This is a list of Manufacturers and the Balance Taps they use.

What balancee tap is on the Losi packs?
I have a friend that bought a Losi 2s reciever pack and wants to use his MaxAmps Method balancer.

no idea? its tiny.
i found an common sence rc adapter that plugged into it and i used the 3s spot on my hyperion jst xh adapter and it finally worked. what a pain lol

There is no current match for the Losi taps. It's their own goofy design made so that you have to buy their chargers. But a little trick is that the 3S tap and the 5S losi taps are the same at the 3S and 5S TP taps. As for the 2S 4S and 6S there are no direct matches.

hey i got it to work. i used a common sence rc adapter into the 3s port on hyperions jst hx adapter and its working. picked up 2s and is reading correct voltage. go figure.

Which column, if any, would the blinky fall under?
Is there a list of names/titles that use similar wiring?

The Blinky pin spacing is the exact same as the Hyperion plug. You just have to move the lone black wire in the balance tap next to the others.

Just to be sure...
My current packs are MaxAmps 2S1P 4000 with a blinky tap. It seems to work OK as I have no issues yet. From what I understand, charging through the balance taps is safer by regulating voltage and actually prevents individual cells from overcharging. (please confirm).
So if I want to charge this way, with these packs, all I need to do is move the black wire to match the Hyperion tab style. Which tap location would be used for the black wire to make the conversion from Blinky to Hyperion?
This charger will work, correct? Hyperion EOS0606i DC Balance Charger
Do the small balance tap wires support 4A charge rate (1C). If I buy larger packs, can I charge up to the full 6A through the balance taps? It seems like a lot of current for the smaller wires.
Also, can I use the charger solely as a balancer if needed or does it need to be in charge/discharge mode?
Sorry for the ignorance. I have done some research but I want some definitive answers. You have been more than helpful . Hopefully this will answer all my questions and I can move ahead with the purchase.

Not many chargers charge through the balance taps leads any longer they simply cannot safely support higher charge currents. And no the 0606i doesn't support balancing only. The DUO an NET chargers do.
