If they are dead parallel with no blocking, the higher voltage pack
will flow current to the lower voltage pack until the two voltages are

That being said, it remains to be seen if that is a -good- thing. It
seems like a neat experiment and I'd think somebody with a few xtra
floodies and AGMs on a bench could try it out with less hazard :) I
know I am going to be once i get mine setup right!
