How to Create Circuit Boards for the Low Cost BMS
This article walks you through how to make the circuit boards (PCBs) for the Low Cost BMS.
The Low Cost BMS
The Low Cost BMS is an open-source design for a battery management system. You can build this BMS yourself to monitor cells within your homemade battery. It will take you some time to do, and you may have to learn a bit along the way, but it will be cheap!
