How do I charge this Multiplex batttery?

A few years ago my father got me the easystar and a battery for it and I got a lipo charger from some rtf plane but the ports dont fit, what kind of charger do I need for it?
It is a 2cell pack I believe at 7.4v ,2000 mah

Your best bet would be to select a connector that is more common and popular, such as the Deans Ultra connector. It requires some soldering ability, but it's a solid connector that is widely available in many parts of the world. The Multiplex M6 connector that you have pictured can be difficult to come by.

So I cut the wire that goes to the green head and solder a Deans Ultra right? Or is there any charger that already charges this so I dont have to do anything. That'd be more preffered. Thanks

Right. Remember to cut just one wire at a time.

You can also check with your local hobby shop if you have one. I believe those Multiplex connectors are quite popular in Europe and not very popular here in the USA.

Probably, the balance connector is not the same. It will fit if you trim a little, however be careful because you will burn pcb traces inside the charger if you inset it the wrong way.

You should put your location in your header. If I had seen an overseas location, I wouldn't have recommended the ebay seller.
