I need an answer as well. The charger has 2 or 3 cell charging anywere form 300 , 500 mah , 1amp , 1.5 , or 2amp charging with balancing ability.

The plug for balancing a 3cell lipo has 4pins and Plugs in front of charger.
The plug for balancing 2cells has 3pins and plugs into the side.

Are these Balancing charger plugs the Industry Standard.?? Or are they propriatary to parkzone only???

What type of plug is that on the batt + and - ?
What type of balancing plug is that.? Thanks for your help, I hope I can use a wide rage of different name brand batts for charging.. It looks like Duskey 2 cell has a 3pin port that looks alot alike.

Looks like the same balancing connector as used on the X-Power (Dual Sky) but wired exactly opposite. Appears to be wired the same as GraysonPower,Electric Power and some others.

Perhaps this photo will make it clearer.

The X-Power (Dual Sky) just plugs into this charger however some others such as the GraysonPower require an extension which reverses the connections.

See extension / adapters here.

It is possible to move(rearange) the contacts in the connectors.

I have done a little research since I started this thread. I believe that the balance connector is a JST XH. I will know for sure in a few days. I have one on order and when it arrives I will make another post to confirm this. As for the main battery lead plug it is a E-flite EC3. Horizon Hobby has them listed on their web site. Just go to Horizon's main page and type in EC3 in the search box and it will bring up all of the EC3 connectors.

Charles, if GraysonPower is opposite with DualSky, then is it the same with CommonsenseRC?
I'm using CellPro and have CommonsenseRC adaptor to TP. Thinking about giving GraysonPower a shot

I can confirm that itt has the same adapter that my Common Sense RC packs have, but it's wired in reverse.

I can charge it with my Common Sense RC balancing charger by plugging the balance connector on the pack in upside down.

Presumably per http://www.commonsenserc.com/page.ph...acks_info.html the new CommonSenseRC packs share the same balancer as the Parkzone batteries / chargers?

If so - great!

[Hmmm I wonder which CSRC pack fits a Stryker C?]

Most guys are using our 15C - 2100mAh

http://www.commonsenserc.com/product...products_id=39

or our conservatively rated 20C - 2000mAh (outperforms most every 25C pack on the market)

http://www.commonsenserc.com/product...roducts_id=142

Our new 30C 2200mAh pack (coming out very soon) will fit as well for very high output motors in the Stryker.

I have both Parkzone and Common Sense Li-Poly batteries, and they have the same balancer plug.

Same as Electrify

Most advanced Lipo chargers sell a different "balance charge" Board. Thunderpower, Electrifly, and several other brands have specific boards for their batts that are sold for different chargers.

Parkzone, Zippy, and Electrifly have the same plug. The board you would need is Electrifly, See crummy cell phone picture.

I give my fun jut and stryker a good hard and fast throw about 45 degrees to the horizon at about 1/4 stick. Let it start flying before you give full power. They are a blast to fly
