Are you sure you are doing it right?

What am I doing wrong? The BMS should be able to charge at the correct voltages and current. And the batteries I have are well over the limits of the BMS. Should I connect the BMS to a DC/DC charger? What are the disadvantages or dangers of connecting the BMS directly to the alternator?

TIA

Per your original question about wire, I would research someplace like WiringDepot. Maybe Marine wire or SXL Cross-Linked wire. Consider enclosing it in sheathing or some kind of flexible conduit if running it externally.

This one is similar to the one that I have but with 250Amps.
Amazon doesn't have the 180A that I got awhile back.
