I just made one from a plug that came with my charger. It balanced it just perfect.

Here is a picture of what I did. I use the Core R/C charger/balancer.

I use Hyperion chargers and they make a balancing adapter that fits the Thunder Power plug specifically. Would it work for your charger?

Hello everyone, I'm glad to hear everyone is happy with our batteries and chargers. Because ther are so many different battery and chargers we don't make balancing plugs for every config. However RcLipos.com does. Here is the link.

Hope this helps.

Sorry, I'm looking for the battery itself.

I have 2 Thunder Power Rc 40C 5000 Lipo, a Hyperion EOS 0610i 6S 16N DUO CHARGER, with the built in balancer and plug adapters.

I'm pretty new to this setup, how do I set up the Hyperion to charge correctly at 1C or 2C?

I don't know how to set up the Hyperion charger, but a 1c charge rate would be 5.0 amps and a 2c charge rate would be 10.0 amps for the Thunder power 5000's. I would stick to the 1c rate. I havent seen any performace gain from a 2c rate, just faster charging.

Only setup is configuring one of your memory positions -
  • Battery type - LiPo
  • Battery volts - 7.4 (2S)
  • Battery capacity - 5000 mAh
  • Charge current - 5.0A (1C)

I always run mine in series with two 7.4v hardcase packs on my 1/8th scale brushless this way I can still use my batteries on my TC.
