Hi,

I have this charger https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0831G245T/ref=cm_sw_r_wa_apa_i_c.BLEbJHPJEKK

It only comes with cables to charge thru XT60

And this battery https://www.hobbyrc.co.uk/gnb-850mah-3s-80c-lipo-battery-xt30


Can I change the charging cable from XT60 to XT30? Is it safe?

Thanks!
whatever plug you use commonly on your batteries whether it is the XT60/XT30
remove unwanted plug from your charging leads and solder on new plug that suits your batteries

When you make the change DO NOT cut both battery wires at the same time I did that once with out thinking and trashed a good pair of side cutters ( that was exciting ).. Now I work with one lead at a time, cut one solder then cut the other and solder.

Ya, I made that mistake once when replacing the deans on my battery, but fortunately, it was really brief and everything was ok. Gave me a good scare though:)
