In order for comparisions to be valid they need to be done under rigorous conditions, with professional grade equipment being used for testing.

I've read that hobbyist chargers should only be expected to be accurate to within about 5% or so. Well, I'd like to know which chargers are less accurate than that, which ones are in that ballpark, and which ones are superior and are accurate to within 1% or so. I don't get any of that information here.

So it appears that there is no professional group, website, magazine, etc. which does this type of testing. It appears that we hobbyists are being left to our own devices, forced to rely upon fellow hobbyists feelings and opinions.
