Paraboard

Hey guys...I just want a little info on these Paraboards...are there any cheap knock offs? What other names do they go by? (For searches on eBay)
Which ones do you reccommend? Are they bad?
Thanks!
Alex

For $18.00 I see no need to search for a knock-off.

I'll second that for buying from Dale at EP Buddy. I have iCharger 106 and used to have connection issues when using the adapters from HK but none since getting the Paraboard.

This is about as cheap as it gets:

But by the time you pay shipping you won't be saving much if any over EPBuddy. Also you don't really want to go cheap on a Paraboard, they have to take a lot of current.

Yeah, im just going to get one of those parallel charger adapters, with pigtails because I don't need the balancers-plus I wont be charging over 10A because I only have a 10A charger.
Thanks!

You don't need the balancers? Are you only charging 1S? If you are charging 2S or more you have to balance every few charges at least or you'll end up trashing your packs eventually.

Don't know what charger you have but you'll probably hit the watt limit before you can hit 10A.

My packs always stay within .02V with each other. Of course I balance them every 10 or so charges.
200W charger, 10A limit.
