Yeah, as far as your charger goes, it doesn't care if your battery is internally wired as "1P", "2P", or what ever. As long as only one balance cable is brought out for the entire battery pack.
As for me, I'm using those 2300 Mah (Milliampere Hour) A123 cells, where they require two parallel batteries to get up to a 70 Amp capability. Most of mine are wired as 6S2P configurations. The 6S2P requires 6 times 2 or twelve cells for the battery pack.
