I thought we were talking about series cells.
To me, it sounds like he charges them in parallel, use them individually, then storage-charge them in series. Doing the last part with balancing can take some time, unless the balancer have a high discharge rate, compared to the cell capacity.
If balance-charged, used and then storage-charged one at a time, they should be more than close enough for the next balance-charge. But I assume he wants to avoid the one at a time part
