Some chargers you have to plug in both the balance plug and the battery plug at the same time.

Sounds like you need an adapter. Is the plug red that goes in to the receiver?

You're gonna need an adapter with a female Futaba plug(male futaba is on the battery) on one end and what ever style plug you have on your charger on the other end.
