Hardcase Lipo

Recommended Posts

i'm not new to lipo, but i've never had a battery like this:

all my batteries have a balance harness built in. how do i connect my blinky balancer to a battery like this?

i got this pack in a lot i bought off a guy. ($100.00 usd for 3 cars, a b4 with a novak gtb brushless setup and this battery, a tamiya ff02 that looks new and an old traxxas spirit)

thanks for your help.

You can either use something like this from Hyperion (LBA-10-CAR adapter) and bypass your balance board:

...or buy/build a battery plug like this to use your existing balance board:

Who makes a plug like the one pictured? (Actually, one with a Traxxas connector)

Any links?

Thanks!

when you connect lipo to the charger, first connect balance plug, then connect + plug, then - plug.

It is good to do this in the correct order like this.

I know for a fact that iCharger chargers may actually fail catastrophically if you do not do it in this order.

both my neighbors have those tenergy batteries that came with those connectors, i may just borrrow one so i can charge it. i use a blinky balancer because my triton jr doesn't balance.

i'll make one or buy one with deans connectors.

I looked a little and couldn't find the adapter by itself. Does anyone know if the adapter is available separately?

Thanks!

he robbed me in the past, it was my turn. he pratically begged me to take the b4 because he's "afraid of brushless and lipo" lol
