I didn't even notice it was out of stock.

So, I'm busted!
You could have argued at least it has an ETA

So what's wrong with THESE?

I ordered two of 'em on Wednesday and got them today. They look like they're top quality and the balance lead plugs right into my Hitec X4.

Yes you can.

Read some of the post linked to above, and see if you can tell at what current you would need to charge them at 1C?

You have it!

I wasn't trying to be a smart a$$, just wanted to make sure you understood what you wanted to do.

Parallel charging is great, you'll enjoy having more batteries ready in the time it would normally take to do just one.
