Default lipo question (turnigy 2s-3s charger)

can u charge a lipo through the balancer plugs? I just bought 2 turnigy 2s-3s lipo charger for $5 each and it only has ports to connect to 12V dc for power and the 2s and 3s balancer ports. it does not have ports for the actual battery to charge.

thx

This one?

It's for smaller capacity batteries, as it only puts out 1.2A max.....but it should charge them. Plug in a 4000Mah battery, better go to dinner and see a movie before you come back.....

for these smaller batteries I would say yes. I had a Blade CX2 for a while, and it had smaller batteries that just charged threw the balance taps as well....
