Ive got 3 thunder power 2250mah, 45C 3S batteries but the female 3s binding plug on my Venom pro charger is too big for the male binding plug on the battery itself. best way to describe it is that it has the correct number of pins, but the physical plug is smaller and doesnt fit into the slot for it.

Im putting together an order at helidirect and am about 20 bucks away from free shipping. does anybody know of a balancing board that will plug into my charger but will accept my batteries?

if more info is needed feel free to ask. thanks for the help

The balance tab on the Thunder power is called a..... Thunderpower Tab. A few companies use them. The other common one is the "Align" tab which is bigger. The hyperion is basically a align with a useless extra space between the wires.

And fung, why are you even posting here if you dont do anyting but hijack the thread?

Heres a balancer adapter, short of your $20 for free shipping

Look at my profile. I have the better version -____-. I know you feel tonmarchelli, the manual sucks so bad(No offense, lots of people say that too). Just go buy a thunderpower banana plug balancer and it should fit in fine. As for the deans the Venom kind is kinda okay but it is a bit crooked for mine. If you have anymore questions ask me

Edit: Or you can go on ebay and buy some align connectors...

Ya
Need a balance plug adapter board: Their about $3.00.

You can then jump your balance tap's or any of the wiz bang gadgets all over the place. You can get pretty wild with them

I think the pin spacing is 2mm / and or / 2.5. Most vendors list the specific battery's balance plug spacing. Once you start sniffing the site's you'll figure it out.

I use the same charger, and with my Thunder Power batteries, I use a Thunder Power TP-205 external balancer, which will balance up to a 5 cell pack. It works wonderfully with the venom charger. Just plug in your balance tab to the 3 cell slot of the external balancer, and plug your deans to the charger, set it to lipo charge 2.2 amps, 11.1v, and your good to go. I wasnt sure if the charger would start without the built in balancer receiving information, but it does! BTW I love that charger, but I've heard not so good things about the new version of it....

Not wining any friends with that bone-head statement.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.
