The reason I ask is I will be running 1s lipo for 1/12th scale and 2s saddle pack lipo for my TC. It would be great if I can string my single cell lipo packs into two cell lipo saddle packs.
If you are using two identical 1s LiPo batteries, sure, you could wire them in series to get 7.4v. Wiring them in series is the same thing you do (with battery bars) when you build NiMH packs. Wiring them in series will give you 2x the voltage with the same capacity as 1s. So, if they were the 1s 4000mAh SMC packs, you'd get 7.4v 4000 mAh in series. I would just charge them individually to be safe.
