I thought this was too good to be true. But it might be salvaged.
I bought a Flightpower V-balancer and it came to me as a TRAKpower V-balancer instead part #FPWC0110. Gold plated instead of black. Flightpower advertises the two seperate on their site but I can't find a difference in the descriptions. Does anyone know if these unit are the same? Calling Flightpower tomorrow I guess.
So much for soldering connectors on tonight!!

$20 in savings on this sale just cost me a evening of maintenance.

Flightpower answer
They are the same according to FP just the included leads are different.

I would think they are the same device, but what kind of balance lead is supplied with the TrakPower device?

You can see the lead they gave me with the trakpower unit in the picture on the left in my first post. It's for cars I assume. I had the right adapter in my box for it to work with my FP's.

The bullet connectors plug into the car packs and the harness is made up the balance the packs. If you look close there is a set of bullets plugged into the back of the bullets that have the balance taps attached to them. All you have to do is get the correct balance taps and then make an adapter or solder the connector you are using to connect it to your packs.
