Default soldering balance harness

Hello. I wan't to make one like this:

https://www.amainhobbies.com/protek-...k-5319/p244687

But i'm not shure which cable goes to what since i will use this for my 2S turnigy 4000 mah lipo.so that i can balance charge it. Could someone make a soldering/diagram that shows exactly how to connect all these wires the proper way?

Thew balance plug is actually simple ...

The two outer pins are the TOTAL voltage. Each pair as you move along give you the individual cell voltages.

I know this is a diagram I drew up for a 3S many moons ago ... but it shows how it works ...



The main thing is to make you have correct polarity ...

So if i remove one of the blue bars on your diagram it will be a 2 cell lipo, right?
Nice graphics though Still a little scary for me to do it right

Well, thank you very much. You are a live saver

I feel more secure now on my project and will solder one
as soon my 2S extension cable arrives.

Take care ... the leads on LiPo's are usually electronically welded to the cell tabs ... its sometimes hard to get solder to take on this. Make sure you put tape separating just in case one lead lets go - to prevent shorts.

'Multiple choice' cell, battery and balancer wiring diagrams, plus explanations:
home.kpn.nl/ronvans/scriptasylum
RC calculations
→ Electrical
→ LiPo pack wiring
→ Balancer wiring
(Excellent site for e-folk, lots of goodies, tools, info. Have a look at other menu items. Add to favourites?)

Brian G. pulled the plug on his ScriptAsylum site, I copied it.
