So I pulled a battery out of my friends car that was totalled. It's a NiMD pack with 34, 7.2v cells in series. I'd like to turn it into a "12v"(14.4v) battery pack but I have a few questions. The biggest is will the BMS that came with it still balance the cells if I run it at 14.4 volts instead of its rated 245 volts.

I also have no idea what to do with it. It's cool to have but I really don't know what to do aside from think it's cool sitting on my work bench.
