Default TURBO 35 WITH LIPO UPGRADE

Guys,I just recieved my charger back from a software and lipo upgrade and was wondering what others are using for balancers with these units with the small gauge wire leads?Thanks for the help.

The small gauge wire leads are for total batt voltage reading.They use the voltage reading wires to get a more acuate voltage reading.Attach the leads on the batt side of your connector.DO NOT use the charger without attaching the leads...batt voltage will go to high (8.5v).I found this out by accident and ruined two LiPo batts.At first I thought "COOL higher voltage=more speed" and it was a rocket for a while,but then the Batts started to go very flat after 3mins. I use the Astro Blinky the balance charge the batts

How did you connect the Blinky to the small black and red leads from the charger?

I don't think you would, I have my sensor leads just wired to the dean's and the blinky would be separate
