He said I won't need a BMS with the balancers and the solar controller will do high and low voltage cut out??

Hope this makes sense to someone cause it's taking a while to sink in at my end!!

I am using the single balancers from the Electric Car Parts Company with a Victron BMV-600, but am going to upgrade to the BMV-702 specifically for it's mid point monitoring.

It also has the ability to control a relay to shut down the pack if the voltage of the bottom 8 cells varies from the voltage of the top 8 cells (pack mid-point monitoring).

I've spoken to 3-4 local solar people and they all seem scared or sceptical of LiFePo4 batteries so getting info is hard.
