Paraboards will work with all balance chargers but if your charger is only 10 amps then if you charge 4 2s packs your only charging at 2.5 amps per pack and you may aswell charge 1 pack at 2c if its 5000mah, that's where the extra power comes in, Icharger 4010 duo can charge at 40amps per side and really speed up your charging times.
This is correct, pl series are very powerful but only 1 output, so your stuck charging 1 voltage at a time, there also not as easy read as they have a small screen, but if you only have 1 type of packs the pl with a mpa will charge 6 packs at once.
Also in my opinion it's safer to charge say 3 batteries using 30 amps (2s 5000mah) for example making it 2c, then charging 1 battery at 25amps (2s 5000mah) at 5c as the packs will stay cooler and accept more charge, it will also last longer in the long run, also charging multiple packs with a paraboard will divide the resistance between them resulting in a better charge.
