Default Electrolysis Multiple Items Simultaneously

Just curious what others experienced cleaning multiple items at the same time.

I generally try to clean at 12V & 2 amps, sometimes bump it up to 10 amps on large items or just to get the electrolysis really going.

Higher current, faster results, but you can also "burn" your item.
Lower current, slower results, more control not ruining your item.

Lets exaggerate this to cleaning 8 items simultaneously, at 2 amps on the charger, you're only running .25 amp through each one (parallel wired). Seems this would take a ridiculous amount of time being such low current.

My question is, when cleaning multiple items, what current do most of you run through it.

Im cleaning an ax head and a horseshoe at the same time @ 10 amps, (or 5 amps through each one), kinda hard to "burn" these items because of the mass. They are bubbling nicely.

Thoughts or experiences?
