I need to replace a 24v 10a SLA battery pack and would like to use some spare 18650s I have laying around. I planned to

series 4 groups of 4 - 18650 to get 24v @ 8 amp which would be a plenty. I have several Lion/Liop chargers including RC and camcorder chargers that have selectable current settings (250 - 2000ma). If I charge one parallel group on 2000ma will it fully charge the group? I know it would take longer, but don't want to go to the trouble of building the pack if it's not going to work.
