Can I use 3 Cell Charger for 4 Cell?
Ok..so I'm still learning all the terms ,and electrical stuff so bear with me
I've ordered and EDF jet which comes with a 4S 2200mAh 20C 14.8 Volt Li-Po Battery. I didn't order a charger hoping that maybe my collection of chargers here should work. Here are the ones I have:
3-Cell Balancing Lipo Charger 1.3A (this came with a Supercub LP)
Eflite 2-3 Cell Balancing Lipo Charger (came with Eflite Apprentice)
3-Cell 11.V Lipo Charger (came with Hobbico SkyFly Max 2)
Question I have is wheter any of these chargers would work for a 4 Cell Lipo battery?

Unfortunately, no. To charge a 4 cell lipoly, you'll need a 4 cell charger.
There are ways to charge a 4 cell battery with a 2 cell charger but it's highly recommended to get a proper charger in order to avoid arduously long charge times and other potential issues.

Yeah, you can't use a 3s charger to charge a 4s. A 3s charger cuts off at 12.6 volts, whereas a 4s lipos nominal voltage is 14.8v, fully charged at 16.8v.
