Lipo Battery 7.4Vdc 1300Mah To Ez-B V4

I purchased the EZ-B v4 Developer Kit a few months ago and realized that I would need additional power supplies. I went to EZ-Robot store and found the LiPo Battery (http://www.ez-robot.com/Shop/AccessoriesDetails.aspx?prevCat=103&productNumber=41) and the charger (http://www.ez-robot.com/Shop/AccessoriesDetails.aspx?prevProductId=41&productNumber=42).
I ordered two batteries and the charger.

Upon receiving the batteries I discovered that they do not hook up to the EZ-B v4. It appears that I will need some sort of adapter. This was very disappointing because nowhere in the description was this stated.

Additionally, I looked for videos and topics for this for several hours before coming across something that shows how to make the connector in this thread - http://www.ez-robot.com/Community/Forum/Thread?threadId=7053 .

My question is this what kind of connectors should I use? I cannot find one that is a barrel connector and I want to make sure I make it correctly.

Is it possible to use a Deans Charging adapter T Male Plug to Female Tamiya Head and then another adapter? I want to do this as safely and inexpensively as possible as it has already cost me $60 for the batteries and charger.


Upgrade to ARC Pro

Your robot can be more than a simple automated machine with the power of ARC Pro!

Very ironic - we just finished designing the adapter and it will be on the website for purchase within the next week. In the meantime, i believe a Revolution Robot harness will work. Use the Contact Us and reference this thread. Someone will make sure you get what you're require asap:D
Thank you so much, DJ! I will contact them right away. I appreciate your company's outstanding customer service. :)

Great customer service you say? Why, doesn't every company reply to customer inquires from here...

Today's my last day - back to the real world tomorrow. The summer has been beautiful but also very busy planning this upcoming year and implanting the plugin open framework - which you will see some awesome new plugins from many companies for their products and features this upcoming year now that we're branching out to attract third party companies to develop in the ARC open framework.
Got to remember, I was actually replying to your messages while being in that exact location in the middle of no where:) surprised to have cell coverage!
