Tech Notes
 
NOTES FROM OUR TECH DEPARTMENT
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.

FEATURES

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).
1-year limited warranty
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

INCLUDES

Great Planes ElectriFly Equinox LiPo Balancer with 2S and 3S battery
adapters for ElectriFly, Venom, and ESky LiPos which are wired for
Balancing
