    But, that is to interface the BMS with Victron (soon more inverters), so once the gogga has bitten you, and you want to interface ... you learn very quickly how easy it actually is.

    As a matter of interest what 220v chargers are you using for your lithium batteries, the ones I can find that are suitable are 5amp. Seems rather light in power.

    If the question is directed at me, I don't have any chargers bar the Victron inverters, using solar power.

    I've never looked for a lithium battery charger, for when I looked for lead acid charger years ago, they where very expensive, the ones with big amp capability.

    It was a general question but thanks for replying nonetheless, I am thinking of a Victron IP65 10amp which should be enough for a typical overlanding cycle for just under R2.5k

    If you mean Lithiumbatteriessa.co.za (Bain), then no, he sells rebranded Daly BMS's........
    Rock band indeed, sorry, my bad made in the haste to assist you.

    You did not specify that re-branded BMS's are not acceptable?

    I bought the 15 amp one (Victron IP65) fron AME Power Solutions for about R2250, end last year. Montana Park 012 5477715. Had to replace my 7 amp CTek
