Avid 2S Charge lead cables

Avid have announced the release of their new 2S charge lead cables with XT60 to 4/5mm bullet connectors. Designed to be colour coordinated (e.g. red uses all red wires and sheath) for charging 2S battery packs through 12 gauge wire. Includes an XT60 plug on the charger end and gold-plated 4mm to 5mm bullets on the battery end to cover all battery types. Comes with the popular XH 3pin balance plug, which most trim one of the plastic alignment rails with an X-acto to plug right into the charger instead of the balance port. Or you can use the included XH 7pin if you don’t want to brave that. Balance leads are 2.5″ (63.5mm) longer than the charge leads so they can easily be plugged into any charger design.
