Maybe. But this home-built charger is better than most you can buy. It charges each cell separately and doesn't need to balance.

Balancing is slow and often wears cells out quicker by wasting charge
during balancing. Balancing chargers are more complex and error prone.

Independent, non-balancing chargers like this one are better and simpler.

Balancing is bad. Charging each cell separately to the right voltage is way better.
