I guess I am just trying to figure out what adapter would be needed. I know assumptions are dangerous. I don't know if the 1s pack can be charged as a "balanced" pack without connecting to the balanced lead (or if it would have to be charged as an unbalanced pack with an amp limit). Likewise, if I had to have a balanced lead, I don't know if I could make an adapter and grab either the first 2 of the jst pins or the outer two and cheat.
Yes, the preferred method would be to connect to one of the Deans. The Deans are not related to the balance ports in any way. You'd need to use an unbalanced preset if using a Revolectrix charger/battery workstation.
