If you mean the charger has a maximum charge rate of 7A/7000mA (no "h") then yes.

If you mean the charger has a capacity cut-off of 7000mAh then no. You would need to charge twice to get an 8000mAh battery full.

Providing you're discharging your Lipo to the recommended 80% discharge or less, then a 7000mAh limit on your charger will be plenty. i.e 80% of 8000mAh = 6400mAh.
