Default Looking for the right balancing lead

I have a BC-6 battery charger for my Lipos. I just bought a Zippy 5000 2s and I am trying to figure out which balancing lead I need. I do not have a balancing board so I looking for one that plugs directly into the charger like I have for my 3s batteries. This is what i found:

Is this correct?

The end for the 2S Zippy is correct (Zippys and HK/HC lipos in general use the JST-XH type (which is also called the Align style) balance conn. I'm not totally sure the charger end will plug into your BC-6. I'm guessing it would, but don't know for sure.

The other way is to get an adapter that plugs into the Zippy balance conn and converts it to the same style as your 3S lipos, but I don't know which those use. It =would be like one of these -

But using the type balance conn your 3S uses. This guy is a Bantam dealer and has adapter boards for the BC-6 too,
