PL8 balance charge TP packs with two balance leads


Guys - sorry if this has been asked & answered before, but what balance adapters should I get in order to charge the pack pictured below? (Is this what's called a 'split' pack?)

It's a ThunderPower 6S pack with one TP 3S connector & 1 TP 5S connector with only 4 cells wired in.

How do I use two (TP) safe parallel adapters when the pack only has 1 pair of main discharge leads? There doesn't seem to be a matching wiring diagram in either the PL8 or the Safe parallel Adapters guide.

You can daisy chain these together. One per pack you want to charge in parallel

Or you can purchase TP to JST-XH adapters and use the MPA. FMA doesn't sell these, but they are all over the place. The last batch I received was from HK.

No, that's not a split pack. A split pack would have two sets of main leads coming from it.
