For the time beeing I´m not so wealthy(splled correctly?). Otherwise this could be a good idea perhaps in, the future.
I run a 12S 8P LiPo battery pack (44.4v 40Ah) setup too on my Mongoose Blackcomb.
You can consider doing a 1-plug charging setup, charging all 12 cells in series using a Hyperion 1420i charger/balancer like I did here... http://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewto ... on#p493233
The Hyperion 1420i charger/balancer costs more (of course) but it can charge up to 14s packs so no need to reconfig your battery leads to parallel every time youcharge / then reconfig back to series to discharge.
HI sacman, thanks for the respons, But, my tech skills are very poor, I need something more simple, I can see that it is very simple when done, But its the part on your link where I need to change som wires/plus that concerns me... but thanks.

The 200W charger will work fine. Undo the series connection and charge the 2 bricks in parallel. Get a parallel charge cable, and a 6s parallel balance cable to do that, or a parallel charge board. The 200W charger should charge both those in ~2 hours from empty.
wesnewell, I liked your idea because it sounded very simple. But I´m not sure I get it. I have two bricks, lets call them no. 1 and 2, are you saying that I should take the black wire from no1 of them and put it in to no.2 red wire? what about the red on the no.1, should it just be placed nowhere, and only be in use when charging?
I think i have the charging part under control, but which plugs do zippy lipo´s use, EC5/EC3 or XT60?
YES, I´m very noooby, so I appreciate your help, please tell me like i`m a six year old
would love it if hobbyking has some of the plugs that your talking about so i dont need to solder..
and an extra question, which plus does the infineon 12 use? I guess its eaier to change it to whatever I use at the end of my lipo pack?
Thanks for your input! Mike.
