Batteries too far out of balance for BMS

I’m finally getting around to finishing my build, years later . . . I’m about to finish wiring my 10s Bastech BMS. I pulled out my new 5x 2 cell batteries and was hoping they would all be close to balanced from HobbyKing, as I do not have a hobby charger.

1 is reading - 7.34 3 are reading - 7.33 1 is reading - 7.29

I just wanted to verify these numbers were close enough to not require balancing prior to connecting to BMS. I’ll be using a power brick to charge and balance.
