I'm new at this so apologize if this is a dumb question. The chargers you offer seem to be for batteries with BMS? vs balance chargers like the Hitec RDX1 AC/DC charger/discharger. Are these 2 totally different architectures or can you wire your pack to be either charged via the BMS or by a balance connector wire?

Or another question, can you use the Hitec to charge in either fashion (via BMS of balance connector wire)?

If a balance charge can be used for both scenarios, is Hitec a good one?

Thanks!

Sorry, 2nd paragraph should have read: "Or another question, can you use a balance charger to charge in either fashion (via BMS or balance connector wire)?"

Our chargers are meant for packs with BMSs. Balance chargers are generally used for packs without BMSs, when used in balance charge mode, though pretty much all decent balance chargers can also perform bulk charging, which is the type of charging used for packs with BMSs. However, most balance chargers don't go much higher than 20-30V, unlike bulk chargers which are generally capable of higher voltage without being prohibitively expensive.
