Newbie ?? Why do some lipos have 1 plug and some have 2??

I read that the 2 plug ones are for charge and discharge.
How do you deal with the 1 plug ones?

The 1 plug packs are used by charging and discharging through one plug

You can do same with 2 plug ones but the 2nd plug can be used for balancing or charging only.

All the good brands have separate plug(s) for the balancer. If you use LiPo you really should have a good balancer like the TP-205.

There are extra plugs with wires available so you can add to them to your existing packs.

We offer a charger that charges & balances at the same time. It can work with any brand of batery.
