I am trying to do some paralle charging with my thunder power 1010c and 210 balancer. I was wondering what kind of balancer plug does TP use? I am mainly use 3s and 2s on my stuffs. Where would I find them? I would need both male and female plugs.
Thank you.

Progressive r/c . com

both are very good sources. I have used EP Buddy. The parallel board is less costly than the parallel cables because it covers 2s - 6s charge and balance taps all on one compact unit.

At the field I usually parallel charge without balancing as it takes too long. When I get home I charge/balance at 1C to get any cells that may have gotten off back in line one battery at a time. I've gone as much as 5 cycles and never had a cell go more than .05 volts off the others. I know this wasn't your question but may be something to consider in the meantime till your connectors get here.

High Voltage just works better

I like those Paraboards. Too bad they don't have one for EC5. Also wouldn't work for PL8 charger without rewiring the connector plug into charger. The board would make for a nice tidy charge area though. The parallel cables can look like a squirrel's nest.

You can do that or set charger for quick charge if it has the capability like the PL8. This eliminates that last bit of balancing at the end which takes so long, yet still provides the safety of balancing during the remaining charge.
