Default Adapters for JST SM 3 pin to XT60?

Hello to all.

Brand new to the hobby, I bought a Land Rover D90 MN99s (yes, I know that some may not consider it an hobby grade vehicle ).

It has this weird USB charger to charge a jst sm 3 pin battery...


I have an HOTA D6 PRO that has XT60 plugs and I can't find an adapter to charge this battery


What can I do to start using the HOTA D6 and not the USB charger?
This battery only has 1 cable with 3 wires and what I usually see is at least 2 cables, one other for balancing (I believe...)

Thanks in advance.

Pedro, Portugal.

Im pretty sure you are going to be wiring up your own adapter in this case. That doesn't seem to be a standard RC plug.

Edit.. Every picture i can find of the car you listed, show the battery with a balance plug. If that's a standard balance plug they make adapters to charge through that. Such as:

Something like this?

But such a cable is easy to make by your self. Get a balance extension cable and strip a small piece of the outside poles, solder a cgarger cable to it and tape it off.

Thank you guys for the inputs!
As a real newbie, I'm really don't know how to solder neither have the equipment to do it...

I'm guessing I'll have to get it along the way.

In fact, my battery is really like that one I pictured: only 1 cable with 3 wires... I've noticed that XT60 only has 2 wires, so... I really wouldn't know what to solder an to what...

It would wire up like this:





You plug the XT to your changer and the Balance plug to your charger / balance board. The other one goes to the balance plug on your RC.
