You could look at Maxamps.com or Flightpowerusa.com There is some good info on LiPo's and balancers that might help you.
You may find your plugs there as well.
Hope that helps you

Hi, I do have Lipo charger which is Ripmax Prodigy 2 and it dont have balancer. As I know all the Lipo battery do have 2 tick cable where is "+" and "-" on dean plug and 3 thin cable on another set of connector. If I charge 4amp on 4000mAh Lipo with this charger I only connect on the dean plug and this method consider not balance, am I right?

My question is, anyone here can recommand me which external Lipo balancer suite for my battery capacity. Looking 2-3 cells Lipo balancer. Any do it need work together with my current charger? Or work saparately. Thanks.

You are correct, at present you are not balance charging. Lots of experienced people will tell you that you do not have to balance charge.

If you really want an external balancer I found this site:
http://www.gravesrc.com/category_s/586.htm

by just Googling 'external LIPO balancer'.

I cannot recommend them as I have never used them but they seem to sell what you want.
I would also ask your local hobby shop.
