Default Balancing harness=Orion lipo BAtt./Core RC charger

Does anyone have a wiring set up for balancing while using a Core-RC charger to charge Orion Lipos? It would also apply for any 2 cell that does not have a balancing lead.
Pics would be helpful. Thank you.

Thanks Adam, I checked on their site, but they mostly have harnesses for the Hyperion charger. I sent an inquiry and will see what they say.

I'd be happy with another 2S balancing harness just like the one the Core chargers come with. Is there any way I can buy just that one part?

Thanks freddy, that was the article that inspired me to look for an extra connector to make my own harness. But thanks anyways!

I found a supplier for the connectors, I only wish there was something pre-built.

Here you go, DIYers!

After doing a lot of research, I've come to the conclusions that given the Core UDC-20 charger and balancing harness it comes with:

The Core charger and the harness connector that plugs INTO the charger are JST-XH.

The Core 5000 lipo battery balancing connector and the harness connector that plugs INTO the battery are JST-EH

I was thinking, if all the plugs are JST-EH, then why can't you plug the battery into the charger directly without the harness the UDC-20 comes with? (You can kinda jam it in there, but it's not a perfect, direct fit)

So, for anyone wanting to make the above Nexusracing harness without hacking up the harness that comes with the Core UDC-20 charger, you need the receptacle (female) end of a JST-XH connector.

On a separate note, the Reedy 5000 lipo has a JST-XH connector so it'll just fit into the side of the charger without any harnesses at all (which is what I think Core should've done in the first place with their own batteries).
