I am looking at purchasing a Chevy Volt battery to power a (slightly suped-up) go-kart I am working on. I have the ability to either buy an entire Chevy Volt battery with factory BMS
or go with the SIMP BMS
or even go down the path of integrating the Batrium Watchmon 5.
I am planning on having a Raspberry Pi display show some basic stats (because why not) from the BMS; however, I am assuming the BMS would handle the rest. I also have a Siemens US2 VersiCharge that I was "gifted" by a friend I would like to try and charge the whole apprentice.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. I have been buried in these forums for days! Great stuff but a lot to consume.
