Question
LiPo 6S to 2x 3S conversion?

Is it possible to separate a 6s battery into two 3s batteries? HK accidentally sent me a 6s battery (Turnigy 2650mAh 6s1p 20C), and I have no use for it but I could use a couple of 3S batteries. I have the basic soldering skills required, but I was just wondering if anyone has tried with success. Thanks!

It can be done but sometimes the batteries will have aluminum tabs that require you to use aluminum solder instead of normal solder. I have never found the stuff works that great for me. But it could be my heat or something. You would also need two 3 cell balance plugs as your 6s plug wont work. I would just sell it and get what you really need.

Since HK made the mistake I would ask them to ship me what I ordered and prepayment to return to them the 6S pack at their transportation cost.
