Yes, but no on the "any" charger you want. Especially an older one without a auto shutoff when max voltage is reached.

Can you elaborate on the function(s) of the built in battery management system? I checked the website but couldn't find any details. Thanks.

Its basically just a simple cell balance circuit board, placed inside the battery case. It does not have over/under charge protection, so you still need to use a "smart charger"

As usual, the manufacturer oversells them as "BMS" battery management system, but a true BMS would have the protection circuit.

Just an FYI, I have a few Earth X left in my shop, but I'm sourcing a new manufacturer. I've had excellent luck and 0 known issues with them, but they didn't like my ADV discount so I won't be buying anymore from them. A real BMS protected battery is my goal. It would justify a higher price because it would truly be "idiot proof"

The technology is still awesome, and my first shrink wrapped unit has lasted 4+ years.

Would be interested in a true BMS unit.

Thanks for the detail!

Shorai doesn`t like the cold

Had my Shorai battery for 20,000 miles now. I love it except when it gets below 40F. At that temperature, I need some amps from someone else...

Holy shit. I'm so glad I subscribed to this thread.

I've had mine for about 13k now. And this past winter in Michigan was pretty darn cold. The battery was so problem free, I had totally forgot about it. But I was having so much trouble starting the bike in the code.

Never occurred to me that the battery was the weak point. Since it was new and I had such good luck cold starting with my other lithium battery.
