Does anyone know where I can get a wall-mounted plug so I don't have to open the engine/tender when I want to charge the battery?

The 2200mah, 11.1v Lipo battery I have has what they're calling a "TP style 4-pin connector" that plugs into the balance charger.  I want a wall/bulkhead-mounted connector so I can plug the battery into it from the inside and then connect the charger to the plug on the outside.  Here's a photo of the battery, the white plug is the one I'm talking about.

Perhaps Hobby King?

Tony, I've looked but I'm not even sure what to call it L:

I did see something that looked like what I wanted but it was almost $50[whack]

Sorry, mate, there you'll have to brew your own. Find a suitable connector here, and proceed from there.

There are no bulkhead connectors for the balance leads available that I know of, presumably because the RC world recommends removing LiPo batteries to avoid losing the model if there is a problem while charging.

Consider also, that your model will be inactive the entire time it is being charged. Removing the battery and swapping in another one allows you to keep running.

Thanks folks, guess I'll have to figure out how to make the battery easily accessible.

Perhaps 2 x of these?

One from the battery pack to the outside of the model. Into which plugs the second cable to the charger.
A$5.72 for 10 pieces = not expensive.
Yes I know they are on Back Order but Hobby King are good at restocking promptly.

Here's how I did the connector on my little air powered Porter underground loco. The second pic shows the wiring before hiding it. I think you can do this...

The Deltang receiver is in the sander, you can see the green light from it, and the batteries are in front of the motor. Tight fit, but it works.
