I just read somones post today where they never balance charge anything and flat out argue that its not necessary and is harmful to the batts.

Of course I strongly disagree with that sort of thing and want to know what the rest of us are doing and or think about it.

Thanx in advance for your input.

They are dead wrong, PERIOD. Balance charging is as safe as it gets with a Lithium pack. I balance charge every single time I charge the pack, heck my charger fills up the cells through the balance port I see absolutely no reason to not balance charge every single cycle.

Ignore them, they are uninformed on the benefits of keeping your cells balanced....

What logical explanation did they have to back up their claims?? None I wager.

I balance my 6S and 10S packs but not my 3S packs. I have checked the 3S packs everynow and again and balance charged them but they are fine.

Why would almost every lipo pack on the market today have balance taps if they were not needed? My first gen TP cells had no balance taps and they didnt last long. My TP prolites 15C's had balance taps and have well over 150 cycles on them and are still strong. I balance every lipo every charge.

I balance charge all my packs with my TP1010C w/ TP210V every charge. From my 2S lipo rx packs, 3S, 6s, they all get balance charged. Don't take up any more time than not balance charging. It doesn't hurt to balance charge every time so why not just do it instead of risking an expensive battery pack.

Just my opinion
