Default Got a question on lipo battery charger

Bought a cessna 182 from banana hobby and would like to use the balance charger on a different brand of battery other than what came with the plane.

Battery with plane===
Lipo 11.1 2400 mAh ( BlitZrc )

Extra batterys i wish to charge..

Turnigy 20-30C 3.3 3300 Mah ( believe these to be also 11.1 V )

The plug on the charger plugs in... in only one way...

Question is the wire colors are different on the batterys...........

On the "plug in" tabs up on the battery charge plug with the plane (BlitZrc ) starting on the left wire colors ( RED...Yellow...Blue....Black )

On the "plug in" tabs on the charging plug on the spare (Turnigy batteries ) ......(Red..Blue...Yellow...Black )


The yellow and blue wires are reversed between the two brands of batteries ( is this a problem.....or will the charger still work with both brands ) ??

The charger is a (Balance charger.....0.3 A...to...1.0 A )


Thanks in advance

Yes it should be fine. The balance connector with the 4 wires are simply taps from each cell, the black wire is the negative (same as the main output black wire) and the red wire is positive (same as the main output red wire).The other 2 wires are taps between the 3 cells and are always arranged in the same order.
