I've always used Thunder Power batteries so all my parallel balance boards, cables, etc. have TP plugs.

I recently purchased a new pair of 6S packs and was surprised when they came with JST balance plugs. I contacted TP and they told me they changed over to JST plugs about a year ago. Great! I'm wired for TP plugs and they throw me a curve ball like this. I still have TP batteries with the old balance plugs so now I need to come up with a work around.

Has anyone else had this issue? I contacted Progressive RC and they have adaptor cables to go from a JST male to TP females but not the other way around. I guess I may have to buy a new JST parallel balance board and cables THEN the adapter cables to balance my old TP batteries.

Why does it always need to be so darn complicated??? LOL

Get or make an adapter to use JST balance lead to the TP connectors of your charger setup

Male JST to TP Female TP

After you do this, you can use majority of the packs currently on the market.

Hope this helps

You are welcome. The funny thing was, I saw them on the site while shopping the same day you were posting. Saw your post the next day while the info was still fresh in my mind.
