    Is it possible to charge a model s battery module(384 cells per mod) on a bench?
    Sorry a newb here, the most i know is that the system is composed of 4v lithium ion cells in parallel groups of 6 connected to other groups in series with a BMS which is controlled by a master BMS. Did some searching but some said it cant be done but hoping thats incorrect :D

    there's a YouTube guy Paul Rickard, or something like that, who has controllers specifically for the Tesla modules. You should be able to find him with a few searches. If not I can look for it when I'm at my computer. Reply so I'll know if you don't find it.

    You could look in the forum General\Technical\Battery Discussion. Maybe the guys and links in this thread would be of interest: DIY Lithium battery project(s)
