Half-bridge SMPS with current loop control is made use for Embedded Recharging Unit.
Once the battery capacity gets low after usage, it is required to charge them up to storing percentage or to full capacity for re-usage.
A switching mode power supply is used for high efficiency for the purpose of safely charging the battery up to the desired capacity.
Battery Packaging of Storm is as same as Shark's. See below for details.
BMS is used to facilitate the equalization at the parallel cell groups, enhancing a longer battery run time.
