PL6 charging without balance leads connected?
Do any of the modes allow you to charge without having any balance lead plugs connected?
I tried using a generic charge board to parallel charge 4 packs (without any balance taps connected to the PL6) in the Faster Charging mode" and it says "bad cell count node wiring" and says the same thing when I am in High Power mode? I remember reading about a balance dummie plug for certain Powerlab models to get around this but can't find it again and don't want to mess anything up Lol.

For LiPos there is the LiPo 1s/2s Small Non Balanced preset, but its limited to 2 amps. The "plug" was for the Cellpro10s and allowed you to charge using only the balance connector vs charge with only the charge leads.

Same question asked many different ways for years now.
Simple answer with Power Labs and most other balancing chargers both main leads and balancing lreads need to be connected and balancing leads have to be the correct sequence as brands use different wiring orders.
Power Labs have Non Balanced Presets which can be used for 1-2S LiPolys at lower power.
One should learn how LiPlys are wired,the Power Lab Manual has wiring drawings for 1- X S for both FMA and JST sequence. I suggest one study the drawings.
