    Battery connector adapter?

    My son and I have had a couple of VXL Stampede's for several years and I'm buying a two new 1/16 e revo's today. I see that they have a "new?" battery connector with integrated balance wire.

    I have a Venom charger already and of course it doesn't have this connector. And I have no idea if aftermarket batteries are available with this connector (I'm thinking SMC based on recommendations here).

    Do I replace the stock connector on the truck with something else? Buy an adapter? If so, where do I find it? Am I missing something?

    Thank you for your help!

    You should be able to find an adapter to charge the ID plug with the intergrated balance wires on your charger. Also, the batteries with ID plug will still work with the old style traxxas plug on an older ECS in the car.

    Will batteries with the old Traxxas plug work with the DI plug on the new ECS?

    Thank you.

    Yes, you just have to be careful when connecting.
