Re lithium and parallel charging

Has anyone charged the new lipo's in parallel?

I know the manufacturer says to charge them singly...

Tonight i hooked up my 2 3s1p 1200 kokams to my triton charger in parallel to see what would happen. Seemed to charge fine. When they were done I tried to peak them individually and got 2 more ma in one and 10 ma in the otherbefore it peaked.

If this was possible it would save my charging time by a bunch!

So long as the batteries are discharged equally, you should be able to charge them as a 3S2P single pack. But if they are not discharged equally, you could overcharge one pack.
