Default Battery/Charger question for a T-REX

I'm pretty new to posting here but been a long time reader. I just got one quick question before placing my final order and flying.

The last thing I need to fly is a balancer/charger and some spare batteries. I've decided on the CellPro 4s and maybe some of those cheap Zippy's for training. My question is, what connector (balancer tap) does the CellPro 4S come stock with? I'd like to be able to use the Align pack that came with my 450S and also the Zippy's. Can anyone tell me what adaptor(s) I'll need to order to make all this work? I'm looking here (http://www.fmadirect.com/products.htm?cat=45&nid=4) for the adaptors. Thanks for the help.

I've had the 450S and been training in Reflex XTR for about a month now. Really looking forward to getting it in the air!

I would consider this combo pack:

You will either need this, or just get the charger and make your own 12v 5a power supply. As for an adapter, they no longer appear to make the one I have, however this should suffice:

So the Thunder Power/PolyQuest connector is the same as the JST-XH? Too bad there's no stadardization in this part of the industry. Thanks for the help.

You made an excellent choice with the Cellpro. I have two other Lipo chargers and a couple of different balancers......never use 'em. Only use the Cellpro anymore. And extra adaptors if needed aren't that expensive.

They also sell pigtails that you can splice in place of the odd balancer plug.
