It is possible to charge packs of the same number of cells in parallel on any LiPoly charger if it has enough output. I have often charge 5 3S Packs of between 1200 and 1500 mAh on my Astro Flight 109 charger.

Oh ok I didnt know that. How do you wire a single charger to charge more than one battery? Like this? if you have 2 batteries. Make a charge cord with 2 say deans connectors and wire the connector + to+ and - to - ?
I like the duratrax ice charger it can put out 8amps of power.
What do you think about this charger?

Also if you have 2 1800mah batteries what amp setting should you use. 3600 or 1800?

Charge rate is based on total capcity so two 1800s would be charged at 3.6A for a 1C charge rate.
