This is what makes no sense to me. A pack that is balanced during a discharged state will then show an imbalance when the pack is charged if all cells are not carefully matched. This makes the balancer work a lot harder when the pack is charged and may greatly extend the charge cycle.
Our planes, cars, boats, etc., do not balance during discharge as doing so can create more issues than it solves.
I guess the simple way to avoid this is to simply not plug in the balance tap during storage discharge, or use another means altogether...
