I'm not sure what you mean when you say do they charge at the same speed BUT.....when you parallel charge the charger treats your packs as if they are all one big pack. So if you plug in six 2s 500mah packs the charger sees it as a single 2s 3000mah. So it would take 1 hour at 3amps to charge 6 packs or 30 minutes if you can charge at 6 amps which would be 2c charge rate

With the charger you have now it would take something like 3 hours to charge all your packs. With that hobbyking charger you could charge them all in half an hour.

Keep in mind that you still need a power supply.

I'm not sure but i think that HK one is DC only meaning it won't plug into the wall. You would need a power supply or 12v battery. Unless i'm mistaken.

I'm gonna be safe with 2C....... they are only 20C discharge, I make it a rule to charge like this-10C:1C charge, 20C:2C charge, and so on.

Are you going to use the Turnigy you linked to? Radio Shack or your local hobby shop should have a 12v wall transformer. You won't use the alligator clips unless you're using a battery.
