Help!

LiFe charging through balance port on cheap charger ok?


Hi guys,
I just got some used Dominators and they came with a Zippy 1800 9.9v 5c. I do not have the adapter for the JST plug but I want to get out and fly with my goggles as soon as possible. However, I do have this charger(http://www.banggood.com/Eachine-Race...p-1007679.html) that charges through the balance port. Would this work for charging the LiFe?
Thanks,

No.

That charger is only for liPos (4.2V/cell charge voltage) not LiFe (3.6V/cell).

The charger will never stop charging and you will seriously overcharge the pack and risk damage, possibly a fire.

That is what I figured. Thanks!
