Default LiPo built in balancer

Team Orion LiPos have some kind of built in balancer. What does it really mean ? I believe what they mean is only one extra female connector so you can charge/check each cell separately. Still you need proper balancer, for example v-balance from trakpower, to balance cells. Am I right ? Or there is really some kind of true balancer inside, which checks voltage of each cells and balance them.

From Orion's site:

Balancing port included for those that feel the need

To balance your LiPo battery, we recommend using Team Orion's Avionics SBS Stability Balancing System. Instructions on how to modify the harness to work with Team Orion Platinum 4800 mAh and Carbon 3200 mAh LiPo batteries can be found here.
