Default 2 batteries at once with 2-3 Cell LiPo Balancing Charger EFLC3110?

The Eflite EFLC3110 2-3 Cell LiPo Balancing Charger has two charging ports -- one for 2 cell packs and one for 3 cell. I have lots of both. Anybody know if it's safe/smart/pointless/dangerous to plug in two batteries at once?

ps: Looked for a manual; can't find one.

I don't know about that particular charger but ALL other chargers that I have read the instructions for say do not plug 2 batteries at once into the balance ports.

If you are looking to charge several batteries at the same time I would suggest a higher output, better balance charger and a parallel board.

Parallel charging several of the same cell count and same voltage batteries can save quite a bit of time.
