Weird Lipo?

Isn't it unusual to have a 2S 7.4 LiPo without a balance charger connector? This is the battery out of a toy grade Mebo robot someone gave me. Just has pos/neg to a proprietary connector. I don't have the charger.

  • I used to see a lot of them, around 10 years ago when RC started going electric.

    There's probably a simple enough way to balance them internally.

  • You're brave! I'm too chicken to open one up.
  • Yep, see that all the time. We have several products we build at work with 2 wire LiPos. Open them up, and you will find a charge controller and overcurrent/overtemp protection device.

    Livin' on the edge. That's how I roll!

    Does this mean you're not planning to attend my marshmallow, hot dog & Lipo roasts this summer? I love fireworks!

    Speaking of which, our local city fireworks show had a halftime spectacular and a finale, both about the same. I presume it wasn't an accident. :)
