Adapter from multiple 1S Li-Po batteries to 2S and 3S chargers


I would like to simultaneously charge multiple E-flite 1S Li-Po batteries using my two 2s and two 3s E-flite Li-Po balancing chargers. I think this could be done using by wiring the Lipo3 connector to 2 "Vapor-RX" connectors, and wiring the Lipo4 connector to 3 "Vapor-RX" connectors.

I would like to buy (2) Lipo3 connectors, (2) Lipo4 connectors, and (10) "Vapor-RX" connectors. I would also be willing to pay more if you would wire them up correctly. Either way, please let me how much and send me your PayPal instructions. Thanks.

-Paul

If you're sure the lipo balance taps fit your charger, then it should work, assuming you only try and charge depleted batteries. It may not like it (or refuse to charge) if you've got one full one and one or more empties together into a "pack".

Will you sell some of your 28 AWG wire by the foot along with these connectors?

If not, where can one buy such wire? Different colors like are used in balance tap connectors would be a bonus.

Strange how I can't seem to find this thread listed in the forum it says it is in. Everytime I look it is not there. Only found it through RunRyder.

Figured it out. For some odd reason this forum is not being sorted by the posting date. Was able to get it to sort as I wanted and find this post. Weird.

Yes, it is odd. Some forums I subscribe to here come up sorted that way by default. Others do not. Probably a setting managed by the forum owner, doubt they would change it if asked, but maybe it's worth a shot. The thing is that I can't make any rhyme or reason to how the ones like this ARE sorted, it's not by title or post count or obviously last post.

Sure, everything is for sale PM sent.

I get 26gauge and thicker at my LES (Local Electronics Shop). They don't carry 28 or smaller, so I buy that from Newark. They have LOTS of colors and much much cheaper than Digikey (for wire, that is).

Paul,

Your custom assemblies were mailed out today. Since I don't have your exact charger I can't guarantee they will work, but my research shows the EFlite chargers use the same taps I sell and polarized the same way.

Make sure to double-check the polarity/voltage of the vapor plugs before you plug in your batteries, and be careful not to yank via the wires!

For everyone: If you think there's TOO much force required to disconnect these plugs, there is a fix. There is a tiny tab on the back of the battery side that mates with the hole on the side of the RX plug. Gently rounding that with sandpaper or fine file will make it easier to insert/remove.

LiPo charge adapters work great!


Hi Glenn,

I got your adapters and all four work wonderfully. I double checked the polarity, plugged in the batteries to unpowered chargers on a fireproof surface and turned on the power. I have been charging multiple batteries in parallel for a couple of days now. My sons Blade MCX has practically no down time now! Thanks for your help, it saved me a huge amount of hassle.

Got my connectors from Glenn pretty fast after ordering them. I got the Vapor RX connectors and they fit the battery connectors on the mCX batteries just fine. Glad I was able to find them.

A long shot I know but here goes anyway...

I am in the UK and have been trying to find some Vapor-RX type connectors or leads for AGES to make a harness to charge my mCX LiPos as a pack - charging 6 of them one at a time takes AGES!

There are lots of places in the States selling the Parkzone spare leads (PKZ3052) but so far have only found ONE supplier here in the UK and they are out of stock waiting for more to come in - no surprise there!

Are you willing to ship to the UK ?
If so, could you find out how much shipping would be ?

Many thanks in advance

I built a little parallel charge harness using Glenn's Vapor-Rx connectors which charges four of the mCX batts at a time in parallel. Works well.

Thanks Glenn.

Glenn...

I'm interested in the RX side connector with wires pre-attached. Do you offer this? I want to be able to use my Hyperion charger on these little batteries.

Thanks in advance...
