 Apr 15, 2016, 07:31 PM Registered User United States, NY, Rochester Joined Oct 2015 215 Posts As long as they are the same cell count like 3s or 4s, then the capacity does not matter, So don't mix cell counts on the same board, And just add all the capacities together to get your charge rate. Example If you wanted to charge a 1000mah with a 1300 and a 1800 and let's say a 4000, then you would charge at 8.1 amps for a 1c charge rate.

May I suggest you read this: http://www.tjinguytech.com/charging-how-tos

That said, I routinely charge 2200mah (300x) and 460mah (180 CFX) all in parallel, up to a combination of 15 batteries at a time with no ill effects. The same will hold true for discharging. On a side note, when wiring cells in SERIES (not PARALLEL) your voltage changes, which means you can wire a 3S and a 4S in series provided they are both the SAME capacity. It's all very interesting stuff, I suggest you give it a read!
