However, my main issue is that I need a very very cheap charger for this battery; can anyone help?

As this is the first Lipo I will own my understanding is that you change it using the other 4 lead connector on the battery. Is this correct?
You need SAFE, reliable, and accurate, not cheap. There is a potential fire hazard when charging LiPo batteries. The potential is relatively small. However in my opinion the potential goes up with "very, very cheap".

Here is a good, inexpensive, charger that will do all chemistries.

If you only need LiPo look at this one:

Both of those chargers are very reliable, safe, and accurate.

Some chargers only charge through the main discharge leads. Some chargers only charge through the balance leads.

Some chargers use both the main discharge leads and the balance leads to charge.

The two I referenced use only the balance leads to charge and balance the battery.
