Default Deans pigtail on conditioner board. Will it work?

So, Some of my 6 packs were soldered in reverse order ie:
- + - + - +
+ - + - + -

I use an LRP Battery Conditioner Board (if you have this board you know the tabs are not very long) But, I figure my reverse order is no problem since I would use a Deans connector (pig tails) connected to the far left neg and far right pos terminals.

Then just plug in to any order six pack.

Does this not work?

Uh, no, that won't work. The circuit(s) is(are) not complete. The point is to discharge each cell separately, so they retain their match as much as possible. You'll have to change your batteries.

If the battery bars you soldered the wires to aren't too tall, you can try just putting the battery in upside down and the polarities should match up

Can't you just flip the battery pack around so that the side with the pigtail is up against the board (with the pigtail pulled out the top so it's out of the way)? If the tabs on the discharge tray aren't tall enough to reach the contacts on the individual cells when it's in thie orientation maybe try wedging some of those spare battery bars you have there vertically between the cells and the tabs on the discharger. There is assuredly an easy solution without resoldering your packs.

Yes, I tried to flip the pack but the end tabs were too long (even bent them and still didn't fit) So, I decided to flip the tabs to the correct direction - the lables are facing down but no one cares. Man, I need a lot of solder practice! butt ugly!
