I purchased this battery for my robotics project and this charger along with it. Since the regular use for these types of batteries is for rc cars they have very specific connectors and so i am unable to connect the battery and charger together because of the connectors and i am also unable to unable to connect the battery into a bread board for the robot. Ive done a bit of research and the batttery has a tamiya connector and the charger has a ec3 connector.

Is there a way to join the battery to jumper cables to plug into the robot or special connector that does this and what would I have to do in order to connect the battery to the charger? I was thinking about cutting off the connectors and using jumper cables to join the cables. Would this work?

If the connectors are wrong, there's nothing to stop you cutting them off and replacing them with whatever connectors suit your purpose. Just make sure you get the polarity (+ and -) the right way round, or bad things are likely to happen.
