Questions?? Lipo Balancer Lead length?

Is there a maximum length that balancer leads should be?

All the items available on the net appear to be very short which makes using it, especially if the pack is installed in the car, a pain.

I was going to make one up that was 20-30cm long, is this OK?

Thanks

I don't see why not, I've extended the cables on my trakpower balancer to over 30cm with no problems.Just made it easier to use with my lipo sack.

I don't see why it would be a problem, I would only extend one wire at a time of course to be safe.

Only issue I see you having is just a bunch of bundled wire in your car making it look messy.

No, this cable is to go between the charger and the flying lead already on the pack.
I'm sick of having to balance my pack by practically hanging my charger from the car using the 10cm balance lead.
