    You will get false peaks.... parallel charging only works with LiPo's.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    It worked fine with me when I was still running NiMH packs in mine. I'd usually charge them at 3 amps (although I accidentally did it once at 5 amps, luckily without problems )and the only times I had false peaking issues was on my Onyx 240 when the right side charger started to act up and has started to false peak with several different NiMH packs of various sizes.
    Aw, Biscuits!

    I would charge them in SERIES if your charger can do it.
