The secret of the LiPo battery configuration is how you tie together the balance tabs. Sorry, can’t tell you more than that… I’m on an NDA with one RC, but suffice to say I’m looking into the various methods to make connections and adaptations to the basic configuration. The Turnigy packs have what’s called a JST-XH connector, and it seems the easy way to set them up would be to fabricate some sort of pigtail with this going to a PC board/connector dealy. In my searches, I found this site, which tells you just about everything you’d ever want to know about the balance connectors on those crazy LiPo packs.
Just one more example of the RC/battlebot guys figuring out a lot of stuff we’re just starting to find out about- from TJin Tech’s “All about lipo balance connectors”, well, all about lipo balance connectors.
