Can this Charger charge this battery?

For the past couple days I have been looking through the internet for the perfect battery and charger for very little and i think I found it!!! Please let me know if you think this battery and the charger will be compatible and will charge properly. I intend on cutting the leads of so I can have matching leads  (so the battery and the charger can connect obviously)

Here is the battery I intend on purchasing:

Here is the charger I intend on purchasing to charge the battery:

Please let me know if this charger will be able to charge the battery!

Thank you so much for all your guys help! I love instructables, everyone helps everyone out!

As steve says, the one you linked will work, and it's safe...Only problem with the charger is it doesn't balance the series cells. Important for longer cell lifespan.

I would recommend something like that for 2-3 multi-cell lithium charging.

You mention in your keywords arduino altoids...Will a 106mm x 36mm x 14mm battery fit? A standard altoids tin is 57mmx89mm.
Battery volts = charger volts: check.
Charger properly designed: check.

Yep, you're good, and safe ! to go.
