You can can connect one fully charged and one fully dead and they will properly charge to 4.2V per cell with out overcharging. This is an extreme example and I'd not do it, but it will work.

You can charge SAME number of cells but ANY capacity and ANY charge state mixed together.

Here is the best setup/discussion I've seen:

I now made my 8 way parallel adapter and charge all my lipos at once after the day.

Nice and clean setup:

cool vid:
+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.

Don't want to solder? buy it here with free shipping:
Just got one question regarding the parallel balance plug in :: How does the balancer portion of the charger know which cell to balance ? You also gave an extreme example of how to do parrellel charging ; YET you say that you would not do it . Quite contradictory I would say !
