Would it be possible to reduce charge time by treating each cell of a battery as its own individual battery to be charged on it's own? Would it even matter if each cell is charged separately/individually? If it matters, I'm talking about Lithium Iron(II) Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries/cells. To put it simply, I would think charging twelve identical batteries would take the same amount of time to charge a single one meaning you would have about twelve times the stored energy in the same amount of time.
Does this make sense? I hope it does. If not I can clarify even further.
Thanks to anyone who took the time to read this and especially consider my question and/or reply with thoughts or comments or more questions! :)
