Hello Pdove,
Any chance I could get a reprogram on my charger? It is an Elcon pfc 2500(I think from 2002. I could pay you cash money?? Thanks man. No worries if you got no intrest I understand. Just trying to get my electric car on the rode! already got some sweet lg chem batteries from Tom.
Thanks,
Jake

I got 8 2015 LG chem packs from a Chrysler Pacifica hybrid. 20.8 kwh. 2.6 kw pack.4.2v cells. 45ah cell.

any chance you could reprogram my Zivan Ng3? No worries if you only like elcons, I get that.

Nice. Thanks man. I got 8 packs. It is 16 cells in a pack. 16x8=128 cells total. So I do not need to reprogram this charger to get a specific charging algorithm. I can just adjust the parameters with the pot adjusters and plug it all together and go shred? Or am I missing something.

My car is a 144v system. Kinda just want to run 2s4p right now to keep it simple. If I plan on running two lg chem packs in series 57v x 2= 114v then 4 in parallel. (This is based on the voltage they are charged to when bought. These may charge to 67.2v however I am not positive yet still researching them. May have changed the cell chemistry from 2015 to 2017, but so far I have not found any evidence of a change 67.2vx 2 =134.2v. Still planning on reconfiguring my packs with a spot welder someday to get them to 144v in series but would like to drive it a bit on the road this summer.

If I set it up 2s4p for the meantime, Can I charge my batteries with my zivan ng3 with the maximum voltage pot set at 114v for safety and it will shut off keeping my batteries from over charging? I plan on having a bms hooked up when I try this. Not sure witch one I am going to buy. Probably should just get the spot welder first and get to the 144v nominal setting the motor is looking for.
