OK, I recently picked up a brushless mini-t that came with a lipo battery. I have a Superbrain 977 charger that is supposed to be able to charge lipos but the stupid thing is broke again, this will be the second time ive had to send it out to be fixed, but anyway.

How do I charge the battery? I see online some people are saying balancing isn't necessary. My battery is a 2 cell. If balancing is necessary what is a good charger? I'm going to get something else than the 977. Probably going pick up an ice or triton or something like that in the next few days, but I don't understand the whole balancing thing, I've looked on tower and they don't really show any good pictures of balancers. I'm confused, help please. lol.
