Who's using the X2 charger ? Thoughts?

I'm looking for a new 6S charger - charging 2 at a time. Anyone using the Hitec X2 Ultima Dual charger?

Any comments appreciated.

Current reading is not the most accurate but it works. I do like the iChargers better because they are more accurate and the charge cutoff points are adjustable. Not that it makes a big difference but for example to charge LiFe the X2 charge cutoff is 3.6 per cell while with the iChargers I like to set it to 3.65. Again not a big deal.

I've had one a couple months now and like it. When charging 6s on port #2 I find one of the cells always reads high(0.05v) no matter which pack. But as it turns out it is not a safety issue because reading high just means it will starting throttling the current sooner toward the end of charge than it would otherwise. So its okay and happens on just one the port. So if I am doing 2x6s port #2 finishes a little later than port #1.
