Help!

Which lead do I need to connect batteries to charger please?


I've bought a Turnigy Accucel-6 80W 10A Balancer/Charger LiHV Capable which I will use to charge my new 6 x Keenstone 3.7V 500mAh 25C LiPO Batteries for the Hubsan X4. I've also purchased one of these to connect all 6 batteries to the charger.



Now I understand that the big white connector will connect to the charger and the little ends to the batteries however I have no idea how I am going to connect the red end to the banana sockets on the charger.

Although the latter shows out of stock so you may have to look elsewhere. I believe the battery connector is the micro T connector (check with others) and it seems Losi used to make a charging harness but I'm not sure if the one I linked is a copy of that.

See if your charger has a balance only setting. If so, plug in the large white connector and the packs, select the cell count and mah/amp setting and try it.

The first one looks like the right cable ���� Can't get the second one to show a picture at the moment.

Balance only? So the charger will think it's only one 6S? I'll have to ensure all the individual batteries are at the same voltage before they charge though I would guess.

It's one 6S whether you tell it to balance only charge or not. Personally I would cut that connector apart and rewire it as a parallel setup myself. ie: what if one battery dies or for some reason you only want to charge 4?

What is the URL for that 6 way connector in post 31?

For the adapter shown you need a banana plug to jst connector adapter, I'm surprised your charger didn't come with one. You want to connect that red jst plug to the red and black banana jacks and then plug the big white connector into the balance port.
