack failure questions

    Just an update. Thanks for all your input. It's been running fine for almost a week now apart from 1 day where I switched off the inverter because it rained all day, even did a few load tests. Balancing nicely surprisingly. Points to take note, undersized fuse wire is as much a hazard as...

    Pack failure questions

    Sorry for the delay. Thanks for all the input. The pack hasn't seen more than 20 amps from the solar charge controllers and the inverter hasn't gone over 2300W.

    Fuses?!?

    You are correct, although the fuse probably should have blown. The idea of a fuse is to prevent fire in case of failure.

    Pack failure questions

    I had an interesting scenario, first about my power wall. It is 7S80P, made from cells ranging from 2.5AH down to 1.6AH because that's all I had. It has 2 MPT-7210A charge controllers, a 60A Chinesium BMS and a DC circuit breaker before the 6KWinverter. I charge the packs to 28.7V (7 x 4.1). It...

    2S (30A?) BMS for RC Car?

    A HSP rock crawler with a 540 34Tmotor. Yeah, you are right. I was hoping for a heavy duty BMS, but for now have a seperate charging port with the battery connected directly to the ESC. For anyone wondering li-ion powered RC cars are insanely awesome. :)
