Default Run 2 12v chargers from 6s pack

Hi. Got home today with a badly crashed heli and 6 full packs, that I need to discharge, and not with the ultra slow charger discharge.
Is it possible to connect two chargers in series from the 6s packs to charge other packs?
Something like this 😁

No, chargers should not be connected in series.

It might be possible in theory...

To use 3 wires from the balance plug plus the black to each charger...

The problem is that you don't have enough wire size using the balance plug wires and there is no way to equalize the draw perfectly

You'd probably destroy the battery...or worse...and need the fire dept

Not advised

Got a spare 6S motor you can power up and use up some of the battery?
If not...the storage mode is the answer
