Please don't laugh.
Is it posible to charge a 10s pack throught the standard deans connectors while the 2, 6pin battery connectors are connected to the balancer. As long as I know the manual says you can do that but I want to be shure.

thanks

I just tried charging my 10s pack with the 210V balancer instaled and I noticed that the balancer gets hot. Wonder if it is normal when charging.
When you press start to check the battery pack both lights the red's and the yellos stayed on for 5 seconds. That mean pack is balanced. However, when charging the redlights start blinking with no special behavior (like crazy). Is it normal when charging too??

Thanks for your comments

Ok, now I'm confused. A friend of mine told me it is not good to install the balancer while charging through the deans connector. Can sombody post just one picture on how to do it or at least give some guidance.

Anyone

Your friend is wrong IMO, the smartest way to ever charge a multi-cell LiPo is with the balancer always connected. With the TP 1010 and 210 setup this creates a fail safe system that will turn off the charger if there is a problem at a cell. Also, the balancer gets hot because it is balancing the pack - it is supposed to do that.

Are you using a 1010 charger? If not, you may need to balance the cells on the balancer first - until the balancer says they are balanced. And then plug the charger in (leave the balancer hooked up during the charge so it can bleed off any over voltage during the cycle).

I would recommend just getting a 1010 charger if you dont have one, that way your balancer and charger can be connected and communicate with each other during the charge process - its almost foolproof when you use the two together (never leave them unattended, regardless).

Many thanks RCHeliJim. I use an Orbit Microlader Pro charger.
Can you tell how long does it takes to balance a 10s lipo?

I can tell you that this TP210 balancer gets really hot when charging and balancing at the same time. Can somebody tell me what does the "T" blinking letter shown in the Accu current display mean??

"T" blinking
I have had the "T" blink come on a few times on my orbit. I think it means "tempreture" (ie high tempreture, either the battery or the connectors- the current will be adjusted by the charger accordingly).

I second RCHeliJim

If the balancer gets hot its a sign that your lipo is out of balance. You could try attaching it before charging and wait for it to finish balancing the pack before charging the pack. Let the balancer stay connected through the charge.
