I nearly always parallel charge between 4 and 6 x 550mah 1s batteries. I will fly them all and then charge them all. When at home this is always at 1C or less but if I charge at the flying field I always charge at 2C. I know that charging at more than 1C reduces the life of the battery but waiting for batteries to charge when at the field reduces my life even further and so I accept the hit!
I think most Lipos will charge at 2C without too much reduction in their life.
