Default Please help identify this balance connector

I am attempting to convert this battery over to charge on my Hyperion EOS6060i and need to identify the balance plug used on this pack so I can get an adapter (to either Hyperion or JST) or find the balancer plate to use with the charger. (The balance is the white plug, of course).


Thanks in advance.

Correct, the two balance boards I have (labeled Hyperion and JST) do not fit this balance plug.

That is good info, but none of those balance connections seem to fit what this is. The pin spacing is 1mm and the entire plug is 7mm wide with 3 pins.

Could this be it? It looks really close:

Pretty sure that Losi batts come with a xh balance connector. It should fit the board closest to the battery. Try orienting the connector 180 degrees in both directions...it should fit. Also make sure you are putting it into the 2 cell slot.

No sir, it's really obvious when you put the plug next to the 2 cell slot that it's not going to fit. The pin spacing on the XH adapter is quite a bit higher than this adapter. As I stated before, the pins on this plug are spaced at 1mm with the entire plug being 7mm wide.

EDIT: Nevermind on the FMA, even the 2s taps are 5-pin.

Here is a closer picture comparing the plug to the XH board 2 cell slot.

Is FMA the only one with 1mm pin spacing? TP is 2.0 and all others are 2.5 mm. Losi (according to my list) is XH , but your losi pack doesn't look familiar.

I think I've about given up on finding the balance adapter. I'll just charge it at a little less than 1c and see how long it lasts. Not like liposuction are super expensive these days. Hell I think I could get a new battery for less than what the balancing tap will cost me.
