Default checkpoint charger question

I am looking into getting a 1/8 electric buggy and I am wondering if my checkpoint 1030 charger will be able to charge the 4 cell lipo pack I will need. The charger says that it will charge up to 4 cells however the matcher says it will only do 3 cells. Is matching important on these packs? and if so what can I do to be able to use my charger or what is a good charger that will do the job at the track but not kill the bank? I would prefer to keep my checkpoint

Thanks

If you peel back the sticker on the balancer you'll see that it will handle a 4 cell. It's the same balancer as the Electrofly one but has a Checkpoint sticker on it that covers the other LEDs.

The 1030 will charge a 4 cell but that's it, no 5 or 6 cell lipos.
