Hello,
I have made a 3S2P 18650 battery pack with a balance-charge BMS, and I was wondering how to charge the battery pack. I have a 19v 7.1a power supply and a 200w step-down board.
To how many volts do I need to set the step-down board and do I need to limit the current? Or the BMS will do the current limiting?

Maybe you have a protection circuit which is not a charger circuit.

BSM/PCM контролер за заряда и разряда на Li-ion пакет 3x18650 11.1V-12.6V/40А (elimex.bg)
This is the site where I got it from.

Translation of the title is: BSM/PCM controller for charging and discharging of Li-ion pack 3x18650 11.1V-12.6V/40A
Translation of the description is: PCM (PCB, BMS) protection module 3S 40A 12.6V with balancer (balance charge) for charging and discharging of Li-ion and Li-Po

There are no details of the charging and discharging.
Charging at its 20A and discharging at 40A will explode many Lithium batteries. The ad does not say if they are programmable.
