For large capacity battery banks, several balancers can be connected in parallel. Two balancers are required for a 36 V battery bank and three for a 48 V bank.

- What is the maximum battery capacity (Ah) that can be connected to a battery balancer?
A balancer can equalise about 5-10 strings of new batteries, but the more strings connected, the longer the battery equalisation will take.
For heavy battery use, one balancer should be used per 5 strings.
- Can I also connect this balancer to lithium batteries (LiFePO4)?
Lithium batteries usually have a battery management system (BMS) with an integrated balancer. Therefore, no additional balancer is needed.
