This is the Great Planes ElectriFly Equinox LiPo Balancer. For LiPo (Lithium Polymer) battery packs with 2 to 5 cells, assembled IN SERIES and wired for balancing. NOT Compatible with LiPo packs having a 2-pin Charge lead.
Regulates voltages of all cells in a Lithium Polymer pack to very tight tolerances during Charge and Discharge functions and provides a safe Charging and Discharging platform which is critical when handling LiPo batteries Eight status LEDs and pushbutton control Gold plated banana plugs on input for easy connection to Charger/Discharger Automatically checks for poor quality cells Maximum current handling capacity is 3A (current of up to 6A maximum is possible by using high-power adapters available separately, such as GPMM3163).
Unlike some Balancers, Equinox has two separate functions:
QUICK-BALANCE MODE: applies a small Discharge current to gently Balance voltages of all cells in a LiPo pack.
INTERFACE MODE: allows the Equinox to be used with a separate Charger or Discharger whereby it will monitor and control how each cell in the LiPo pack is Charged or Discharged. Balanced packs typically charge to the fullest possible safe voltage, meaning more power to the motor system. Also, these packs generally last longer as no individual cell becomes overcharged. Overcharging is one reason why LiPo packs fail.
