Do you need a different type of charger for Lithium batteries? Or will my regular charger work just fine?

Yes, you will need a Lithium capable charger. Most Li batteries have a Battery Management System (BMS) built in and can fool a conventional charger. A charger made for Li will have the capability to make the most of the BMS to fully charge the battery. You've invested in battery technology, it's only another small hop to insure it works the way you want it to. You can get a pretty good Li charger here for about $20, shop around for a few jigs and get free shipping: https://energizedoutdoors.com/collections/lifepo4-battery/products/lifepo4-battery-2-4-charger

Or you can spend more for a more fully featured trickle charger: https://smile.amazon.com/NOCO-G1100-Advanced-Battery-Maintainer/dp/B004LX3AXQ/ref=sr_1_fkmrnull_3?keywords=noco+genius+g1100&qid=1551809182&s=gateway&sr=8-3-fkmrnull

Or even better: https://smile.amazon.com/NOCO-G3500-UltraSafe-Battery-Charger/dp/B004LWVEKS/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=noco+genius+g3500&qid=1551809243&s=gateway&sr=8-3
To fish or not to fish? That's a stupid question!

Depends on the charger and battery. Generally speaking you will want the specific charger for that battery.
