My experience over the last few months (admittedly, with new packs) suggests that this does work. I've run four Apex 1350 packs through a total of about 380 charges, measuring individual cell voltages on each charge, and what I've seen is that for voltage differences of less than about 0.1V, charging at about 1/4C does seem to let the low cells "catch up" with the high ones. What I've seen repeatedly for these packs is that charging for about 15 minutes at 250 mA brings all cells to within 0.01V and I can go ahead from that point with a normal 1C charge.

Will it work with your packs? No guarantees, but it seems like a pretty good gamble to me.
