Ohhh, ok. Stuarts BMS. I thought you were designing and building your own Tongue

Yeah, Stuart has a pretty good one designed and fairly easy to follow what's going on.

I haven't seen any OS chargers, but would be nice see one. Altho, shouldn't be "too" difficult to design one. Basically similar to a switching psu and the current is controlled via the mcu.
