balance connector pin spacing

Has anyone made a chart of pin spacing on LiPoly packs balance connectors? For instance some use 2.5 mm pitch and some use 2.00 mm pitch.

Most use 2.5 mm spacing , Thunder Power and FMA use 2 mm spacing however the housing are different.

Thank you very much, that is exactly what I wanted. Everyday flyer, you are a vast treasure of 1/2/3 knowledge. Question, I am building up a 1/2/3 pack for a friend of mine that will use 8-1/2/3 cells paralled for 4600 ma at 28.8 v. What would your preferred charging method?

Well if 120AC is available then a Mastech . If no AC then a Hyperion and I forget the model number. , or a hyperion DUO. This is if charging time / speed matters. An AF 109 A model would be the least expensive but only about 7 amps. or so on 8S . thunder Power 1010C about the same more feacytures but more money than the AF109. Many are going to new Cell Pro 10 but it has not impressed me charge rate / speed wise.

1/2/3 charging method

At present, am leaning toward putting new 1/2/3 chip in 109. Perhaps we would be better off charging each pack seperately. What is your thought?

1/2/3

I forgot to mention, I have a Lipadapter that I am using on present packs so it may be another option charging 18v packs with a healthy nicad dumb charger.

Charge rate will be maxed out 1P or 2P.2P would be a litle faster as you only have stage 1 and 3 to deal with once.

Note the 7A figure is off the top of my head and may be high. I rarely use my A109 as i have a TP1010, Ballance Pro HD and Cell Pro 10 all of which are a bit faster. Well CP10 may not really be faster but my 109 is loaned out to my son at present.
