Default Nooby question, motor cooling

Hey I'm looking at buying a Yeah Racing Tornado fan for my Sakuras motor. It comes with a JST power plug. Not been that savvy with electrics can this be connected directly to the Lipo batteries JST-XH charge plug? Or do I need to remove the plug and attach a JR plug to connect it with the receiver?

You can solder the fan directly to the battery terminals on your speedo

Get the superior hobbies f5 fan and solder it directly to the +/- on your esc.

Those fans don't like Lipo voltage, so you'll need to connect it to the receiver. The standard plug fits straight into a Sanwa or Futaba receiver, so you might not need to change it.

Operating voltage 5v But on the pic under it it says up to 8.4v (If those are the fans you have)

Thanks for the help, it won't fit my receiver, it uses conventional JST connectors and JR plus are to big.
