    Charging question

    So I have a Thunder AC6 charger that I used on my R/C planes. I recently got a ruslter and 2 traxxas 2s lipos. I bought the traxxas ID connector charging lead with the banana connectors.

    Will this properly balance charge my Traxxas lipos? Only curious because there's no balance lead coming off the traxxas battery to connect to the balance board.

    Thanks.

    Nope. You’ll have to buy an adapter to charge.

    The Thunder does not have the balance ports built in like the iD chargers do. Since the Traxxas batteries have the balance leads integrated with the main plug you'll need a separate charging adapter.

    Ok so I already bought this

    So I also need what you posted above to plug into the end of the banana plugs?

    Thanks

    Banana ends go to charger. iD end of battery and adapter plug together. Plug the two Traxxas ends together and then the balance plug to the board.
