I actually have a bunch of RC trucks and Helicopters and a nice RC balance charger, that does Lipo, LIfe, NIMH, Nicad

How many cells are in the shorai? is there a balance plug I could use? ( My charger will balance up to 6 cells ). from .1 to 8amp charge rate.

If I could find a balance plug, I could at least try it see if I can bring it back.
I'm assuming I will have to charge it like a regular RC battery .. Plug the main +/- wires in, and additionally plug the balance port in ( if there is one? )
