  • I saw a question from a while back about using this charger (or another sparkfun charger) to charge multiple LiPo’s simultaneously, though the question was asking about charging batteries configured in series. I’m curious if anyone has tried to use this or another charger to charge multiple batteries configured in parallel and if it did/didn’t or would/wouldn’t work. I’m also unclear as to how to compare the charging rate listed above to maximum USB load ratings (e.g. 500 mA for USB 2.0 from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_Serial_Bus#Power) to know if charging three parallel would even be feasible. Charging the batteries separately is just a nuisance, so any advice is appreciated! Thanks!

No public wish lists :(
