Lightbulb Important LipoSack modification

Folks:

You have spoken and we have listened (again).

After we attended the AMA Expo and listening to various suggestions, one we decided to immediately implement solves a nagging issue with our charge bags.
The question heard was (and has been for a while) is "How do I get to those darned short balance leads?"

The issue quite honestly hasn't been a problem for me personally since I use Blinky balancers and I'm very "hands on" during charging but for the majority of users this has been a problem so we solved it in our typical, simple manner. I apologize since this should have been done years ago.

On all of our charging bags there is now a reinforced 1" port at the bottom corner of the bag that allows the user to thread the charging and balance leads easily out of the bag to access those short leads. This alleviates two issues.
1) As noted, the end users can now access their balance leads without having to resort to balance lead extensions which can effect the balancing circuit due to increased resistance.
2) It "encourages" placement of the battery at the bottom of the bag where the system is most effective.

Thanks to those that continue to give us input on our products. It's because of you that we continue to lead in quality and product innovation!

Now available at our webstore! http://liposack.com/store.htm

CommonsenseRC.com... Balance lead extensions. Just about any type you could want. Very helpful in preventing putting strain on the balance leads.
The extensions won't put enough added resistance in the circuit to matter. If there's a problem you didn't get it plugged in right.

Those short leads are still going to be a problem even with the hole in the sack to aid in getting things connected. But I do like the idea of the hole.
