Speaking of the Telink planes, are they in the upgrade stream as well? I may need to own one this summer.

Sorry for the cross post, but I think all TH customers need to know who their supplier really is!

I thought it was just a matter of time (being around that much Crack) before he was hooked! Ron

Nice to be able to charge 6 at once.
Just got the 6 lead charge cable,and a 6 lead balance cable! When I hooked them up and started charging 6 battery's,it kicks off and displays "battery over capacitance"? Do I have to set the capacity higher? Ron

Hmmm. What sort of charger are you using?

I know on my setup, the order in which you plug things in matters. Plug in all battery leads first, then the balance leads. And when I'm using the para board, the charger likes the balance leads attached in a specific order as well or the charger throws an error.

It's a Gen's Ace IMars Charger. I just hit the charge button again,and it charged for a while,then once more,and it said charge complete! It's reading the capacity of all the packs in parallel I guess? Maybe I should increase the battery capacity on the charger to 2760 mAh? Ron

That would be my guess Ron. By joining six 460mah 2s packs in parallel you've created a 2760mah 2s pack. I've never done parallel charging but it could be a good idea with the amount of packs I can get through these days.

Yeah,I had to adjust the capacity 2700 mAh to get it to work right! I charged 6 battery's in 23minutes,then I checked each one. They all were in balance,and at 4.19V per cell! I set the current to 4 C,This is going save alot of time. Ron

Ah, that makes sense. I never considered it since my iCharger came with a default setting of 5000mAh.

Just remember that the batteries should be of similar charge state. If there's a big difference, put them in different groups. You can intermix various capacities of the same number of cells. But you probably already knew that.

I still usually charge at 1C. 6 charge just as fast as one. So sweet.

Charge up 6 and fly two, then put those two back on charge while flying the remaining 4 and you can fly all day on just 6 batteries. I only have 5 and can fly indefinitely.

Since I'm kinda lazy I like to charge all 10 packs up, then as I start to get low, I throw a few on charge again! Sometimes I don't get to fly all ten packs,so I discharge them when I get home! Ron
