Question Quad question about batteries and chargers from a new member

I have a question about the type of battery I have and the professional charger I just bought. I bought the skyrc imax B6AC V2 but my drone (Contixo F6) batteries have only the balance lead for using and charging. Is there a special connector I can buy so I can charge my batteries using this charger?

Any info will be greatly appreciated thanks

I would probably take a balance lead extension and splice the power leads to the outside wires of the balance plug. They are connected anyway if you plug a battery into a charger with both plugs.

The balance leads can handle 2-3 amps or more on a normal battery and maybe more on yours.

To be honest if its a 2 or 3S pack - I would pay about $10 incl. Shipping and buy a balance lead only charger such as the RTF boys often have.
They are usually at the 1 - 2A rate and designed for this job.
That means that charge is balanced as well. I actually have two of these and they are used a lot to charge up my Rx lipos ....

If you charge from the B6 via the two outer pins of the balance plug - then you are not balance charging. In fact there is no way the B6 will in this situation.
