So, could I use the Celectra variable rate, 1S charger that comes with the mCPx for three batteries at once, or at least two? The max is charge rate is 0.7A and I have some 200mAh, 250 mAh, and 300 mAh. I found a JST to ultra micro adapter cable that will allow me to connect this cable to the Celectra charger. Thanks.
Just ensure that the batteries are all at around the same discharge rate when you start. A normal discharged/storage state would be 3.8V for each 1S battery. The charge rate determines how quickly you'll charge the batteries. Plugging in all three of those batteries at 700mAh would not harm anything... you could even do all three at 300mAh and they would just charge more slowly. It's worth noting that current 1S batteries can easily handle 2C charge rates. (Brand name stock 150mAh batteries come with a 300mAh charger). You could safely charge all three of these batteries at 1.5A and save even more time.
Unfortunately not, for 2 reasons. First, this is the wrong connector for the mSRX (at both ends). Second, you would need a different style charger to do multiple batteries via a single cable. If one battery charges at 300mA, then two batteries would need 600mA, and six batteries need 1.8A from the charger using one cable. You need a charger that allows you to control the charge rates in order to use any cables like this (not the base charger that came with your micro heli). Note that I highly recommend a good charger since it also lets you discharge batteries to Storage Mode (extending overall battery life). Keeping any lipo fully charged for extended periods will have a negative impact.
It's also worth noting that you can mix different capacities. They must all be 1S, but you can mix 200mAh and 300mAh without issues. At 1C you would set the charge rate to 500mA (0.5A) and both would charge to full capacity. Also note that parallel charging requires all batteries to be in the same ballpark when you start charging them together. Don't have one at 3.8V and another at 4.0V when it starts.
For that setup, you will need this (2 Pin JST to 6 x E-Flight Ultra Micro plug Charging Harness) and either of one of these (4mm Banana plug to 6 x Female JST Connectors in parallel or the 4MM Banana Plug / Charge Plug (solder type) (2 pair/bag)). You will need a bit of soldering skill if you choose the banana plug only.
I think I know what your asking for! You could always try this battery http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem .asp?idproduct=19204&aff=406233
Unless you already have a lot of the E-Flight batteries already :P
I am building a 2 channel, Nano Glider, (DLG).
I want to use this Battery for the power supply.
Where can I get a socket to plug the battery into? Do Hobby King have them, if so can you give me a part number?
I am looking for a charging cable that has a female JST XH on both ends as I want to charge the battery in small Heli. They all have male JST XH plug amd I want to charge with my Imax B6 lipo charger which also has male end. What are my options? Thanks
I have this cable and it has the same ends(male) on it that are on my small Heli and therefore doesn't work. I need a cable with 2 female ends on it.(same ends that are on 1 cell turnigy nanotech) I can't even find a cable with 1 female end else I would buy 2 and solder together to make what I need. Thanks
yes you should as Accucel6 only comes with the following connectors, only came with: Charge Cable w/ Male XT60 <-> 4mm Banana plug XT60 Female cable with /- clips Power cord with /- clips you should buy others if you need, I hope this helps
I am new to this :) i purchased Turnigy Accucell 6, 2 Pin JST to 6 x E-Flight Ultra Micro, and four TURNIGY nano-techs 600mah 1s 35-70c lipo. If i modify the XT60 male cord that came with charger to the 6 E-flight micro ends, Can i charge all batteries at once with this cord. my batteries are not here yet. so no reference to go on. Thank You all very much. i been reading the threads to get this far and do believe i got the wrong cord to charge batteries.
no you got the right one as the Accucel charger comes with a red JST connector on one end and xt60 on the other which can be used to plugin with this charging cable to charge all your single cell lipos at once. I hope this helps.
To check polarity you need to open the tx to see which wire is connecting the positive marked connection pole inside the Tx. Normaly it's a red or brown color wire. Once you know this it will be easy connecting it.
The E-flight UMX series uses a 2 cell Battery, the UM series uses 1 cell, they are not the same. I believe there is a charging harness for them as well but honestly I wouldn't use it. Horizon has a 4 bank charger for those batteries and you could pick one up from Ebay pretty cheap, I have one and charge my Turnigy and Nano Tech UM batteries with it.
PICMX6 this is the product ID number for the harness that connects to the 1 cell 1S battery that the Eflight and Parkzone Ultra Micro's (UM) batteries use. You will need to charge all the same MAH batteries at the same time. If they are not, you risk a fire hazard.
Since all batteries are connected to eachother by the cable, they will be balanced becouse charge from a more charged battery will go over the Cable to less charged battery. You should only connect batteries that has a similar battery charge from the beginning...
All Lipo's are parallel: It's sound like 1S6P. All cells will be have the same voltage (a cell with a higher Voltage will charge the Cell with a lower one). I've make a switchable adapter, so that I have a XS1P combination. In this combination the charger can balance all cells *).
The risk is, if all cells are parallel, that you have e.g. a cell with is nearly deep unloaded, the next one is nearly full, so in depend of the internal resistor of the cells, a high Power (A) is floating from one to
I use one of these for charging my mcpx batteries. No need to balance because they are 1S. You only have to multiply your charge rate by the number of batteries connected, e.g. 1.2 Amps to charge 6 x 200 mAh batteries at a time. You can charge 1 to 6 batteries at the same time. Just beware of charging only same capacity batteries.
Be aware that you connect all cells in parallel with this cable - so check each cells voltage before you plug them together! Otherwise you will get high current between the cells until all are levelled again... Knowing this its a good and cheap solution to charge multiple 1s cells at the next indoor meeting *-)
If the connector from the charger is the same it will work, if it isn't you will have to replace the connector on the harness and then it will work. Also, you have to make sure the size of the battery connector is the same, I ordered it, but it turned out that the size on the battery connector on my Turnigy Nano 1s 200mah is smaller.
For it to work you need Blade Part number BLH3126, JST-RCY to Ultra Micro Battery Adapter Lead or a similar adapter. This lead is included with the purchase of any version of the Blade mQX and Blade 120SR. It is not included with the mCPx.
With the proper adapter, it works great.
If you plan on doing this, make sure to set the charging current at a higher rate. For example, if you are charging two 200mAH batteries, put the charging current at 0.4 (400mA). If you are charging 3, put the charging current at 0.6 (600mA). If would be best, thought, to buy a intelligent battery charger, like a IMAX B6 AC which is a much better charger and will also let you charge all other types of lipo batteries.
Yes, all you have to do is solder the red wire to the white on the adapter cord and the black to the black. Then you can still unplug the para charging cable. This is actually what I do and its absolutely great! Much less hassle.
Yes, as raptor s a id, just plug it into a regular JST charge Lead and select 1S LiPo on y our LiPo Charger. Works fine for me with my 300mAh 1S NAno-tech LiPos for my small Blade Heli i use them in. If you like this Info please let me get rewarded... thank you if you do.
well you will need to have a Charger Wire going from your Charger to this Wireloom with the opposite of the JST Plug as on this Wiringloom. If you dont have 1 you can always change the JST (the red Plug) to another that you have a Charger-Lead-Wire of, like XT60, MPX or whatever available. Or cut the red JST off and put the required Banana Plugs on to plug directly into your charger
Hello, Only read about using this item on 1 cell's. I want to use it on the Nano-Tech 120 mAh 2s (4 of them at the same time). Anyone knows if this works? Sinds I'm here* Normally I have a balancer plug AND a other plug on a lipo. The Nano-Tech 120 mAh 2s has only the E-flite Ultra Micro plug! How do I connect the lipo to my Turnigy Plush 6A /.8bec/6g Speed Controller??
This wont work on a 2S LiPo a s it is made for the 1S LiPos. However if your 2S ha s the same Plg you can use this Wire cut 1 of its Plugs with a few Inches of wire of and use it to connect your ESC to it. If you like this INfo please let me get rewarded. Thankyou
Ones again someone gets rewarded for FALSE Information... geeeeee.... how you gonna hook up your Balancerplug thats NONE Existing on your Charger to charge as a 2S ??? And if it is in Paralelle it is still 1S, if you connect them in serielle then it would be 2S
Hello Does anyboy know where to buy the connector that will fit to the one in picture above ( E-Flight Ultra Micro male), so I am looking for the connector like it is on 300 mAh nano Lipo battery (so Iam looking for female)
you mean the white ones? those are already female. You can find extensions for those here: www.link
The red one is a standard jst male connector, female connectors can be found here: www.link or here: www.link
Only way to use this is a 1S, no balncing, as you dont really have a balancing Plug, just like on any other 1S LiPO they get just hoked up directly to the charger, s ince there is only 1S (Cell) there is nothing it can be balanced to (equaled out to). This is a great HArness, personally use it on my B6 Charger with Turnigy 3000mAh for my MCP X i just got not to long ago. You like my INfo ? if so please let me get rewarded. Thank you
The charger will see it as one big battery at 1800mah so you should charge it as 1s 1800mah (in case you are using 6 batteries). You should adjust your amperage accordingly when using less than 6. Also another very important thing would be to have all batteries at a same level of charge before charging. Don't try to charge a charged and a discharged battery together, otherwise the discharged one will drain the charged one damaging it. Additionally you should use a fireproof bag in order to avoid
Just remember that for every battery you take off of there, you need to subtract 300 mah.. or 0.3 amp from your charge rate. Typically, I just charge at 1.5 amp anyways since these 1S batteries dont take much
It depends whether it's parallel or seriell. If it's parallel you'd need a balancing adapter (10 min of soldering or so) and you can charge 36 1s packs at once :-) (even with a 50W charger you get a 1C charge rate).
you dont need to balance these cells as they are not being discharged simultaneously in series. The moment you plug them in to your charger, all cells equalize and act as one big 1 cell pack* effectively self balancing.. just don't mix dead batteries with half charged ones or the surge from one to the other will fry your face off.. or just damage the cell
When connecting several of these discharged little single cell batteries to the 6x charging harness they will balance with each other cause they have different voltages, even when the harness is not connected to the charger. Remember a car with dead battery being connected to a second car with good battery and engine running. The moment you connect the fourth clamp there is a big spark. The moment the batteries (who have a big difference in voltage) are being connected a huge current will flow f
Yeahhh...meiner ist allerdings aktuell in Reklamation, hat kurz verbrannt gerochen und dann ist der eine Servo immer auf Vollausschlag gefahren. Der m CPx ist echt richtig geil, nen anderen Heli braucht man echt nicht :-)
Ich habe meinen erst seit 2 Tagen und brauche ne neue Blattlagerwelle. Die Blattgriffe haben bei mir etwas Spiel (welches glaube ich normal ist) da wollte ich die schraube fester anziehen und sie ist mir abgebrochen www.link den zum üben nutzen, habe noch den HK250er hier
Since your only charging, it doesn't really matter if they are high current rated. Say your charging 6 x 300mAh battery at 2C, the total current would be 3.6 amps. It should be able to handle that I would guess?
Ah ok. My first impression when looking at the picture was that they are too small to fit the MCPX connector, but it is hard to tell from the picture, and they do say it fits, so for $1.37 i am willing to try it.

Nice adapter, all batteries charge/discharge to the same voltage, but must be the same capacity when charging multiple batteries at a time. Saves time over charging one at a time with the E-flite/Parkzone chargers.

Not a review, but i noticed the pictures show 5 connectors instead of 6 as mentioned in the description.
Purchased them anyway.

No, there are 6 connectors on this thing. It is just a bad picture of it. Three of the connectors are all bunched together.
This thing makes charging multiple batteries so much easier and faster. And you can certainly not beat the price!
Good for charge the Mcpx lipo but a little fragile

One connector soldered with reverse polarity!! Be very careful with the polarity. I bought quite a few of these and just shy of 10pcnt had one connector soldered with reverse polarity. That sort of oversight on QC is unacceptable. I really like Hobbyking but that error should not happen.
