I understand a very wee bit, but I'm entering a new era and need the basics with the requirements/ function and purpose on a stand alone balancer / monitor to plug into my Accu cycle Elite and what is it actually doing ?? I assume nothing from the white papers I'm reading.
.
I understand that the software will not communicate between the two
but their must be a purpose of the balancer option as a preventative / correction tool.

I only plan to charge one pack at a time at 1 C and want the bear bone basics / keep it simple as I go thru the learning curve.

I know it is not top line - but what do I need to get started safely ?? The Elite has a thermocouple out put's but no leads for the cell balancer.

One last question ? What is the little circuit board I see guy's carrying in their pocket that they plug into their balance leads ??

I assume their monitoring individual cell levels.

Please go slow , basics : 101 Entry Level

Thanx

A balancer lowers the voltage of the high cells to match the voltage of the lower cells. very simple, nothing tricky.

if you want simple the blinky is easy as it gets

or if you want that cool little circuit board that checks your cell voltage AND will balance all in one. It's nice as you'll never try to fly a dead pack

I used the accu-cycle elite for a long time, it was a fantastic easy to use charger. I only changed cause I wanted to charge faster

When you get into the high end chargers that balance charge thru the balance taps then there is more to learn, as there are 2 basic methods chargers use to do that. There is a big debate as to which is better. the two big players that get pitted against each other are the Cellpro and the Hyperion. I am just an end user so the result is all I have cared about. I have both and they both work great to charge at high C values.

smarter people than I can jump in here and explain the ins and outs of them
