Hey guys, in this post I'll show you how to make an LI-ION battery pack that we have used for our Homemade professional transmitter which you can check HERE. And also I will show you how to charge the battery using BMS. Below you will find the list of components that you will need not this project.

List of components

3.7V LI-ion battery (2000 - 4000 mAH or more) x 3      LINK HERE
BMS ( 3S, 20A)                                                                LINK HERE
Boost converter                                                                 LINK HERE

Battery connection

First of all, you need to connect the battery like this. I have soldered the wires to the battery to make the connection.

Li-ion battery connections


Here is how the battery looks like after all the connections. Note that I have used tape to stick all the batteries together and also I kept the balancer wire parts.

To charge this battery, you need to connect the balancer wires of the battery to the BMS as shown in the circuit below.

Then you need to connect a boost converter to the input of the BMS to boost the voltage to 12.6 V as the BMS works with this voltage. If you have a 9 - 12 V charger adapter, make sure to boost it to 12.6V.

This setup will protect your battery from overcharging and avoid your battery from damage.

Hope this helps you guys Enjoy!
