Default Help with 1st Purchase

first shopping list:

Just paid for this charger HOTA D6 Dual/Pro Smart Charger AC200W DC650W 15A

will I still need this 3 In 1 2S-6S Discharger Voltage Tester Balancer?

Got some of these XT60/T Male Plug To T/XT60 Female Plug ordered as I know I will need them. This is coming in as well 1S-6S Battery Voltage Meter Checker Low Voltage Tester

thanks for your help

As far as I can tell you don't need anything more to charge/balance charge your LIPos or charge almost any other type of battery come to that! You set the type and number of cell in the battery, the charge or discharge operation, the Amps to use and it does the rest. It gives you a constant readout of the individual cell voltages as it charges. It will automatically stop charging when the LiPO is full. It has many safety features to protect both itself and the LiPos

The 1-6 cell battery voltage meter checker you have on order is really only required at the field so you can check the state of your batteries.

I am a bit puzzled as to why you need male to female adaptor things. More likely you need male XT60 plugs to solder onto the wires on the Electronic Speed Controller unless of course it comes with an XT60 already fitted.

Thanks for getting back. So I won't need the 3 in 1 2-6S charger discharger as the HOTA D6 will take care of everything. Perfect

The reason why the XT60/T adapter is I was given a new LIPo battery that has a "T" connector and the HOTA D6 only comes with the XT60, matching old with new.
