Default Charging 14mz without 120v

I will be using my 14mz Futaba for AP work in remote locations. My FPV box has a charger which I can use (powered by 30amp/h lipo and 60w solar panel). Question is, the LiIon two cell battery for the radio doesn't have any balance taps, just a + and -. I noticed that my FPV goggle batteries also have no tap but have a balancing circuit built into the pack. Would this be the same for the Futaba batteries?

That same battery is also used on some video cameras. I asked that exact same question at my local battery specialist supplier about a year ago.
