Jim, I'm not up on what's been available as far as chargers up to this point, so no clue as to the capabilities of them or the one you have. I can tell you the one I have doesn't need any accessories to balance charge accurately, and the display will keep you abreast of what's going on both while charging and afterward.
The thought is, before going out and buying any accessories for your's to do this, you might want to have a look at this one?
FYI - There's 2 versions of this same charger, this is the aluminum body one. The other one is plastic.
The white balancing port on the side of it has a 3 pin male output for balancing a 2 cell (6.6v) battery. I used a long Futaba servo extension to plug that in to. The other end of the extension will plug in to my HD switch's charge port, which is connected to a Futaba connection soldered to the batteries. Red and black go where you would imagine they might, white is used as the balance wire, is soldered to the jumper between cell one and cell 2. This all makes for a less cluttered setup?
Taken a step further, my setup uses 2 Futaba leads coming from a single battery (plenty of power IMHO), white wire set up as balance lead. They lead to 2 HD switches w/charge ports. The white wires on the receiver side of the switches MUST BE CUT to eliminate the potential for 3.3v to tangle with the signal wire on the receiver buss! This leaves you with the ability to balance charge without reaching inside the plane for anything. You simply plug in the leads from the charger to the charge ports.
Yes, and thanks for the thought regarding the band aids....
