Hi Philip,

I talked to Mark from Thunderstruck some months ago about their BMS, it is
a really nice equipment and very accessible on price. But I was unable to
use it since it was on its end of development stage by then.  But as
reference, I can 100% recommend their EVCC (Charge controller) which was
designed by the same team, if this helps.

On the other hand, I can tell Orion BMS is one of the best battery
management systems I've use so far. It is quite complicated to wire and
install the first time (I've installed several of them) but is Pro device,
really close to a car OEM BMS. And just for reference, I uploaded a 32min
YouTube video for a friend of the main wirings:

that helps, great!
