TP balance taps and balancing??
Hey, I just got a TP battery 6s2p, and since it has 2 balance taps, I have a Astro blinky balancer but it can only plug into one tap at once, is anybody else using this balancer with a TP battery??

Hi Wedge,

The first tap is for the 5 first cells, and the second one is for the last cell. When connected to the TP balancer it will see all 6 cells.

If the blinky is the same 3-cell balancer that I think of it will be hard to use it with your pack. You might as well just use a voltmeter and check each cell to see if it needs any balancing.


What comes around goes around.

Its probably cheaper for TP to just have two different plugs (4 and 6 leads) to deal with

Perhaps you could get one each of these

to connect to your TP pack and then solder on a female plug on the leads of these that the blinky can go into? Or maybe someone have allready made a converter for it?
