    Not sure but I wouldn't try charging them in series with the charger that comes in the box. I don't think it can handle 12 cells.

    I'm pretty sure that charger won't handle 2 packs in series. You're still planning to go Lipo soon right? I would look at something capable of 12+ cells nimh and atleast 4s preferably 6s (if you plan on running 3s packs) I'm gonna order 2 of these asap and see if they are any good.

    Will do. even if you're not going Lipo for awhile that charger should charge 2 7.2v batts in series no problem and be ready to charge and balance your Lipos later.
