You can buy the female connectors at just about any hobby store, use the alligator clips on the charger to clip onto the wires for the female connector. Charge at about 1 amp and you'll be fine.

If you dont have a charger that can do that, just buy a reciever pack charger and charge overnight.

This is what you need for all nitro racing/flying etc. It charges your nimh reciever packs, your nicd glow driver and your nimh/nicd transmitter all at the same time. It does all of these things very well also. I rigged up a cord to fit my cars' cigarette lighter. I charge up all my stuff on the way to the track. I dont have any tracks close to my house But for the money you cant go wrong.
