Is it necessary to install a battery management system for lead acid batteries?

I assembled a lead-acid battery pack with six cells. Is it possible to install a BMS on a lead-acid battery?

Yes, adding a battery management system for lead acid batteries is necessary. It can be used to:

  1. To prevent overcharging, over-discharging, and overheating, keep a close watch on essential battery metrics like voltage, current, and temperature.
  2. Some lead-acid battery packs may require equalization to ensure that the various battery cells have similar states of charge.
  3. The lead-acid battery BMS is responsible for regulating charging and discharging to enhance battery pack performance and lifespan, thus preventing overcharging and over-discharging.

However, be sure to select a BMS suitable for lead-acid batteries and follow the manufacturer’s installation and operating guidelines for proper installation and configuration.
