Charge cell phone batteries with balance charger?

Hi all

I have a turnigy accucell-6 balance charger:

I'm trying to figure if it's possible to charge my cellphone Li-ion batteries externally with this charger...Can anyone tell me if this is possible?

If so- how would anyone suggest physically connecting the battery charger to my big new Samsung galaxy note 2 3100 mAh spare Lithium ion battery? The terminals are tiny ( see picture of the battery here: - in the picture you can see there are 3 terminals- the 'positive' and 'negative' terminals are marked- what's the middle one? It would be great if there is a way to connect/ charge my spare batteries and not have to purchase an external cell phone battery charger that only charges at 0.5A when I could charge at 3.1A with this... Am I right in thinking these batteries are all '1cells'/1S'? - on the back it says"3.8V Li-ion" - I take it that means a 1S ( so no balancing required)- the accucel charger is supposed to charge Li-ion batteries but what setting is 3.8V? - that appears as 0.1V higher than even 'Lipos.'.?

Grateful for any feedback.

Thanks in advance!
