Default how can this charger balance without any balancing connectors

I just got this from a friend in my club RC planes Jets , he says this doesn't need balance plugs so I have a copy of the manual for it can you tell me if its possible and safe to use as compared to my other balancing chargers with the little white balancing connectors on the side .

I would not trust any "LiPo" charger without the ability to balance individual cells in a LiPo battery pack. That 535 charger, I believe, was designed to connect to a separate Thunder Power "balancer" unit/board.

I believe your right . I have 3 other chargers and they all have white balancing connectors.

LOL! You guys must be really young !

This was how you charged LiPo packs 12 years ago . This charger would charge the pack and then you would connect an external balancer to balance the cells. Then Thunder Power came out with the 205/210 balancer units that connected to this charger so you could charge and balance at the same time. I still have my 535 and 210 units.
The Thunder Power 535 is a great little charger . If you can find a 205 or 210 balancer unit get it and use the charger. Otherwise use it with an external balancer after you charge the pack.
