    If I'm not mistaken, the ID plug is compatible with the older traxxas plug. I know the ID plug on my e-revo works with standard traxxas plugs and that the standard traxxas plug on my packs fit the ez-peak plus dual with the ID receptacle on it.

    To plug the ID type plug into your charger, they make an adapter that changes it over to the older traxxas plug with a balancing plug if needed.

    Battery Traxxas ID connectors are compatible with the non ID plug on older models.

    Charging of NiMH with ID connectors on a charger with non ID connector also is not a problem and does not require the adapter which is specifically meant for charging ID LiPo batteries on non ID chargers since ID LiPo batts do not have a regular balance plug

    Sorry, I forgot to mention that only the lipo's need the adapter to charge.
