no way would i try to draw any significant current through those small balance wires.
as as for the bullet sizes, those are not an issue either.
i would be changing the connectors on the batteries anyways.
neptronix wrote:Those charge adapters are not good for discharge ( they are rated at 20-30A maximum, but will probably induce plenty of resistance at the upper end of their handling ). So you'll have to make your own harnesses anyway.
Better start learning to solder if you wanna go the lipo way :] or hit up icecube57 if he's still making harnesses and you've got a little cash to blow.

Balance plug, it would error I think. It would see the full 7S voltage and assume that the 4S balance was over charged. ..

neptronix wrote:The only charger i know of with a 7S port is the hyperion lineup.
I dunno why they chose this method either, i'd think of using an 8S connector and have it be missing a pin.. that would work with more chargers, overall. But then that wouldn't work with the hyperions, lol.
This is just a weird voltage, but at least there is a 4s + 3s adapter mentioned above.
Diamondback wrote:so it seems that it the Hyperion will charge with no balance plug fitted.
i wouldn't feel safe just charging a lithium type pack with no balancing happening.
i know that a lot of people here will say it's ok, but id rather not..
cwah wrote:Actually, if the hyperion can't charge them 'out of the box', which charger can charge them?

Isn't it a bit expensive?
