Default This Dean/Tamiya Adator Ok to charge batteries? Picture!

I very new to electric and there are so much to learn than I thought.
Anyway, I have a peak charger with the regular tamiya plug. But my batteries have deans plugs on them. So I soldered an adaptor with a dean plug on one end and a tamiya plug on the other. Does it look correct and ok to charge the batteries like that? Or do I have to ditch the tamiya plug on the charger and direct solder a dean plug on the charger?

You should just take the dean plug off the jumper and solder it to the lead off the charger. With the Tamiya your more likely to get a false peak.
The deans have a much better connection.

But I have other batteries with the regular tamiya plug for the EZ Start and Roto-Start that I need to charge also.

That will work fine as long as you make sure that the positive and negative polarities are correct from the charger thru the adapter to the battery.
