Yeah - that story is the epitome of "that dog won't hunt". The capacitors and inductors required to have a "good" charging circuit are TEENY !

Yes, it IS a more complicated circuit when your balancing MANY cells, often not in a strict "all parallel or all series" arrangement as is almost always the case . . . another Shorai "story".

ANY lithium cell, once significantly drained is permanently compromised. It's chemistry (or physics, if you prefer).

Me, I ride Anti-Gravity batteries after a failure of a Shorai after just 6 weeks . . .
