Since we can not find any cables for the h580 battery, I decided to make my cables.
It's simple with time and patience.

This is amazing, If only you would make 2 for me and send them I would be willing to pay for this much need piece of equipment, I unfortunately am not a clever man as to make these myself. Very well done sir

There are many sellers of small Deans connectors on Amazon. Look in electronics, hobby, connectors.

In Amazon, the ones I found are of normal size.

The name is driving me crazy, it's easy to search for T Deans plug in this case male. But the small ones, some call them mini, others call them micro and in several ads after looking at the specs they are the same size as the normal ones. Of the normal ones I have, two days ago I bought.

They are not very common and I'm looking at Amazon, Ebay and Aliexpress. In Banggood and Gearbest nothing.

I'm going to keep looking and when I find them I will put the link here so that no one happens as it's happening to me :mad:

P.D.: At the end in HobbyKing without problem (I don't usually look if it's not a big order but this time the best option without doubt)

Hello everyone,
Some additional explanations.
The first assembly was done directly on the battery which allowed me to make an impression and then a mounting base.
I used scart socket because there is a metal hoop that will serve as a molding frame.

Then cut the plugs to mount them on the plate (wax the plate for demolding).

Fit the frame and fix it with wax.

Use slow resin to mold well the plugs.

To mount the cables, follow the model.
Do not put the load lead + on wire (1) balance because the load would directly attack the first cell.

Like what, small hands can sometimes serve ....

With Claudius62's excellent explanation of how to put together a balance charging lead I decided to have a go at it for myself. Below are the images as progress was made.
To make the mould I covered the Dean holes on the battery with some masking tape and then pushed the Deans into place (this was of course after a lot of filing to get the plastic mould around the Deans to fit alongside each other). I then made the shape of the plug to hold the Deans in place with White tack (other tack such as blue is available lol), this then once the resin was set was easy to peel away.
Hope this adds to the original posts helpfulness.

Thanks again for such detailed explanation Claudius62

Good job mate :)

The battery inside the coffee cup :D like I made it myself.

All information is insufficient, the way in which we solve problems is unique. You learn by watching how others solve it :)

I would have insulated the connectors on the outside one by one with insulating tape. If by chance they touch each other... we have a real danger of barbecueing. LIPO batteries in that sense are very dangerous, please be careful.

I get your point but they couldn't touch each other as the plastic surround around the deans kept them well apart and they were very well tightly in, no space even for a Rizla paper hahahaha
