Charge two of your 3S packs with the 1 single 6S plug.
Great for those with a charger that can handle 6S and want to charge two 3S packs at the same time.
*Warning. Do not use this item unless you know what youre doing. Incorrect connections to the iMAX charger will cause a short circuit. *For the iMAX style charger, please use the Twins system found in our store.
Will this one work with iCharger 106B ? Were planning on using it on 2x"B-grade 5000mAh 3S" packs for groundstation. And don't wanna parallell- charge since it's B-grade. Or will I have to use the "Twins system" mentioned in the product- description* Which obviously won't be able to handle the current that I can charge with this one.....
Will credit if I figure out how to do it. *)
PS! Have made a "serial plug" for the discharge- wires. And made a schematics of the connection, and can't see a problem using this splitter as long as I connect the (bare with me, difficult to frase this correct/easy) end pins of discharge the same way as balanceplug. The positive and negative dischargecables that will have to be connected to each other from battery, match the center balanceplug- pin. Believe that it will work with that setup.?
What am i doing wrong? Can you help with some suggestions. I will credit for the best answer.
I want to serial balance charge two 3S lipo batteries, each battery of 2200mha with the charger Turnigy Accucel-6.
To be able to do that, I bought this splitter (AM-1201-R) and a 2-pack in series harness (601-2PSeries). My goal is connect them and let the changer think that it is a 6S battery and balance charge all cells.
When i connect the two batteries to this splitter (AM-1201-R) and i check it with my battery tester, it works, it shows me a 6S battery and the voltage of each individual cell. But when i try to add the 2-pack series harness (601-2PSeries), the batteries are shorting, there is sparks and immediately disconnected the main lead.
I tried the other way around. I first connect the 2-pack series harness (601-2PSeries) and everything was fine. But then i wanted to add the balance splitter (AM-1201-R) and this time it was the splitter who was catching fire. I really don't know what is the problem, i checked a few manuals on internet on how to connect two lipo batteries in series using the balance port and the main lead and all looks fine, but when i do it then the connections are shorting. Again, i used this cable splitter and the 2-pack series harness (601-2PSeries)
What is the problem? Please offer me some suggestions.
get everything plugged in and see if you see all six cells. If not, switch either the main charge leads or the balance leads between the batteries. It will only work correctly if it is plugged in a certain way. It needs to look this: target=_blank>
If you wish to charge two 3s batteries in series, i.e. as one 6s * you need the following adaptors, For balance leads Part# 210000104 and for charge lead Part # TRXplugseri N.B. this is for traxxas plugs, you will need different type if you have other style plugs. Hope this helps.
It is clear from the interest in this adapter and other similar ones that we want to be able to charge more than one identical battery at the same time in the field....Has anyone found such an adapter designed to charge TWO 2s batteries at once? Please give Product ID # or other info that will not be deleted by the discussion police!
Mark we need one for 7 s there is non made they are EXACTLY the same system Why do you contradict something that you do not know the facts about???????????? you " think" trying asking some one that KNOWS
Hi, I have used this to charge two three cell batteries. It works fine. I pulled the wires out, you do not have to cut them. I moved everything over one notch to charge two two cell batteries at one time. Use the cell checker that HobbyKing sells before you plug it into the charger so you know if it is wired up right. With trail and erroe you should be able to do it. Watch out and do not ground out the two packs and short them out.
Yes, but be careful. The batteries need to be the same MAH, In other words if you have a 2S 2200 and a 3S 2200 then it would work, but you do not want to charge a 2S 2200 and a 3S 3000 together. When you connect the wiring, you will need to have 2 cables in a "Y" configuration. If you have problems with this let me know and I will draw it out and PDF it to a file in the files section.
That wouldn't work unfortunately. The black wires connect to the common negative of the pack. You would have to cut the outer red wire and replace the 3s socket with a 2s socket ussing the 2 white wires and the black wire.
I have two 3s 2200mAh and a Turnigy accucell 6 charger. What connectors do I need to charge 2 batteries at the same time? Can I get 2 batteries charged in one hour puting 4.4 A in the charge?
For charging 2 batteries at a time you need this one(or another one for your type of battery balance connector) and a serial power cable (like this www.link ) Plug two batteries in serial order and set your accucell to 6S battery. Everything must be fine.
The max. charging power of your battery depends on it's properties. I'd rather charge batteries with low current cuz high current shortens the life of battery anyway.
I think You'll also need the twin pack charge lead. I've just bout these to help monitor and charge 2x 3S 2200mah batteries. The Accucel 6 is only a 50W charger so if you charge a 6S you can only do this at max 2.2A (2.2Ax22.2V=44.8W). This is 1C or 1hr charge for 2200mah batteries.
The idea is to make the charger think it's connected to a 6S battery instead of a 3S. So voltage will be 22,2 instead of 11,1 and capacity will remain 2200 mAh. You need a 2x3S->6S splitter (the item you are looking at) and a 2-pack in series harness such as this (product AM-8014: www.link connect the 2 balancer plugs to the 2x3S splitter and the two main battery plugs to the 2-pack in series harness, then you connect the splitter and the harness to your charger and you select a 6S 2200 mAh battery and you will have 2 batteries chraged in 1 hour. Ciao!
depending what the charging C rate is on your batterys.If you mean 1C x 2 2200mah then NO it would atualy be 2C if you use a splitter as the charger will try to push that charge Amps into all 6 cells at once OK.So 2.2amp or 1C for the two will be OK but does your charger put the charge out the "balance wires" as that is what the splitter is doin,joining the two balance lines.Although I know some chargers do use this method but mine haven't so I'm doin a little educated guess work here OK.But I am sure of the amp stuff*-)
I think you have to use the "Twins" charge lead adapter instead. The accucell6 needs a "closed circuit" via the pack discharge lead to function in balance mode. I have both the accucell6 and a Twins adapter and both work great.
Some extra info in addition to my earlier comment/review:
I use this config to monitor my 2x3s lipo's with Quanum telemetry. My 2x3S lipo appear as one 6s lipo in Quanum display. Now i can monitor every cell of my two 3s pacs and monitor the mAH usage. But remember cut the middle red wire (details see link in earlier comment).
A must have for every electroflier.

helped me a lot in charging the battries by reducign the time. (charging two battries at the same time). but you should connect the balance blug of the battries first, then connect the other side to the charger, finally connect the big wires to avoid the sparks which my burn the balancing lead.
I use Turnigy-6 with these adapters. Censures are not present. I plan to use them and with HobbyCity Quattro with indispensable success.

Please note that if you charge with balanceport you can use them as is. But if you charge with main chargeleads, you have to cut the middle red wire. See: http://scriptasylum.com/rc_speed/_lipo.html select the last scheme. Select main chargeleads or balance charge
