Default Triton EQ and LOSI 14.8V lipo starter box, balancing plug question

Turns out both of those balancing plug adapter boards doesn't have the right plug for the Losi LOSB99821 I have. I called the charger manufacturer and they said to post up here and that they don't support that particular plug that losi puts on. Basically my connector has 5 pins, the 4S plugs on the adapter board has 6 pins. Has anyone used this charger w/ this battery? Anyone have any suggestions on what I can do? I am new to this stuff and got a curveball on the first pitch . I have a picture for reference.

There are 4 standard balancing plugs
JST-XH (the electrifly board u have) - this is the most common plug these days
TP - u have one as well
Hyperion/Polyquest
JST-EH - Kokam/Neu/Apogee

the battery connector looks like Hyperion plug except those two plastic tabs. I would try to cut those plastic tabs and put it into the electrifly board u have. if not just get JST-XH connector and rewire it. easy.

Do they make a standardized adapter plate for the plug that you think I have or am I better suited taking this battery back and getting something else? Or maybe just replace the plug? I also found this:
In Stock $4.99
This adapter will convert your existing
Poly RC, Polyquest or Hyperion 4S tap to
Align 4S tap to use balancers/chargers equipped with Align.

Will this work ok if I do in fact have the hyperion plug?

I got on the phone w/ LOSI finally. Turns out I have to use the thunder power adapter and just not use one of the pins. Would have been nice if there was some documentation on this somewhere.

I thaught i had the same problem. I have the trinity charger and it has the e flight plugs built into it, and I baught the losi starter box battery and I couldnt find a plug for it. After searching, low and behold Losi makes adapters for their batteries. You just have to make sure the polarity is correct. I had to dissaseble the balance plug and make it right for my charger. it was so easy. LOSB9651 and LOSB9652
