temperature sensor for charger

My B6 has a couple alligator clips for a temp sensor.

I see tons of $3 sensors on ebay that have a rx/batt/servo type connector.

Is that what I want? Then just clip alter the connection to hook it up?

Does that need to be permanently be mounted to a pack or can it just be held against it when charging?

Is there some other one recommended that would be better?

The alligator clips are for charging, the Temperature sensor uses a 3 pins connector as discussed in that thread:

Temperature sensors are usually just tapped on the battery,some have a clamp type fixture (Triton,Ice). You need only one sensor which stay with the charger,the charger needs to be programmed for a given cut-off temperature.
