Default How to charge a JR Colt battery outside the transmitter?

Hi,

I have the retro transmitter JR Colt with battery JR Propo 2L3200 (LI-ion).
The battery is supposed to be charged inside the transmitter via NEC-A1530 AC-adaptor to charging jack on top of the transmitter.
By the way, this AC-adaptor was not included when I bought this very expensive 6-ch RC-radio....???

My problem,
I wish to use my RC-battery charger (Turnigy Reactor 250W 10A) to charge this battery (encl. picture)

The problem is the connectors, can´t find any information about make/type etc.
There are two different connectors on the battery, one larger with lock-function and one very tiny 2-pole. What´s the function for the tiny one?

I would be very grateful for help!

The battery lead has a JST XA series connector:

One type of mating connector:

The small connector is for the thermistor which monitors how hot the battery is.

The connector is $0.19 US. I don't know what kind of outrageous price it would be to ship to Sweden.

Great! Thank you for the information.
I hope I can find the connector/s within the EU so the cost will not be an issue
