    Hi,

    I'm trying to find a parallel charging board for the charger that came with my Phantom.

    Any of the XT60 boards that I can see online have a 7-pin balancing connector, whereas the largest balancing connector on the charger is 5-pin.

    eg

    Do I need some sort of adapter?

    Is parallel charging even possible with the default charger?

    Do yourself a favour and buy a proper charger. A Turnigy Accucel-6 or something. Then you can buy whatever balance board you want.

    So it isn't actually possible to use a board with the default charger?

    Nope.... I personally do not like the adaptor boards as the batteries can not be balance charged though the board. Buy yourself a battery charger that can charge 4 batteries at once. :)
