I got the R246 LIFE batts, harnesses (for the car), and charging cord to charge. I also can charge them on my PN charger.

Anybody know how to hook up the batts to charger? Looks like on the 246 charging cord, 1 end you can hook up to 2 batts. The other end looks like the white plug will go into the 1 PN cord (Its the bigger plug with a curcuit board with female plug ends on it). The 246 cord also has a black plug on the same end. Not sure where that goes?

THANKS.

The white plug plugs into the balancing board, the thing with multiple connectors with differing pin counts.

The black part has to be connected to the banana plug outputs. You'll probably need to make an adapter if it wasn't included with the charger.

Don't forget to set the charger correctly, for example using Lipo settings on LiFe isn't really recommended...

If you're using the pn s6 charger,it comes with the correct adaptor to charge them. You need to go into user settings then lipo(3.7v per cell),and change to life(3.3v per cell). I charge mine at 0.8a too. :)

What Pn cords are you using? I know the one end (246 cord), goes to the 2 batts. The other end goes into the PN connector with the multiple ends on a curcuit looking board. Now theres a black connector left (246 cord)?

The black connector is the charge lead,look through your charger box and you will have one with the correct end on it to connect to the black plug.
