This unique design serves as both a charging and balancing cable for up to 6 of your 2S battery packs. Connect to your batteries with the JST-PH connectors, as used in the Blade 130 X, Beast UMX or Sbach 342 UMX, - or the Brushless mCPx. Connect to the charger's main output with 4mm banana plugs, and to the balance port with a standard 2S JST-XH balance connector. 4" of top-quality silicone wire gives you the flexibility you need to easily get everything connected.

How to Parallel Charge:

The balance connector is on the wrong side of the heat shrink. It should come out on the side with the banana plugs, not the battery connectors. It ends up needing to be bent around, because both the banana plugs and the balance connector need to plug into the charger, but they're on opposite ends.
It was a simple fix of cutting the heat shrink, and re-soldering the bananas to go the other direction. Much easier layout to hook up and actually charge the batteries now. No bending-twisting of the harness.
Build quality was good, shipping was fast. Design was not optimal. It cost me $8, a bit of heat shrink, and time, but if that design flaw was corrected I would recommend it. Otherwise, you might as well buy the connectors and build it yourself.
ProgressiveRC Comment: Thank you for the detailed feedback - we agree. We will look to revise the design of this product and update the product image at that time.
Great product once again from Progressive.
This is fantastic to charge the micro batteries in parallel.
