Default Urgent LiPo help!

I bought a 2 used LiPos and the guy gave me a charging lead which goes in to the LiPo, however for the other end I don't have any lead that relates to it, I put the black wire in black and red in red on the LiPo and these 2 wires at the other end touched and it had a spark with some smoke and this is the result of the charging lead that was provided. Would the LiPo still be okay or is it a goner?

I need help identifying what lead I need to charge this damn LiPo as all the leads I have with my charger don't match up.

The lipo might be okay- watch it carefully when charging. What vehicle will it be used in?
Those are bullet connectors. ?3mm

Those look like the Castle Creations or Duratrax style Bullet connector. They are different from the generic connectors you see. You can check the size if you have metric wrenches to gauge them with, or use a micrometer or a caliper if you have one. It does look like a 4mm though. Not many 3.5 available in that style and length. If you can't really find anything that fits, just change out all connectors to the style that you use, that way there is no question.

The lipos should be ok. Do you have a battery checker to be sure?

This may be a dumb question, but, you are using a Lipo charger, right?
