the middle one is for balancing. the outside 2 will be labelled either inside the camera or on the battery itself. i hope you're using a li-ion/li-po charger!

use a dvm to check for a voltage, hopefully you'll see +3V if it's a 1 cell, +6V for 2 cell and +9v if it's a 3 cell lithium ion.

Depending on the capacity of the battery you'll want to keep the charge rate on the low side. This is a rechargeable type of cell right?
