As @Robin Bennett has suggested in a comment, your best bet would be to contact the manufacturer to be certain. However, the following are some things that need to be correct for the battery to be compatible and safe to use: Dimensions - check these exactly as there might be small changes (grooves, protrusions) to prevent an incompatible battery from ...

For a normal, "raw", unprotected LiPo you just hook it up to a charger and select the NiCad or NiMh setting (yes, for a LiPo), and set it to 1/20C charge rate (Capacity / 20). Then, you charge it until it's > 3.0V/cell. Then, you switch to 1/10 C until past 3.5V/cell or so, then maybe do 0.5C until full. I wrote extensively about that on my ...

Putting LiPo batteries in parallel is fine so long as they all begin at a similar charge voltage. Read more about it in my answer here: How can I safely parallel charge my LiPo batteries? When you put two equal batteries in parallel, their capacity doubles, their combined internal equivalent series resistance (ESR) gets cut in half, and their max current ...
