As well as making sure my lipos are stored at about half-charge, I also disconnect each one from the wiring harness when they are not in use. That way a duff cell will only affect the other 2 around it and not the whole set-up.
Ahoy Scott, was a bit puzzled by your new setup. You say there is only one balance lead, shouldn't there be one for each trio of cells? I'm just thinking of my lipo setup and your old system, each battery needs to have it's cells balanced so the charger/charging plate supplies a lead to each one. If the trios of 1860 cells all need a set of balance wires, that's a heck of a lot of wires you will need!
Thanks for that Scott, I think I get it! I hope it works OK for you. If I ever fry my lipo set up I will go for something like that. It is a lot cheaper and easier to replace any cells if they fail.
PS your kitchen unit handles are the same as mine! Ha ha!
What do you reckon your total costs are there, Scott?
I spotted this...

Hmmm... £675.99 for 30 AH, anyone?
You should think about going into business for yourself.
