Default Balancing charge lead help!

I have a track power VR-1 charger. Ought from friend, didnít have any balance boards or leads. I have leads made up for 2S balance charging from my Orion charger and hitech that I no longer have, but I believe the pin orientation is different maybe? Cause with no battery connected and the balance plug in its reading almost 6 volts on cell one.

here is a pic of port. Should the negative wire be far left, and then cell 1 far right and then cell 2 the next and so on and so on?

I figured it out. Far right is negative, then each cell after that. Thatís how itís working right now anyway. LoL

This is correct. Pins 1-6 are in order of increasing voltage. Ie:

pin 1 = 0V (or negative)
Pin 2 = +1s vs pin 1,
Pin 3 = +1s vs pin 2,
Pin 4 = +1s vs pin 3
Etc
Obviously, for a 2s pack you only use 3 pins.
