NEED MORE HELP?

First, ask yourself a few questions and research the answers to these questions at www.revolectrix.com

1. What balancing connectors are installed on my LiPo battery packs? REVOLECTRIX currently supports the following major battery/connector brands as well as battery brands which utilize the same connector types listed below:

TP/PQ (ThunderPower/Polyquest) - Molex/Yeonho brand connectors
GP/KO (Great Plains/Kokam) - JST XH/JST EH/HR brand connectors
CP (Native Cellpro) - JST PA brand connectors

* For complete details, check the Adapter Compatibility Page

2. Do I want to charge one pack at a time or multiple packs in parallel? If you wish to charge one pack at a time, and/or you want to do balance-plug-only charging, then consider Combos 1 and 3 which include your choice of Standard Adapter. If you wish to charge 2 or more (same-cell-count packs) in parallel, then consider Combos 2 and 4 which include your choice of 2 Smart Parallel Adapters. If you want to charge greater than 2 packs in parallel at the same time, purchase one additional Safe Parallel Adapter per pack along with the combo, or choose the MPA Combo which will allow charging from 1 to 6, 2s-8s packs simultaneously. All packs connected to MPA must be the same cell count. Click here for full details on the MPA.

3. Do I want to access the FREE Charge Control Software (CCS) from my PC? This capability allows you to update firmware to the latest versions, as well as change numerous settings within the PowerLab, print and store graphs, drive the PowerLab from the PC. This requires a USB PC Interface (PN: FUIM3) which is included with Combos 1 and 2. The FUIM3 will work with any REVOLECTRIX products that support PC software.

4. Do I want to purchase 2 PowerLab Battery Workstations and utilize Expansion Channel Mode? If so, you may be interested in purchasing Expansion Channel Ready Combos and SAVE!

Notes:

*Every PowerLab 8 Battery Workstation ships with a standard, native Cellpro adapter and can charge one 2s - 8s REVOLECTRIX Cellpro brand battery pack at a time. Combos 1 and 3 therefore do not include an option for an additional, Standard, Cellpro brand adapter. PowerLab 6 does not include this simple adapter.

PL8 Combos 2 and 4 do include an option for a Safe Parallel version of the native Cellpro adapter which also supports 1 pack (per adapter) from 2s - 8s REVOLECTRIX Cellpro brand battery pack.

All other brand adapters support 1 pack each of 2s - 6s battery pack
