losi lipo headache!!!
so, as per usual, ive exhausted my eyeballs researching before posting this, and ive just managed to confuse my self further, so here goes

i bought two losi lipo packs from my lhs recently, cause they were on sale, and i needed them anyways. lol
i brought them home and low and behold the balance plug obviously is different than any of my other lipo batts.

from what ive read my charger and the rest of my battereies are using a JST XH or HX or something like that, and the one on the losi batt is smaller.

heres where it gets real confusing, alot of what i read says the the losi balance plug has 4 pins for 2s, but mine clearly have only three.... so my question is, what the heck do i need to do to be able to balance these packs?>

thanks for any and all advice

these packs were bought for my 25in mono, if i need to i can post over in electric car/truck type forums.

thanks again

My info shows Losi using XH plugs. This thread may help identify. http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_91...tm.htm#9108084

RE: losi lipo headache!!!
the packs have a latch, and are smaller than the standard size ports on my ballancer, what i understsand to be "hypperion style"

i got disgusted with it and called my lhs today. theyere ordering some adapters... i was hoping i could avoid doing that, scince the shop really isnt local. about a 45 mile drive to the nearest decent hobby shop.

any who, i suppose i couldve saved everyone some time and done that in the first place...

so on to another question. would it hurt the packs to silicone the seam in the hard case? in an attempt to water proof them, or am i wasting my time? is water more harmful to lipos than it is to nimh?

sorry, batteries are not my forte,
