Any interest in a 1S series charging board?

With this board you have the ability to chose how many batteries you would like to charge, from 1 all the way up to 6, 1s lipos all at the same time. No matter how many batteries you decide to charge every battery gets fully charged (unlike parallel charging) due to the balance lead. Essentially what happens is you are making one higher voltage pack when you connect the batteries to the board.

To charge you insert the number of batteries you want to charge, for example lets say you want to charge 3, 150mAh lipos.
So you plug the batteries in slots 1,2,and 3, then move the shunt to #3.
You then plug the balance lead into the charger and finally plug the 4mm bullet connectors into the charger. Set your charger to balance mode (MUST USE BALANCE MODE EVERY TIME UNLESS YOU ARE CHARGING ONLY 1 BATTERY). If your charger auto detects the number of cells in the lipo pack it should have detected 3, otherwise manually set the charger to 3s, then set the charge current to 150mA (1C charge rate). The batteries will begin charging and balance every cell to full charge.
(max charge current is 1A)

This board is designed for 1s lipos with the Molex picoblade connector, I can also make custom boards for jst connectors, losi connectors, micro deans, and many others.

Price is not final but im hoping it will be somewhere in the $12 range.

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT TO LET ME KNOW YOUR THOUGHTS.

Here is my new navigation light kit, this kit was designed/developed and assembled by myself.

The light controller was designed for 2s lipo UMX size planes so the footprint of the circuit board is small (.65 x .775 inches, pictured on a quarter) in order to keep weight to a minimum.

The kit has 9 leds:
1 solid red navigation light
1 solid green navigation light
2 solid white rear facing navigation lights
2 white strobe lights
2 white landing lights
1 dual function tail light that comes on solid but also strobes with the other strobe lights

The unit plugs directly into the xport/gear(5) channel on the "brick" (4pin jst-sh connector installed) and has 4 modes which can utilize either a 4 position switch or a 2 position switch (which is automatically detected during calibration) to change between the modes.

The first mode all lights are off.

In the second mode just the solid lights and strobe lights turn on (no landing lights).

The third mode adds the 2 landing lights.

In the fourth mode the landing lights wigwag back and forth alternating between the left landing light and the right landing light.

These lights have been very closely modeled after the cub crafters carbon cub navigation light package.

The kit is pictured on my eflite umx j3 cub.

Wire lengths are:
15" for the wing lights
8" for the landing lights
16" for the tail light

The cost is $24.95 + S/H
