I have been following the charging DIY thread and am able to do a bit of soldering, modelling and 3D printing myself. I rigged this up today and it fits perfect. Took a 4S plug from an old battery... that's why the balance lead is so short. The deans fit nice and snug. I used 1mm bullet connectors for the pins. Wish me luck! I'm about to test on my ONLY H battery. :/

Looks good, you should be fine. You'll get a fail or error if something like a solder spot fails. If you do decide to share the print file I would be interested.

Yea like the others said looks good, try it out if you still worried just make sure you do it outside on the back patio on a cinder block ;) J/K. Hey it's only a battery, oh wait these suckers are like gold hard to get.

It works! But not perfect. I used 1mm bullet connectors but I found out I really need the spring loaded pogo pins in order to
keep constant contact with the batterys balance terminals.

Anyone know where to get them?

THANKS

I know they were hard to find but they sell them on Amazon and also Venom will have a version in the next couple of weeks

Yea it was brutal but I got the model number from another thread. Fedex was the only option so in the end it cost over $20 CA for 10 pins.
I dont mind paying for the love of modding though.

Hey,

I am unsure of how to add or share a file here so I posted my file on Thingaverse.
Let me know if there are any problems. It should be OK but I have been having some SCALE problems lately
with exporting my models. CHEERS
