if your connectors are failing as it is, then an adapter won't help.
Your better bet would be to replace the connectors all together

I don't think the OP is trying to find an Tamiya to Deans adapter for his gun, but the actual charger 120v to 12v block adapter, which is missing from the picture. He already has everything to charge the battery.

op needs adapter for mini tam

But you are not suppose to charge multi-cell li-po batteries directly... That's why there's a cable for balance charging.

There not point in having a mini connector then a deans. It completely defeats the purpose of the deans.

I'm not quiet sure what you are trying to say but he doesn't' need a mini-tam to deans connector to charge his lipo with this B6 clone. Coach even mentioned this. It already comes with everything except the big black adapter on the TA site.

Actually, no, I didn't. The block adapter I was mentioning is the balancer adapter.

His LiPo's balancer plug connects to that adapter and the adapter into the charger. In some cases some chargers don't require the mini tamiya plug to be connected.

The older B6 clones had multiple balancer connectors built into the charger.

I didn't note the power supply was missing since that wasn't the OP's concern.

To storage charge my battery and balance charge my battery, it needs both to be plugged in. Like everyone else I work and there is no way I can go into TA during the week, and considering I paid 35$ for the lipo, there iS no way I want to leave it at a full charge, for a week or even more.
Also bought tactical knee pads there on sale from 35$ to 10$. The plastic mount for the strap snapped on both knee pads first time trying them on.
Considering I use to work at a paintball proshop/field, I know prices of inventory the owner pays and to go from 35$ to 10$ is a sale of 250% off so I know they knew they where garbadge, and decided to sell anyway...... Very disappointed.

oh snap, are you serious? where have you been getting this incorrect information? I have lipo's that were charged to full for weeks.

wait, so you bought a new battery, can't charge it but need to storage charge it because it's fully charged?

If you really need that adapter, I'll make you one for $4 if you pick it up.

i believe you should go check out how lipos work exactly before you injure yourself or ruin your batteries.

I have a exactly same charger from the same place...

It don't come with tamiya connectors of any kind. I think that is how the manufacturer made it. Not something lost/missing from package.
That charger need to have both the balanced connector and the dean connector pluged in to balance-charge a lipo. As R.I.T.Z said, some charger uses both connectors.

So either change your gun and battery to Deans or buy/make an adapter. (I wouldn't recommand the adapter... Since that will defeat all the purpose of deans.)

And always, always, balance charge your lipo.
