I just bought two new Air Thunder 3s 2200's to match my other 4 At's.
I get them in the mail today, check them out and now they are made with Thunder Power balancer taps. Here is my problem. I just spent alot of money on a Hyperion Duo charger. I had to buy additional balancer boards to match my AT's balance taps. They match my old AT's, but now I have 2 lipos that I cannot balance until I buy another balancer board for TP! GRRRRRRRR.

I cant win.

The only other difference I see in the new At's is a little more length in the wire leads on both the taps and power leads. They also route the power leads off the other side of the pack, not like my older ones.

Does anyody know if the cells are still the same manufacturer?

I hope they did not change those......I have had nothing but the best of luck with those.

No I got them from another dealer. Thanks for the offer though. Does purehobby sell tp to align adapters? All I can find is align to tp.

That would let me keep the two boards I just bought and not have to keep switching them back and forth between AT lipos.

I called AT to see if it was a mistake. They said some dealers order them in bulk with tp taps. The cells are the same and it depends on who put that pack together on power wire length. The wire is the same gauge, a little less flexable though.

what a bummer I have never seen an air thunder pack with a tp tap. Sorry I do not carry them going that way but I would think the place you bought them might.

No they dont. I might have to buy two ends and solder them together or buy a tp bal board. I didnt want to have to switch balance boards between lipos though.

I was able to find a pack of adaptors that go from TP to Align. They are actually EFLITE to Align balance adaptors. Problem solved. This way I didnt have to buy another Hyperion balancer board.
