Help!
thunder power LiPo balancer tp210V

I just received my new TP 210V balancer. When I ordere it I thought thayt I could just plug in my 6S2P main and my 7.4V servo battery. Not the case though. What connector, adapters etc needed to use it??

Are these adapter cords already out there or do I make them up. Could someone give me a description and maybe part numbers , and a supplier ?
Thanks

SO, you must hot have TP batteries. You need to know the type of connector on your battery. You may have to contact the battery manufacture.

Hear are some links that may help:

volts x amps = watts.

See if anyone makes adapters for those packs, or get a set of appropriate plugs and wire your own adapters.

If you do make your own, be sure to find the proper cell pattern or you'll fry the balancer and potentially the pack too. TP's pattern is easy to find, each cell is in order. Use a voltmeter and check each pin from the first, if the voltages go up on each pin by the same voltage, you've found the right order.

TP balancers use the cell 1 negative first, then each subsequent positive after that. They offer 6 pin and 4 pin taps. 6 pins handle up to 5 cells, 4 pins handle up to 3 cells. TP will use a combination of 4pin/6pin or 6pin/6pin to use more than 5 cells.

If you're using 6 cells:
wire the first 3 cells into a TP 4 pin plug...
Wire pin#
c1- 1
c1+ 2
c2+ 3
c3+ 4

wire the second 3 cells into a 6 pin plug...
Wire pin#
c4- 1
c4+ 2
c5+ 3
c6+ 4
na 5 (remove)
na 6 (remove)

Plug both sets of pins into the bank1 side of the balancer. Plug the grounded cell in last, so plug in Group B, then Group A. Once group A is plugged in, it will initialize and start balancing. You can balance/charge at the same time with the TP210.

(my 10s pack uses the same idea, but two 6 pins for the forst and second sets of 5 cells).
