Ok, I have read about this in a few different threads, and the FAQ. I have seen the diagrams and already charge the 2s packs as a 4s so I'm all set with the wiring.
Out of the info I've came across, I think that some ECSs can handle 4s on one plug with the other "shorted" and some ESCs can't. I think some have even not lasted on 3s.
So here's my reason for this post. I have a 4s cut-off and have encountered the situation where one lipo get down to around .5 volts per cell lower than the other. I don't want to buy a 2s for the side that gets lower, so can I assume that wiring all four on one ESC plug and "shorting the other would create a situation where all four cells would share all the load equally? I can't see why not.
Also, can anyone clarify if the EVX2 will handle the 4s on one side. I see lots of pictures depicting it, but most of the discussion is about it failing the esc.
I read the thread about 5s on the EVX2 and DeWalt motor and it seams to be do-able. Just looking for something a little more definitive about this before I hook things up.
