Lipo Cell Balancing VS. Cell Equalization

Normal LIPO packs can be fast charged at 1C using active balancing circuits at constant current chargers and power supplies for people using a single pack.

For the more experienced user, a constant voltage regulated power supply is what I use to charge 5 packs ( 2s & 3s) at the same time.

The current automatically tapers off as the packs reach their clamped voltage levels of 12.6 and 8.4 at around 200ma to 50 ma

This is a slow charging process which cells in the packs have lots of time to EQUALIZE, emphasis on the time factor, not amps in the final AH reading

I have been using this system for a long time and I have salvaged packs that R cooking brushless motors in a ducted fan models
