Though I’m not too sure what Prouse’s background or expertise is (EE, hobbyist-experimenter, YT’er, or what??), but batteries are of a considerable investment - I would assume with variables aplenty (cell types, BMS targets, etc)…Will’s short response seems somewhat dismissive of possible unknown variables..

That short answer by Will was a poor choice to post on my part,I guess..

This is the discussion and his video on this subject...

I think it has more to do with internal resistance of the batteries, if different they will charge and discharge at different rates. You try it and check each battery with a amp meter and see if they charge and discharge at the same rate.
