Any experience with Chins?

You probably shouldn't have ran the batteries to 0%. That's bad for any battery. The solar charge controller may not know what to do with a battery that depleted. Connecting a regular power supply may be one way to resurrect the battery. Once you get the battery to something like 20% the solar charge controller may be able to take over. Depending on the BMS, you may have to bypass it.
Ok. Good as any place to start. I am spoiled by the all-in-one systems, I guess, otherwise I would not have been so carelessly running it dead.

If your all-in-one allows for it, you should update it to cut off discharge once the battery bank reaches a certain percentage, like 10%. The inverter should be set this way and be your primary cut off. The BMS is the last line of defense.

If you send the batteries back to Chins, they'll know you ran the batteries to 0%.

Oh, I meant I was spoiled by my solar "generators". I shouldn't have said all-in-ones, since I dont have something like a growatt. I'm using a 24v system with seperate components. I will have to make sure I create some kind of cutoff once I get the batteries recovered and try again. Thanks for your input so far.
