You can also use this JST-XH Balance Parallel piombo 3S 250 mm in order to connect this also: Cella Checker(2S-8S) ??

I'm having the same issue. I want one for 2s and I can't find one. Kaushal - If you can use this for 4s kindly explain how. This is a 3s adapter

Solder on from perf board and copper tape or copper wire and header pins. All should eventually be in your kit sooner or later

I'm thinking about buying a second lead, maybe a 4s extension, and splicing the two together to make this work with a 4s battery.

I am running my x900 on a 4 cell and sometimes a 6 cell. All of the options here seem to be for 3 cell. I cant see a product or a mod. Any ideas?

You acn use it with a 4S no problem.
 canterburyflyer 331 points
Yeah? And how are you going to get the balance plug into that male DF13 header block. It only allows for 4 pins so it won't let you squeeze another in there!

Just cut one of the sides off. Then you just have an unused pin hanging out.

Please may I see a picture of this mod, if you have one available marcopico?
 marcopico 107 points
I don't have a picture, it's not something I have done, but the idea is just to cut a part of the white connector (JST-XH), so you cant fit the 4S or more equivalent. Be careful though because you will only be using the first 3 cells of your battery pack in this configuration.

I've looked into this further since this morning, and I believe doing it this way, or even the way I suggested above, would overload the LEDs I planned to power. I think the best route for me to take would be a BEC since I'm running a 4s battery.

Can i use this to power up my gimbal? Thanks
 Kaushal(India) 62 points
Yes, you can

The picture that is above is correct but I'm telling you mine was wrong. If the one I received was correct then all the other JST connectors I have are wrong. On the KK 2 LCD you can add a pigtail so you can see battery voltage on screen and it was wired right because I used it before without smoke. I can't believe that all the other JST connectors on batteries and sets I have gotten from HK are wrong and this one is correct besides I now see a WARNING: Check Polarity of your setup before connecting this harness so they must had some get by wrong.

BE WARNED!!! JST polarity comes opposite to what it should be! Don't assume every connection factory-made are correct. Killed a couple of strips of LEDs with this distribution lead :( ( thus low in quality ) Other than the wrong polarity, it is a handy cable to supply power to LEDs or other application. ( thus not bad on value )

nice if you need a tidied up power distribution for several individual leds or sets - although i prefer the multi remote switch www.link for the blinker of me and my little sibling's truck.
What i am thinking of using this for is for a power supply switch which switches between batteries (controlled by a micro processor). but i'm not sure yet, if it all works as expected. Shall be some kind of redundancy for a critical Quadcopter Application.

These are great!. I hated soldering JST wires to my power cables, Now I don't have to. If you want to use them on bigger or smaller batteries just get the corresponding balance connector and solder it on in place of the one that it comes with. Just remember not to reverse polarity when replacing connector and these only tap off one cell so your LED's may not be as bright as if you hooked them up to your power cable.

WARNING! These connectors are wired wrong. I ordered 3 of these and all of the 4 JST connectors were wired in reverse polarity. I wasn't paying enough attention when testing a LED strip controller and burned up the wires on my 40amp ESC. You can correct this by using a paper clip or something very small and push down on the tiny metal tab on the pin in the JST connector and pulling on the wire and the pin will pull out of the connector. Make sure to bend the tab back up before you put it back in the correct position in the connector as this is what locks it in the connector.
