Default dumb question time

Hi all, I have a redcat car and need to get a battery charger other than the one that came with it. The plugs on the battery are round and was wondering if these have any specific name to them? I've been looking at chargers and they seem to have different ends for the batteries.
mark me confused
Ok just realized it's not a Tamiya, traxxas or deans connection, hope this helps?
Thanks, Kevin

I believe they are called HXT 4mm "bullet" connectors.

You will probably need to get some separate charging leads when getting another charger, or you could do some soldering. I don't know of any charger (other than some RTR packaged ones) that comes with HXT bullets.

Thanks Rusty that's the ones right there. I figured I might have to make a pigtail and adapt to a charger. After the fun my grand daughters had with the car yesterday I had better get busy.
Have any suggestions where I can find them?

Thanks very much, Kevin
