Charging a 4.8v receiver battery with servo connector

My charger has a Deans output. My receiver battery is a NiMH with a male servo connector to go to the receiver.

I soldered a female servo extension to a Deans and plugged the battery lead into that, but I think the resistance is too high because the charger says "broken connection." I know it's not the actual physical connection.

How do we charge these batteries through a servo lead?

Resolved - the battery leads did not match the extension leads. Simple fix. So it goes.

Most chargers designed for multiple chemistries should come with an adapter for that kind of battery. <Normal safety statements inserted here>

Lots of places sel an "octopus" charge leed, its banana plugs for the charger end and has like 8-10 of the most popular connectors on it.
I was skeptical at first, but bought one and love it.
You should get one, instead of making adapters, which I have done in the past.
