is there a open source battery charger ?

I require some unusual features on a battery charger.
The easiest way would be to take a 4x100W charger, one of the many with 4 displays, most seem to run same firmware, and modify the firmware to my needs.

Are there any open source chargers out there ?

I was gonna post that too

watch out that you follow calibration absolutely to the letter, I fried a chip on a new unit due to missing one, replaced it easy but the instructions for test points were unclear enough to follow

thanks, truth is, I've found it on GIT shortly after searching this forum, and asking.

A rule of thumb - don't use bare LiPo as power supply when calibrating. Use current-limiting power supply, LiPo in series with car bulb etc. This will keep the magic smoke inside the charger .
