Spektrum Lipo prob
 
I have a Spektrum DX5 Pro Tx. The charger I use is the Dynamite P2 Passport which has worked perfectly. I have the correct charging wire from Spektrum, There is no balance plug on the battery. Just the connector that goes to the tx. I set the charger mode to Lipo CHARGE not balance. The charger won’t charge. It says balance wire not connected. What the hell am I doing wrong??

My first guess would be that somehow the charger has been set to "Balance Charge" and it's faulting out due to not seeing the balance lead connected.

Edited to add, I was thinking there may be a "sub Menu" that's got it looking for the balance lead...

Thank you. I’ll see if I can find it in the menu

As far as I can see, the Dynamite Passport P2 AC/DC Multi-Charger does not have a non-balancer change mode.
But, you can wire a "cheater" cable to connect to the LiIon (Lithium Ion - not LiPo) pack's 2-wire main discharge lead to the charger's main and balancer port.
What you want is something like this: OMP M1 Battery Charging Lead 2S XH Battery Charging Adapter OSHM1059 - Buddy RC
This one has the wrong connectors on it, but it is wired the way you need to charge your 2S LiIon pack with your Dynamite Passport P2 AC/DC Multi-Charger.
You can make up your own if BuddyRC doesn't have the right one.
