lithium batteries are known to burst into flames.

ALWAYS monitor the battery during charge but i see you cannot do that with your application so DONT take the risk it is best left as it is.

It is critical that the charger output is matched to the battery voltage. You can't just bang on any old supply Lion and Lipo batteries can and do burst into flames when badly charged.

Dont take the risk.
