Default Do i really need balancer to charge 2s1p batteries?

Do i realy need to use balancer to charge my 2s1p batteries?
I use Ice charger if it make any difference.

Can you help me to find in online shops some balancer for 2s only? I don't want to buy balancer that can charge 6s batteries. I don't need it.

Thanks in advance.

i use the cousin charger the checkpoint tc 1030.what kind of lipo do you have? i have an smc lipo that has a deans plug. so i use a blinky balancer from astro flight. or if you have a lipo with bullet connectors like the orion, you would have to get the checkpoint or trakpower balancer. it is always good to keep your lipo battery balanced. the 2s means it has 2 cells wired in series. you would not want one cell to have more voltage than the other. after a while it wont operate properly and will not last long.
