With balance plug properly connected ... secure wires into connector with HOT melt glue.
Not cool melt, not warm melt and not multi-temp ... HOT melt glue.
I don't have glue or a glue gun. I never used it before for anything. When I get some money I will look around at Wall Mart. It is the end of the month now and am broke as usual. I will look on you tube and see if there is a video on it. Thanks for posting DA.
I just found a brand new 6S - Y balance cable sitting in my drawer. under my 49" 4K TV. I keep odds and ends there. I hate unhooking and hooking balance plugs up in parallel for combining two packs expecially after that nasty spark I get about every other time I do it.
I will be glad when I get two new multistar 10S packs hopefully next month. I wont have to deal with that then as I will charge them seperate. I can charge them at the same time as I have the two LiPo chargers.
Thanks for posting DA. I will look on you tube now.
I found that. That could prevent the wires from falling off. I will look to see if they have a wire which prevents sparks. I did not get scared when I got the spark. I am used to LiPo. I just do not want to damage the plug as it may not work properly.

I will be ordering those ASAP.
OK. I found it.
There is another good idea. The hot glue idea is the best but was wondering if the LiPo protecters could be put on over the hot glue before it gets hard. Togeather I would never have to worry and would have something to grip when pluging into the charger. the other plug extensions would only need the glue but the end which plugs in the charger may benifit from both the glue and protecter.
I was wondering if it would be possible to make my own pre hook up cable for combining packs. I made one for the series connection which I use every time I hook two 6S packs in series. I would just need 7-10 ohm resisters ? Or would I need a different ohm.
I plan on building it soon. I also plan on taking the 6S packs out of the cash box as I can't really see the original balance plugs coming from each pack. I can only see the extensions and Y balance plugs.
I unhooked them and tested each pack from the extensions the other day when I got the false reading on the Skycharger and all cells showed up on the balancer however I would like to hot glue each connecter coming from each pack just so I know I wont have to deal with a short or bad cell from improper balancing in the future.
This is important as a big spark can scorch a balance plug and actually has. There are black marks on at least two balance plugs that I know of. The gold ties are exellent for securing the balance leads to keep them out of harms way when runing. My ol lady saves them from the packages of Stewerts coffee. They are used to seal the bags of large Stewerts coffee and when the bag is empty are easy to remove.
The better option however is to replace with new shorter cables. Those long ones will work great for wiring up 18650 - 6S packs for balancing. They can be refurbished with hot glue and balance plug protecters. I did not give up on building 18650 packs. I am simply ordering two 10.0 - 6S multistars for now but will be looking for a good deal on 18650 cells in the future.
Please let me know how many ohms each resister should be and I could use crimp on connecters and put hot glue over the connecters and wires so they can't pull out or I could solder and shrink wrap.
OK. That video really don't make any sense to me. I have seen videos of people puncturing LiPo with a hammer and nail and the LiPo catches on fire. I am confused. Basically that guy looks a lot like my best friend downtown I drink with once or twice a week. My friend just has longer hair and a big beard. Mabye it is his brother.
That is what should have happened. Lord only knows the health hazzards from breathing that gas in.
I am more scared of inhaling the smoke that anything catching on fire however have two 10.0 - 6S packs and two 8.0 - 6S packs each with a single bad cell.
I would love to remove each cell and have four 5S packs. Then order four 5S balance plugs. I can then simply shoot the four bad cells with my pellet pistol in my back yard to see which will turn into a smoke bomb and which ones won't. Obviouslly all LiPos are NOT created equel. The difference in those videos prove that. The big question is which ones are safe to puncture and which ones are not and how to tell the difference. Thanks and please let me know.
