I'm referring to my own question:
asking about the effect of balancing on the battery life or state of health.
This is clearly a technical inquiry asking for an explanation. Therefore I cannot agree to the closure reason saying:
Questions seeking recommendations for specific products or places to purchase them are off-topic as they are rarely useful to others and quickly obsolete. Instead, describe your situation and the specific problem you're trying to solve.
In opposite I think this is a valid and valuable question, it can certainly be improved and be better formulated, but it is a concern for anybody in the field who maybe confronted by questions asking how and whether cell balancing really has an effect on the life span of a battery pack. As a pack highly depends on the weakest cell.
I'm neither recommending products nor looking for a recommendation nor for places to buy them this is clearly not the topic nor intent of my question. I rather want to get a more profound insight in the benefits of cell balancing on the life span of a lithium Ion battery pack each of these topics (balancing, lithium ion batteries, and battery-lifespan are clearly on-topic here) is on-topic (else why would related tags exist) on this site. So if I can't ask this here then where should I ask?
Therefore I'd be pleased to understand how this question can be off-topic.
