Balance feature on BMS or ImaxB6?
In the process of upgrade NiCd 18v dewalt pack with 18650. I will be following Dewalt 18v Li-Ion upgrade pack. From what i can see, the pack consist 5 cell wired 5s with there own BMS. The question I have is (1) wire it to have PCB managed balance and just supply power to the board or (2) have IMax control charging and balanceing. Option (2) would require an extra opening for balance leads. Either would work for me, but prefer the safer and practical route.

Open to other suggestions. More Ah would be great, but it would have to fit inside OEM form factor.

I have been harvesting and have a decent supply of Samsung 22F and LG (few differrnt version) lost if not all are 2200mAh. The harvested Cells came with 2s2p BMS (which I discarded).
