The Much More charger can only charge at 1A for LiPo, so unless you want to wait a long time for it to charge you're gonna need a new charger.

yes but if u have the time i recomend it cause for lipo's i have read that it is better for them to charge at a lower amperage 1a to avoid them from expanding ( if they expand you have a big problem on your hands, any other lipo battery besides Kokham or Orion will blow up if they expand and you keep chargin them)

The Orion/Kokam Lipo pack should be charged at 1C, so 4.8A. This is straight from Rick Hohwart.
