DIY Battery Pack problem

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to built my battery pack.
I had used LG HG2 3000 mah batteries which has 30A peak discharge.
The problem is DCF880 drill doesn't want to turn. When the switch triggered LED goes on/off but the motor is not turning.
DCF880 is fine because it works with the original battery.

I thought it is chinese BMS not capable and bypassed it by adding original dewalt PCB.
The original PCB also has NTC sensor on it.
I measured the voltages all fine. 20.60V at the drill.
Again, LED goes on/off but the motor is not turning.

What does the tool wants to know? Or whats could be the problem?

I haven't dug into a pile of the tools, but it most likely depends on the tool. The DCD780 needs the B+ and B-, but then it also needs C3 and TH to work correctly. If it gets no voltage from TH (the Thermistor in the pack) it throttles the drill back as it 'thinks' the pack is overheating.
