    Hi

    Does anyone know if someone is selling an adapter for the phantom 2 batteries that makes it possible to charge, discharge and balance it on at regular lipo charger? It's a hassle when I'm not able to discharge those batteries without using the Phanthom 2 itself.

    Best reg.

    The phantom 2 battery has all the charging and balancing circuitry built in. You can substitute a Pb battery charger for the 12 volt supply. As for discharging, switch the battery on as you do to power up the phantom and connect it to a load.

    I use my IMAX B6AC as a load.

    Then I just ended up getting a paralell board on eBay so I can charge 3 battery's with the stock charger.
    Then said screw it and got another dji charger.

    I bought a phantom 2 battery connector for about $8.00 and put a plug on the end to plug into the charger cable. The plugs on the IMAX are Deans - available from hobbyking. I use a combination of Deans and XT60 connectors and have adaptors to go from one to the other. I think I found the Phantom 2 connector on eBay.
