    Sorry, I've searched, just want to be able to charge P2 batteries with my 3 heli chargers.

    I have 4 P2 batteries, would be nice to have the P2 battery connectors without having to make up my own.

    any links apprecitated!

    It's a comm cable for the battery's smart monitoring & control system.

    So all we have to do is solder a deans connector on the red & black cable and we're good to go without using the comm connector?

    I understand we have to use Pb mode on our chargers as the balancing takes place in the batteries circuit.

    The comm cable/pins, etc. are not utilized during charging.

    Question : When using the lipo charger do we set it at pb 4amps and what is the correct voltage setting ? Also the extra wire with the white end doesn't get used just disregard it ?

    Also any type of ends can be used besides deans ? I was going to unsolder the wires that come on the connector and solder on wires with 4mm bullet ends that will plug into my charger. I saw that on Facebook.

    Thanks

    You can use any end you want as long as it will carry the current.
