Sounds like you're pretty patient buying things as you get the money. What's waiting a couple more months to do it right? I am sure you still have the standard NiMH packs; why risk damaging your new lipos? On another note, I don't know if you want to be sitting next to those lipos if you are charging them with the wrong charger.

Don't do it!!!! Lipo's are highly intolerant to incorrect charging. You can damage your lipos or even worse start a fire!!!

just like in the other thread everyone told you do not charge lipo's with a charger that is not for lipo batteries. DO NOT USE YOUR REEDY FOR THE LIPO'S. it is extremely dangerous and hazardous to do so.
