Question
Charging Lipo using Balance board vs Direct

Been charging my 2s and 3s lipo connecting balance cable to the balance board on my CellPro4s. Seem this is safer method of charging Lipo.

Charging lipo through balance board vs charging it directory to discharge cable, what is the difference? Is it any faster?

Not sure sure what "charging it to directory" means but basically the clue is in the name. If you aren't using the balance connector then you aren't balancing the pack. It's a good idea to balance lipo packs though it's not 100% essential that you do it every charge .

CellPro 4 charges and balances thru the balancing leads only.

Many other balancing chargers charge thru the main leads and balance thru the balancing leads .
