A balance connector (or balance tap) is a special connector that allows the cells in a lipo battery to be charged or monitored individually. The balance connector is only intended for low current use such as charging; for flight the main discharge connector should be used.
There are a large variety of incompatible plugs used by different manufacturers; you can usually get adaptor boards for chargers to allow them to charge batteries with different balance connectors.
Some different types are:
- 'Cellpro' connector, used by FMA on their Revolution packs, and sometimes used by Kokam. 5 pin or 6 pin configuration.
- Used by Cellpro 6S charger.
- Polyquest/ Hyperion
