Go to the Trakpower or Flight power web sight and look at there balancer adapter for those packs.
I was able to look at there balacer plug and make my own adapter.
You will need a 2s balacer plug for your balancer, 2 banana plugs standard sized and 1 1.5mm or 2mm banana plug ( I don't remember the size) for the center tap.

later

A 2s lipo balancer will have only three wires. The middle wire will go to the middle plug on the pack, and the two outside wires should be labled or color coded to tell you which is pos and neg....which connect to the same on the pack. It should be very simple... as larmed1 said, all you need to do is use the correct size bullet connectors for your pack and put them on the balancer lead wires.

Thanks to both of you.
So basically what I need to do is pull out the middle wire and connect it to the socked leaving the other two wire hanging.
Is that correct?
Thanks again

I believe he means you connect those two wire to the positive and negative leads.
