Hi all,

Very new to the world of electronics but due to the scare of the 'hoverboards' I've been doing some research.

The battery the chinese produce is a 36V 4.4Ah, 20 cells.
They include this 'protection board', can you tell from the pictures if it has a balancing module?
As far as I understand, limited knowledge here by the way, you'd need to make sure the cells are balanced to avoid any overcharge or overdischarge. Right? Or does it not matter?

Thanks in advance

hi there
welcome :)

it would be really great if you could provide links to this board.
nothing is readable from the board ... component types etc

You can probably tell by how many connections it makes to the battery. To do cell balancing, it would have to connect between each pair of cells in series.
