Default need help!! surching for a balancer cable

I have a Hyperion EOS-0610iNET charger that will be charging the 2 cell 4900 trak power batteries. Where can I find a balancing cable for this setup. The only thread I found by searching was where someone said AMain Hobbies but I could'nt find it. Or is there a way to make an adapter?

Any help appreciated!!

Here is what I would build.

Use this 2s tap
http://www.maxamps.com/HYP-2S-Tap.htm
solder these banana plugs onto the outside wires http://www.radioshack.com/product/in...entPage=search
then a 2mm plug http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXJPY0&P=ML
to the middle wire and you have a adaptor that will plug into your Hyperion chrager.

You may need to use a voltmeter and check the pin order but I am pretty sure that is how it wires up.

Amainhobbies has three of the balance adapters in stock:

The only one they don't have is the one that uses Align, ProTek R/C and E-Flite plugs. Not sure which connector your Trak Power cells have on them?

Best regards,

Combine this info with the picture at the link below and I think it'll visualize easily (don't the TrakPower and Orion's balance the same?):

Thanks a lot glitchy. Thats the drawing I was searching for last night. Stefan cant wait to get his wraps this weekend Tres. We definately have something to look forward to. I just hope the weather holds off.
Thanks for the help Lockhart, I found that we can use the trak power balancer with the Hyperion so we are good to go!!
