Default Lipo Charger and a Battery with integrated BMS

Hello RCU community. As above stated, I have a charger which has a failsafe function; without detection over the balancer port, it won't charge. The problem is that I have two batteries with the integrated BMS (LiFePo4), without balance connection of course. Is there some way to trick the charger into thinking that the load is there? Some jumper solution?

Thanks, Marko

Select appropriate LiPo/Lilon/LiFe/LiHV "Charge" mode for charging a battery without balance lead.

You can make a cable that fakes a balancer port.
I use them on my 1S and 2S LiPo packs that don't have balancer ports to charge on my iCharger 308 Duo and other "smart" chargers.
You google-search for "charging 1S LiPo on smart charger" and find a few schematics and some places that sell them pre-made.
