Default Unboxxed my first FPV drone and oops...

I unboxed my Eachine x220 Wizard drone this morning, remounted all screws with threadlocking compound (so many came loose). I made such a rookie mistake, I accidentally briefly shorted out the included 4s Lipo battery while connecting it to the charger. I heard a pop and burning smell that was coming from the charger. I waited some hours and registered 15 volts on the meter. I then correctly connected the battery to the charger again, the green light came on. I plugged the charger into the wall, and the red light also came on indicating that it is charging. I've been watching the battery and charger while it has been charging tonight. I also placed it inside of a stainless steel box... just incase... I was just worried about the pop I heard that came from the charger.
