blade mcpx multi charge lead anyone ?

hi,

does anyone know or have a link to a lead that will allow me to charge more than 1 blade mcpx battery at once using the standard charger?

i can only find posts with leads for a balance charger and not the stock one

thanks

Did you look at post #2? Or am I misunderstanding your question?

I don't think the OP means "standard" charger - I think he means the little charger that comes with the MCPX, so you might need to solder that onto the MCPX connector that came with the MCPX. No biggier there.

Do keep in mind though that the adaptor shown in post #2 doesn't actually fit MCPX batteries. The MCPX uses the "high current" micro connector.

I got some of the Eflite MCPX/high-current to parkzone micro connectors (you get one of these with the MCPX) and soldered them together. You could terminate this in a plug that goes into the MCPX charger, but I don't see the point really. They already tell you to set that charger to max to charge one battery at a time. It would be better to get a normal/generic charger that could charge them all quickly.

I don't really care about the time it takes to charge its more of less hassle having to keep swapping batteries over every 15 mins, so if it took an hour to charge 4 batteries that would do, where could I get the connectors from ?
