ICharger 208B and 6S JST-XH Balance Cable for Parallel Charging

I planning to purchase an ICharger 208B to charge 6S 5000mah batteries. I'm not sure if I can use this 6S parallel balance cable with it. Not sure if I should just purchase the 206B one.

Thanks in advance.

Which 6S parallel balance cable are you referring to? Do you have a picture of it or a link?

That harness has the 6S tap. The 208B's balance port is a 9 pin port for 8S.

This is the one you want with the following 8S to 6S adapter. It costs more, but the 6 parallel discharge connectors are included in a nice neat package.

The iCharger 208B has a single 8S (9 pin) JST-XH port and uses adapter boards with a cable interface.

ANY 2S - 7S JST-XH plug can be swapped with an 8S (9 pin) plug (ALWAYS STARTING AT THE GROUND END) and plugged directly into the 8S port (with unused pin sockets) without the need for the cabled adapter board.

Digi-Key P/N 455-2217-ND 10 each for $1.27 plus shipping

Example - Customer's Parallel 2S rig for 2 each JST-XH and 2 each Thunder Power which plugs directly into the 208B (and a SERIES power harness for his Traxxas vehicle).

Sorry to bring up a dead thread from a year ago but I have a question which 3 shops have had not had an answer for nor could they even point me in the right direction. Needless to say I have 1k worth of crap since I have not been able to charge the batteries nor even hook them up. This thread is the closets to answers I have been to date since purchasing my car well over a year ago.

I bought the 208b charger and power supply brand new. I also bought 2 hyperion vx g3 lipo power packs. They are 3s/11.1v 35c discharge 5500mah.

What do I need to do to charge them seperately or at the same time. Will the above setup work in my case or not... Any help would be appreciated!

You'll need this 208B balance tap adapter for the Paraboard.

And the Paraboard for the HP with your lipo's discharge connector.
