Default Hyperion Balancing taps question

I have a Hyperion EOS 0606i DC charger. I am looking for a hard case ROAR approved battery that I can use in my RC10-T4.

I have looked everywhere and I only see other taps for the batteries. Either proprietary or just another plug.

Do I need to buy a converter for the battery, charger, etc? or what?

What are you other Hyperion users doing?

I don't have any 2 cell hard packs but I do use Hyperion. You can get a hyperion 2 cell side tap(3 wires). Wire the red wire from the tap to the positive wire on the battery, wire the middle wire from the tap to the plug that goes in the balance port on the battery (you will need to get that plug from the battery mfg). Wire the last wire from the tap to the negative battery wire & you should be good to go.

Thank you. Where can I get the "hyperion 2 cell side tap(3 wires)" Do I have to call Hyperion or is that something hobby stores sell?

See if you can determine what type of plug it has, look at the left side of the image on this page.
