About the lime Gen 4 S (Mines is Lime Gen 4.1 S)
While I was figuring how to connect all of the electrical connections together, I found that unlike the bird 3 batteries, lime 4.0/4.1 charges it's batteries through the output port (where the batteries discharges, with the xt60 connector), so when i Did the bypass, It was giving me the correct voltage (battery is dead tho) I wonder if the bms still functions properly when charging, or when I did the bypass, the battery can overcharge due to the bms being bypassed entirely, which is what I am worried about. Others said on this forum there is some risks on a bypassed battery, but I am not worried if it functions properly when charging.
If I have to set up an auto timer killswitch every time I charge the battery and risk it overcharging, it is very not feasible. I am using a low voltage 36V official charger designed for bird 3 fleet but have a faster amprage charger if needed.
I am still figuring out the connections to get it running, but hopefully I can make a lime gen 4 custom guide like they did with the lime 3 once I get it running.
And If i want to fit my controller into the frame, I have to chop off 0.3 mm to get it to fit.
Edit: Turns out after review, I didn't read and it looks like using the bypassed bms risk overcharging due to charging through the output port, no undercurrent protection, no charging protection, etc. Guess I will have to re-solder the battery connections as said in the previous pages, and install my own BMS into the battery, hopefully the thing works.
If anyone can, if possible list out the clear controller connection steps with images, that can be helpful.
