Default Parallel Charging at 1.3S, is it possible, are there risks?

I have an Icharger 206b with a max charge rate of 20A and a power supply that can put out 25a. I want to parallel change 6 * 2200 lipos as fast and as safe as possible. Right now I set my charger for 13.2a which is 1S for all 6 batteries and of course it takes upwards of 40min o complete.

Can I bump the charger to its maximum of 20a while charging all 6 lipos? At my calculation each battery would be getting something like 1.3S. Any advice?

20A into six 2200mAh packs is actually 1.5C and yes, it will be perfectly fine.
