    You need a JST-HX adapter 3s to connect to balance lead on charger, if your battery did not came with it.

    What do mean it won't charge. Did you add the right connector to match up with the connector on Phantom? As for the balancing connector, it's a Hyperion and the balance connector on the stock charger is a JST connector. I believe that's a safety feature on the stock charger. It will not charge a lipo if you don't have both connectors connected. They are just trying to help not shorten your lipos battery life. You could always change the balance connector.
