Default lipo charging

I ordered a 4800 orion pack and an orion advantage charger for it. But when I got the charger is was dead, so it is on the way to Orion. I have a Dynamite charger that has a lipo setting and will charge 1- 3 cell at a max of 2.5 amp. I used it to put a charge on my pack last night and it seemed to work fine. My question is will I be ok using this charger until the orion gets shipped back without hurting the cells?

here is the charger in question.

Thanks in advance

Mike

You are probably ok with it. I went through the specs and manual, however, and couldn't find any mention that it uses CC/CV charging for lipo and whether the trickle charge function is disabled in lipo mode. Keep a close eye on it.
