I've got a 2C 7.4V Turnigy 5000 LiPo battery along with an iMAX B6 balance charger. I've not used either before, or anything similar so before I charge my battery for the first time I'd like to ensure I do it correctly!
I've connected it all up as stated in the manual, balance lead connected, red>red, black>black etc.
Now this thread:http://rc-drift.com/rc-drift-forum/index.php?topic=8700.0
Has left me a little confused!
In the manual, (from my understanding) it states that if you want the battery to be balanced and charged at the same time, then set the correct settings for your charger (I've set 2.3A and 7.4V (2S)) which I assume is correct? Now should I:
a) Use this setting and start charging.
b) Use the actual charging setting on the charger (manual seems to suggest this doesn't balance at the same time)
c) Use the settings recommended in the previous thread mentioned (I'll have to fiddle about a bit more as that doesn't make sense to me just yet |o)
Thanks in advance for any help, I want to get it charged so I can go ahead and play with my car for the first time.
