A little more info would help.

Is your issue that the pack plug won't fit the charger connection??
Is it a balancer port issue?

There are a few different balancer port connections, not all fit between packs & chargers.

A description/link to your charger would help.

Looks like its a Losi Micro plug, and it kinda looks like that battery doesnt have a separate balancing plug.

The battery you posted initially has an EC2 plug. The balancing plug on that one looks standard.

Even if you get a balancer for it, it is only a 10C rating, it is more designed as an RX pack, not to drive a rig. The 10C rating will NOT make you happy when you need some power out of the motors.
A decent MINIMUM would be a 25C pack & 30C - 40C+ would be better.

Try your LHS when the owner is there, maybe he can figure out what you need as a balance connection, or go to a local GTG with people from here (check the regional forums) and ask for help.
