Actually many chargers will charge through the main “discharge plug as well” and only balance through the 4 pin connector.
The main connector has all the cells wired in series and can carry the full discharge rate, the smaller multi-pin plug has pairs wired to each cell, so that you can monitor each cell voltage independently while charging. This is also used by the charger to draw down a cell that is slightly higher in voltage while charging so that it will end up balanced across the pack.
