Laptop Battery Charging Answered

i salvaged a battery pack from an old laptop and i was wondering if i could charge the cells in the pack using the laptop charger that came with it. can i connect the power connector rom the charger straight to the control board inside the pack or do i have to get a different charger to charge each individual cell? bottom left of the picture is where i think the power goes in and out (red and black wire).


. If you can ID the voltage, they are Lithium Ion cells. You should be able to find a charger.

this is a 10.8V battery pack and each cell is a 3.7v and i think 1100mah
