BMS lead connectors is there a industry standard?
Are all the 8 pin connectors that come with a 7s BMS the same as in there is a industry standard? I bought a cell tester and 3 of the pins don't match. I just need to know if it is a bad tester the pins misaligned or just the cheapo BMS harness.

From my experience with 7s bms's connectors come in different spacing(pitches?) some are 2.54 mm some are 2.00 mm. I don't believe there is an Industry standard. 2.54mm is what many testers use. I have a couple 7s bms with what appears to be an even smaller pitch something like 1.5 mm

Also rc testers are designed for rc hobby, many rc batteries are charged with a rc balance charger. So no need for balancing with a bms.

The DIY Powerwall community has borrowed many tools from the RC community.
