Charge and discharge 18650 packs
I would like to know what would be the best method/charger to charge my 4s12p pack. The pack is made of all 18650 cells.  I would like to know what the total capacity of the pack will be and the best way to charge it moving forward.  I am not sure if something like an icharger x6 would be my best option.

I believe this has been asked multiple times. Also, the FAQ contains the maths involved in finding out the capacity of the cells, the packs, and the strings.
Proceed with caution. Knowledge is Power! Literally! Cool

Logging on to this site does not point to any FAQ. Maybe as a service to new users, we could make it a bit clearer where newbies should look.

iCharger X6 would for sure be a great option to test your pack! Go for that if you have the money.
