** BE CAREFUL **

The multiple 3S balance sockets on the adapter boards are connected in SERIES not parallel. If you have your packs connected in parallel you cannot connect their balance leads to multiple sockets on the balance board.

You either have to make a 3S parallel cable for the balance leads and connect to just one 3S socket on the adapter board and charge as 3S OR connect your packs in series, use the two right-most sockets on the adapter boards and charge as 6S.

When connecting in series be *Very* careful to ensure that the lower pack (ie the one connected to the negative of the main power lead) plugs into the right-hand socket on the balance board and the upper pack (ie the one connected to the positive of the main power lead) plugs into the next socket to the left on the adapter board.
