Repurpose Makita 18v battery packs
#5
You must check if the BMS does communicate with the tool/charger over data line. The packs I got send the charge state to the tool/charger and the tool/charger control charge or discharge. The packs themselves can't disconnect load. So if not used in a tool or charger of the manufacturer you could over- or overdischarge them wich would bring you much trouble. Damaged cells when overdischarge or maybe fire in case of charging. You need to be careful. You could check if there are any Tools for the packs wich only have two pins. Lights or fans for example. If yes the packs should be able to disconnect by them. Always be safe...
