Default Balancing Team Orion Carbon Edition 3200

I have ordered a Team Orion Carbon Edition 3200 mAh LiPo battery and in the description it states that it has an "installed equalizing/balancing port". I have an ICE charger and was wondering what kind of adapter I need to hook up the ICE to the installed balancing port? Thanks Ralf

Pic will explain what you need to do (pic courtesy of Orion). You would need an external balancer for your ICE such as the Orion Stability Balancing System.

BTW, with the Orion packs balancing isn't really that necessary.

Thanks, I was told that the battery will hold up better over time if it is balanced when charging. Not added performance but lengthening the useful life of the battery. Ralf
