what "charger" does this need?
I want to build my onw 3s pack.
Is it sufficiant to connect an simple 15V AC/DC wall outlet to charge the pack? Is the electronic charging circuit included on this board? Does it balance the pack?

You just have to look at picture 2 to see that you only have contacts for 3 batteries and the output. You would have to charge the batteries separately.

why does it then say "Recommended charge setting: 15V DC CC/CV"?

My apologies - I didn't read the small print.
Recommended charge setting: 15V DC CC/CV
Individual, multi-channel cell charge/discharge cut-off sensors
Cuts off charging at 4.35V +/- 0.025V per cell (resets at 4.075V)

I guess you connect 15V DC to the output and pray. It reads like it balances the charge.

Yeah, thats what my question is about. Is this only a protection circuit, or does it also have a charging and balancing function!?
