Fatshark HeadsetのLipoバッテリーはバランス充電でなくなった







  • どうやら最新ロットから変更があったらしく、新しいものはバランス充電の必要が無いらしい。今後は通常充電推奨とのこと
  • Internal balancerが中に入っているので、バランスコネクタを挿さないでも大丈夫
  • コネクタはファンの電源用としてのみ機能

This lithium polymer battery pack is equipped with an internal cell balancing circuit that allows the battery to be charged from standard RC battery chargers. Charge the battery by connecting the barrel connector via the supplied adapter cable and setting the charger for 7.4V, 1800mAh Li-Po, 1.8A (1C).
Some RC chargers require a balance lead connector to be connected to the charger, or else the charging attempt will result in an error. The balance lead on the battery is not a true balance lead and is only used for powering the optional fan faceplate. To charge this battery set your LiPo charger to Fast Charge mode, which usually disables the balance lead requirement (set at 7.4V – 2cell - maximum 1.8A).
On some LiPo chargers none of the above procedures will work. In that case you can set the RC charger to NiMH mode and set max charge rate to 1.8A (1C)
Note (1): In NiMH mode the charger may fail to announce completing the charge. You should be able to estimate your battery charge amount by either timing (a fully depleted battery will charge in 1 hour at 1C) or monitoring the mA charge rate on the RC charger display (will drop to almost zero as it becomes full). Remember, you can always remove the battery from the charger and depress the battery level indicator button to check the charge level.
Note (2): If battery becomes fully discharged or shorted, an internal safety circuit will trip. To reset the battery, tap 9V direct to the barrel connector via the discharge adapter cable’s banana connector. This will instantly reset the battery and it can be recharged as normal.
