Hey guys.. I am adding a second lipo to my ch3r. I wanna put a cool battery monitor on there.. something like this.

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/stor ... oduct=9282

now the question is.. the battery I am using only has 3 connections on the balancing connector. Could I wire up some adapter so I could connect both batteries to one monitor? I dont want to have to put two monitors on the bot.
If it is possible to make the adapter, I am sure it would only show the complete voltage for one? or would it show for both?

OR
of course, is there a monitor someone knows about that can handle two batteries that is small enough to mount on a ch3r?

And Yes you can make a custom adaptor.

or use something like that

Witch is to charge 2x 3s lipo at the same time like charging a 6s lipo.

Hope it help
