Default Parkzone/Eflite micro connector female?

More of a connector question than a battery question, but anyway...

My wife listened to my subtle(HAH!) hints and got me a Blade MCX for Christmas. So far, I only have the one battery for it, as both LHS are sold out. I would like to be able to charge the battery on one of my "good" chargers, but cannot figure out where to source a plug for an adapter. The pin spacing is different than the micro plugs on the losi car products, different than a servo connector, and different from everything else I have lying about the basement. It is the same connector type used in the ember, vapor, micro cessna and citabria, but I can't find it anywhere.

Anybody found these connectors for sale? TIA.

Matt,

The only place I found one in stock was at www.redrockethobbies.com.

No problem. I just got one, and plan to solder some connectors on it to use it with my Hobbico Accu-Cycle Elite charger. I figure I can consistently get better, more complete charges in slightly less time than with the stock charger (since the stock charger looses it's "oomph" as the AA batteries drop their volts).

Got that right. I only managed 5 or six charges on the included batteries before the charger stopped finishing the charge (sitting with the LED on forever). Still gives enough juice to fly for 5 minutes without LVC kicking, but could cost a fortune. I think I'll stick some eneloops in that charger until I get the pigtail...

I bought NiMHs (Energizer, I think) and a quick charger from Walmart, so I keep them topped off, but still, I'd like to be able to charge them from a 12VDC source.

One of the members has a USB charger, and is planning a 3-port 12VDC charger for these lipos; I can't wait for him to start selling the 3-port!
