What do you guys think about small lipo (2S 400 mAh) that comes without balancer lead?

I've bought this one for a small indoor model to get the winter pass by faster and the shop I bought it from tolds me that a lot of small 2S battery don't come with a balancing lead. They save the weight and does not goes that much out of balance (because of 2S)

They were 13$ too... so I guess even if they don't last as long... it's not a bad deal...

It's stills bugs me and would like to know if anybody have more experience with them then me?

thanks!

You'll be fine. Many of us have been using small lipos without taps for several years and they work fine.

I got a fever! The only prescription is MORE 6HV

Best to charge it slowly, you stand less change of an imbalance causing a puffed cell.
