I'm powering my ME1003 motor with 4S 5Ah battery packs (http://goo.gl/cbvTm). The packs will be wired in parallel in threes, so I get 15Ah. And 5 of these paralleled packs will be put in series to make 14.8Vx5 = 74V (I know the nominal voltage is higher, but let's assume the battery packs are actually at 14.8V).

My question is, when it comes time to charge this, what do I do? The only solution I can think of is to have disconnects at the series connections and further parallel the paralleled packs so I have a 14.8V @ 75Ah battery pack I'm charging.

Does this make sense? This is going on a Kart. I'm trying to find some sort of solution where I can charge my entire pack without having to charge each of the paralleled packs one after another.

Any comments / suggestions / help would be awesome.
