Wonder why (1) has (4) wires?
...most only have (2) wires

Did ya try-n Google the make & model of your (4) wire charger?
...to gather any info you can

Are both chargers 24VDC?
& for the same type batteries?
...lead, SLA etc. (NOT lithium?)

If they're the same, I would proceed with some testing
(by simply checking the output plug with a multi meter)
...if not, I'd give it up.

Hopefully, you have a receptacle to connect to the chargers DC output plug.

* If not be very careful because them pins are kinda small & really close together & if you accidentally touch (2) pins together at the same time, with the MM probe, it would cause a "direct short" & probably "pop" the charger.

Moving on
Carefully, touch (1) probe (red) to (1) pin & the other probe (black) to another pin, while also watching the meter.

If you don't get a reading, try another pair of pins.

Their should be at least (1) pin that, when contacted to the red probe, shows positive (+) ~27VDC when/while the black probe is contacted to another pin.

This should indicate the positive (+) & the negative (-) pins of the chargers DC output plug.
& these are the (2) that should be connected to the battery pack, to charge the battery.
