I have one of these batteries I’m running in my Losi 5ive B I just built

It has 2 identical battery connections and a balance plug

My question is.. is there a purpose for the 2 identical plugs or could I splice them together and change the end so that it will plug into the MTXL power harness? Is this a bad idea? Or would it be ok to do this

No I have the same battery the short one is for charging and the long one is for the reciever keep them in storage mode when your not going to use for more than a couple of days there's a lot of information on lipos try GoogleING it
Get yourself a digital lipo charger

Ok. Gotcha... I wasn’t sure on that... I do have the appropriate charger for it and follow the use and care instructions

With that said I could just change the plug for the receiver to match the harness for the MTXL and everything will be fine correct?

We’ll see for sure when it gets here today... but according to the pic on DDM’s website it has one of the big blue ones on the end that connects to the battery

:unsure:Why would you charge with the other plug when you have the lipo balance plug there with thicker gauge cable?

The 5ive T 1.5 came with a balace charger ( that i actually still use).

The other lipo charger i have ( Onyx 235) will not charge through the balance plug. The balance plug connects to a balance board that connects to the charger. Battery gets charged using the jr plug. It connects to a squid that connects to the charger.

My Onyx 235 is pretty old...but it still works...I don't have a need to replace the thing yet.
Some newer chargers might have the balance ports built into the charger...no need for the balance board then....but I don't know...I never looked into those.
I do prefer to use the small Dynamite charger though...less setup.
