Hmm, I have often thought not needing a BMS would be cool, I wonder how well a capacitor voltage transformer would work?

Charge em all parallel to 3.2 volts then controller switch to series for a voltage jump.

LoL

Sorry my electrical knowledge is limited but that sounds kinda cool, would discharge rate be the same regardless of drawing or loading capacitors??

What if you had multiple banks of capacitors which switched to a series setup when fully loaded circulating?

Talking out of my ass a bit but food for thought....
That was a LoL, I was talking out of my arse. Not sure how you would rig up a set of massive caps that could handle hundreds of amps in a series parallel setup to multiply 4000amps of 3.2v into 200amps at 64v

Contactors wouldn't last very long that way and you would need lots of them. :)
