Just finished up the carbon/kevlar enclosure mounted permanently straight to the frame of my Klein Mantra for my new LiPo pack and man... It's a little on the tight side of my "precise" measurements, I really don't want to ever have to take the batts outta there and risk anything.
Especially after my previous bright idea of using FOIL lined dollar bin lunch boxes to protect my optional reserve pack that still had bullets on it ended up in a flaming, smelly, welded ball of Chinese imports.
I am currently living off gird and have 2S2P (hehe, first time I get say it like that) of 6v Trojan T-105s charged by a 460W solar array. I have been charging 14S3P and broken down packs to parallel charge 15S3P on my beloved Hyperion on this 12v set up but.... Now that I am moving up to a 15S5P pack, the appeals of bulk charging are becoming more *painfully* apparent...
I was wondering what your ideal set up would be to bulk charge from a 12v power source, while prioritizing protecting my homestead's power supply. I have available a relay driver hooked up to a dedicated relay as a LVD / over temp and a various breakers and fuses to protect the circuit, but I am out of ideas for cheep, reliable, safe (ish), and preferable voltage adjustable components to step up the voltage to bulk charge from 12v.
Thanks to everyone on endless sphere who shares their knowledge, experiences and time! My bike is built 100% from lurking on this site, only downside is getting more crazy ideas and power thirst... Ive been riding my steed for a month and I can't help planning a new build...
