Anyone using these ? Looking for some feedback. I presently have a PolyQuest 4 port charger and 2 Thunder Power Balancers. It seems one of my balancers is going bad...at least they both have different indications on the same battery. I don't have a ton-o-bucks and was thinking about getting 2 of these balancers as replacements.

From what I can gather, these things are MAINLY balancers.....however...using the supplied inputs/outputs on the balancer you can also balance/charge at the same time...is this true ?

Thanks !

The link you provide is a CHARGE THREW BALANCER. They exist menu brand, I use a FLightPower V-Balancer and it works great.

I also carry it with me to the field so I can check my pack after I land.

here is the manual for it. it is a balancer only. You still need a charger to charge the packs while it does the balancing.

Thanks, I did find the manual online but the diagrams have me confused !

The confusing parts is when charge/balancing more than 1 pack per CC7 board...I completely get the use as a charge balancer with one pack per CC7 board. It would appear that in order to use this as a charge balancer for MULTIPLE PACKS per CC7 board you must use the + and - outputs on the B6Plus on seperate packs to the CC7 board. This could be somewhat daunting using Deans plugs as I do...however...if using bullet connectors it is a snap !
So the question.....if using it charge balancing for multiple packs do you, in essence, hook up your packs in series with the + and - outputs on the B6Plus ?
Can you hook up multiple packs to the CC7 board and use multiple inputs from another charger to charge the packs ? I would think the answer is no....but that is why I have it posted.
