This battery pack consists of VariCore cells and the slim BMS, as popularized by the Mk VI. It also has a USB module and is padded.
This battery was created after a long hiatus of summer 2020 heat (and adjustment to COVID lockdown life) which made the garage workshop unbearable for working on battery projects.
Created: October 30, 2020.
Cells: VariCore 32700 6Ah 3.2v LiFePO4.
BMS: 4S 100A 12.8V BMS Balance Protection PCB Board (a.k.a. “small thin 100A”).
New since last make: None, based on Mk VII minus the balance leads.
Current Owner: K8TSG Jason.
