Lipos with Wrong Polarity
I bought 3 lipos, the 15C 2100mAh variety, from All-Battery in SunnyVale, CA. After 2 weeks, I was sent the goods. As I plugged them in to recharge them, my charger howled like a dog on a full-moon. Upon, close inspection, I noticed that the polarity on the balance connector is reversed. It's unbelievable that they would ship out all 3 batteries like that. I'm lucky my charger howled...

I'd be willing to bet that on about half the chargers on the market the polarity is fine like with my blinky for example, I'd simply plug it in black to black and all would be well.~~OCHC~~

I don't get it.
Are you saying even though the colors of the wires in the picture are oriented the same, and the batteries are shipped from the same source, the polarity is different?

Yes and the connector pin location and connector sizes are different. You almost have to buy the battery and balancers fron the same manufacturer to get a the same conectors.YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE..IF YOU LIVE IT RIGHT THATS ALL YOU NEED

The balance plug, as you know, only goes one way. From the picture, it should be Red, Yellow, White, Black. So, they installed the plug the wrong way.

No there are different kinds that are different ways, stupid I know, but this is why DN power batteries come with a reverse polarity plug....because some balancers will be fine and some it will be backwards.

Thanks Nick for the explanation. Wow, what an eye opener. And I thought plus and minus are pretty much standardized, since I own an Align charger, a eSky charger, and a HeliMax charger. The All-Battery lipo couldn't be charged with any of the above. Doh!

thats what you will need"

Or you could just push the pins out of the balance connector and put them back in the right order. Just be careful not to short the pins together while they are out. Just cap 'em off with some short pieces of fuel tubing while they wait their turns to be inserted back into the connector.

A digital multimeter will let you use any battery w/ any balancer and charger combo . Ran into this problem w/ TP 6S to blinky and Venom 3S to blinky . A simple check and the switching of a few wires fixed that problem . If you're not living on the edge you're just taking up space !
