Sam,

Hyperion sells their smaller 2s packs without balance taps. I assume that they wouldn't do so if the didn't think it was safe. That said - I use balance taps on all of my multi-cell packs - regardless of size. Some may say that I'm being overcautious; but I just won't risk it when charging @ 5c in the house.

If you have basic soldering skills, you are better off making your own packs, as you can make them significantly lighter than Hyperion's shrink-wrapped packs.
