with an intelligent charger that monitors cell voltage probably yes. I have never tried as I have multiple chargers and run them off a solar/ pb battery system and don't see the need. problem is sometimes the Charge C rate is 1 or 2 /d now can be up to 5......

So to elaborate, you will either have to charge at 1C if you want to charge the different cells, but I would not recommend it as the smart charger would see 2, 3 cell packs as a 6 cell and would probably stop charging if 3 of the cells were at full capacity and the other 3 were not... Would most likely report a fault.
Do not be divided from the truth by what you would like to Believe!
