I took a connector off an old servo and soldered it to my homemade 6v 2450mah humppacks wires and snapped it into place on the battery holder box top recharger port hole...traxxas makes one that has the plug connected direct to the on/off switch..........Im pretty sure the one you show will work too.......Good luck.......Peace

ok, i'll have to look into the traxxas one. the one i posted above is to hook up to the batteries to charge them. now i need one to hook up the battery pack to the 0n/off switch.

I use something like this - it replaces the switch and has a charging lead so you don't have to take the batt out of batt box anymore. You just turn switch off and its ready to charge.

I made my own charging adapter using a 6" servo extension and some bannan plugs.
