Connection Sequence

According to our engineer, the main charging port and the balance port has reversed polarity protection respectively.

If the balancing connector has correct polarity, and then connect the main charging port, there is no problem; but if balancing connector has reversed polarity, and then connect the main charging port, it will burn.

Recommended connecting way:

1. Connect iCharger's input power supply, and turn on it.
2. Connect Li batteries' balance port
3. Connect the main charging port's positive pole to cells' positive pole, and then connect negative pole to cells' negative pole (this will avoid striking fire while connecting Li cells).
4. Start charging and discharging...
5. After finishing charging and discharging, pls disconnect the cell and charger, and then turn off the charger's power supply.
------------------------------------------------------------
Please note however this does not take into account parallel balance charging whic as posted is best to first connect the main power leads in parallel to let the batteries reach the same state of charge.

Your sequence will be fine as long as there is no reverse polarity problems.

Some connect main leads and balamcing leads in various random order as many feel that there is not best (correct) sequence. Some have no issues and some do.

There have been Threads here on RC Groups depating parallel charging as long or longer than I have been a member and the only real issues which change are the players.
