    You can... some have... but I do not advise to do so.
    Charging NiMh in series (which is better than parallel for NiMh) can lead to a false peak or a late peak detection.
    Basically... you could severely overcharge one while the other gets up to voltage.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.
