- These cables make parallel balance charging a breeze. I prefer these cables over the "paraboard" approach - they make hooking up all your packs easier... especially if your packs have short balance tap wires (as many of mine do). Don't forget the 6x parallel main leads cable, and read up on parallel charging on RCGroups - search for "About parallel charging of Lixx / PB packs."
I use the 2S cable to charge three 5000 mAh 2S LiPo's at once and I love it. I ordered the 3S one so I'm ready to upgrade or charge my friend's 3S batteries as well. One connector came off my 2S cable while disconnecting from one of my batteries after charging, but I think it was a fluke and I'm confident ProgressiveRC will take care of it.
I just wish they made a Parallel Board with Traxxas connectors. Still, I may buy the Universal Parallel Board with JST-XH connectors and solder on the female TRX connectors.
ProgressiveRC makes great stuff!
