Who's got a Blinky and what do you think of it. How's it working for you, is it accurate enough, is it fast enough, is it easy to use???

Balancens to within 0.02 on 3S packs. Pins are 0.025sq. on 0.100 centers. Mates with Apogee ,VAMPower,2DogRC ,Electric Power 3S Lipolys. Will work with PQ,Hyperion will you move the connectors in the taps connector housings on these.
It is a little slow and it wants to balance / limit charge to 4.15 vots per cell.

Got a TP-205 after some dissatisfaction from my blinkies (V1 and 2). After trying the 205 I don't even touch the blinky. It is better than nothing, but I prefer to keep things close in tolerance. As close as I was doing it manually before I bought a balancer is nice. It actually made my 4s packs voltages worse than they were before starting.

I also get better results with my 205 then the blinky. The 205 is more accurate and faster, and since the blinky trys to limit the voltage to 4.15 volts, it tends to fight the charger while charging. IMHO the Blinky is best used before or after a charge. In fact the 205 is the best balancer I have tried so far, but then I only tried three. Thinking about getting a Hyperion balancer to see how it performs.

Hi Doug,
I will soon have a Hyperion LBA 6 to go with my Suzannes',TP-205 / TP-210,VAMPower,and Blinky balancers. I will post my results as usual as soon as I have had a chance to wring it out a little.

Hi Charles

It has been so long since I used Suzannes', I forgot I even had them. :o Guess that makes four balancers I have tried. Be sure and keep us informed on the LBA 6. Thanks

You do know Suzanne is working on a super duper charger/balancer/safety over voltage cutoff etc. unit?


Edit: Well I can not find the post so maybe I imagined it but then I often have a hard time finding a post.

Cool...........I sure didn't know that! This battery balancer, charger, performance thing has sure come a long way in the last couple years. Can't wait to see what is around the next corner.:D
