That is a very good point. I saw someone else do a thread on using the stock balancer and the stock charger, but they were using 10-cell packs, and utilizing the stock end-caps on the batteries. Check out this post to see what I am talking about.
Utilizing Stock Balancer and Charger on 10-Cell A123 packs
I am not sure how the stock balancer would work with fewer than 10 cells. It would take some investication. I have 4 of them sitting on my bench right now, so I can do some experimenting and see what I can come up with. No real loss if I blow one or two up in the name of science!
