My lipo battery wire going into the white connector that goes into the charger is snapped in half. Its about midway down the wire. Should I just solder it or is there something else I should do? Thanks!

It was the red balancing wire. I heard a pop too when it happened

What kind of pop?  And yes, you need to rejoin the wire in order to properly charge and balance the battery?

"Pop" when charging?  shooting?  swinging it around like a dead rat by the tail?

Its not expanding right? Has the snapped wire come in contact with anything?

it was just a super diminished version of a airsoft gun shooting. I accidently closed the wire in the end cap on my stock and it snapped in half.. i  never noticed until my charger started blinking and i was trying to figure out what was wrong

OK, you accidentally cut the wire.  It needs to be there for balanced charging so you should solder it together and insulate the joint.

Well at least you lived to talk about it.  :rolf2:  
Just kidding.  :)
There is a slight possibility that you may have damaged your battery if it sparked and made a "pop" sound when broken wires touched and closed a circuit.  I have in the past done that to couple of lipo batteries in the past :shiftyninja: but they still work fine.  So as others have stated already, resolder the the wires and heat shrink the joints.
