Default Balance Adapter Question

I know this is a nitro forum, but can anyone tell me what kind of balance adapter I need to balance this nitro receiver pack, it's the only one that fits the battery box of the D8T without jamming it in there. Thanks

I have actually been using this to charge and balance my receiver lipo. All you do is plug in the balancing connector and that's it.

I can run all weekend (Friday Practice, Sat 3 - 5 minute heats, Sun - 30 min main) and it charges my 2300mah lipo in about 45 min.

There are 2-3 different type of balance plugs out there and that does not include the bullit type. They each take a different board and usually 3-4 companies will fit the same board. For example Losi and Thunderpower take the same board. So which balance board does EH take??

I just bought one of these batteries from Lockmouth on here.. great deal on the battery! If you need one contact him.

Back to the battery, what plug should I use to the receiver? The one that is on there is smaller and a little fatter.. I will get close up pics of it when I have my camera.. damn girlfriend has it. Can I just replace that plug with a futaba servo one?

There are 4 balance connectors in popular use today - shown here with some of the diff brands of lipo that use them -

http://www.allerc.com/product_info.p...oducts_id=3160

The JST-XH has also been called the Align type connector and the others have been referred to as the Thunderpower type, the Kokam type and the PolyQuest type. There are some differences in how these types are wired and if one connector does fit a type other than what its made for, there may be probs.

scoopdaloop - think this is what you're looking for -

Your the man. I ordered the Hyperion balancer for it.. can't decide if I'm going to regulate or not, if I'm running the Hitec 7955 and the Futaba 9351 which are both rated at 6V won't I need the regulator?

I have been running unregulated lipos in my rx for years without any problem... I just make sure I charge it before raceday an I'm good for the entire day.
