I like the look of the tuning hause ones, but just wish they were longer. Id like to see some 1m /3ft pre-made cables.

The problem is if you double the length, you'll have to double the wire size for the same current, and the people using these chargers (not for bling) are charging at amps that need arc welding cable.

I wanted longer than Tuning Haus as well. I made my own using TQ 2211 balance connectors, Tuning Haus 4mm/5mm combo bullet connectors and 12g Novak silicone wire in 600mm lengths. I charge 2S at 40 amps and the wire is just warm. Works great! The cable wrap can be picked up at Frys for cheap along with the heat shrink.

So in using this cable you don't need to use the balancing board right? Just plug into the charger directly?

Yes. However, even though the cable uses only a 3 wire plug, do NOT plug it into the three wire jack in the charger. That is the temp sensor port. You use the right hand most three pins of the larger jack, which is the balancing port. It helps to use a Xacto blade to cut the left hand nub on top of the connector off, so that it fits easier into the port on the charger.

On a loosely related side note... I also just plug the balance lead on my tx pack directly into the charger, then you just need a regular +/- charge lead for the tx pack and you're done.

When charging a 2s, the red balancing lead gets plugged into the 2mm tube on the red bullet plug, and the blue 2mm balancing wire plugs into the balancing port on the battery.

For a 1s pack, the blue balancing wire goes in the 2mm tube on the red bullet plug, and the red wire just hangs free.
