Question
PL8 parallel charge cable options

So I have a Power Lab PL8 charger. Originally I used a MPA board but sold it not liking the size and picked up a paraboard. I still find that larger than I need. On my iCharger 306 I bought a large connection of these http://www.progressiverc.com/paralle...e-adapter.html and I am wondering how I can use these with my PL8. Seems I need some adapter to plug into the charger. Those just simply plugged into the 306 I had but not so simple with the PL8

One of their adapter boards into which you could plug your pigtails that split out/multiply your balance connections?

Thanks

I don't recommend using squids since they don't have the fuse protection the better parallel boards have.

I would surmise XH. Same as if you were using any parallel board.

The charger will tell you if you made the wrong choice.

Those cables have JST-XH connectors. The connectors on the PL6 and PL8 are JST-PA. So you would have to find or fabricate a JST-XH to JST-PA cable.

If you buy a Paraboard for a PL6 or PL8 it comes with such a cable.

I am already using a powerboard I was just looking for a little more compact. I guess I will stay with it and in part for the fused protection.
