What's a good all-in-one lipo battery analyzer?

Looking for some input on a good all-in-one unit that can be used as a lipo battery analyzer/fuel gauge/watt meter/ etc. I've looked at two that Hobby Lobby sells. Does anyone have a recommendation on another brand or type? Thanks in advance.

The PowerLog 6S is a tiny but richly featured device.

Input voltage range: 4.5 – 60.0VDC
Current measurement range: -130A – +130A(continuance -40A – +40A)
Cell voltage range: 0.05 – 28.0VDC
External temperature measurement range: -55℃– +125℃ (-67 oF–+257 oF)
Pulse measurement range: 10us–999999us
Steering gear pulse output range: 0–20ms (0.5us step)
RPM measurement range: 0–99999 RPM
Voltage display resolution: 1mV
Current loading of test: 12mA
Maximum voltage for alarm port: 50VDC
Current drain for alarm port: <500mA
Log Files storage: 16Mbit (33 hours@2 seconds logging interval)
Sample logging time interval: 0.25 – 60 seconds
PC Connect: USB port
Weight: 28g
Dimensions (L X W X D): 85X40X13mm
Special features:
PowerLog 6S allows bidirectional current sensing, adopting 0.2 mΩ current sampling resistor with low insertion loss.

1 channel 0-60V voltage measurement. 6 channels cells voltage measurement (can not only measure 1-6S Li/ NiMH/NiCd/ Pb battery individual voltage, but also measure 6 channels 0.05-28V voltage).

4 channels temperature measurement (1 channel internal temperature measurement and 3 channels external temperature measurement).

Propeller RPM measurement, adopting non-contact optical sensing, user settable blade number.

Pulse signal measurement: frequency, period, pulse width, duty cycle. Applicable to remote control channel signal, measure, and monitor.

Steering gear driver output: manual and auto mode, auto mode is able to break in steering gear.

Small size with multiple functions, backlight 128*64 lattices LCD and Buzzer Tone Reminder; the interface can be operated smoothly.

It can be set Cells Voltage, Pack Voltage, Timer Over, Current, Power, Capacity, Temperature, RPM, Period and Pulse Alarm. What’s more, the extra alarm output can be linkage controlled by the users.

It has 8 sets default monitor alarm settings, which can be selected for different battery packs.

PowerLog 6S has been 100% calibrated before it enters to the market, at the same time, it supports the calibration by users themselves.

The logging interval can be set by users’ different needs. PowerLog 6S has a 16Mbit flash storage, which can log offline data in 33 hours @2 seconds logging interval.

Support upgrading the hardware program by USB port. Adopting HID protocol, dispense with installing Driver from PC, plug and play.

The PowerLog 6S also supports the “logview” software and can display, plot and analyze the charge and discharge data by it. (See detail information about logview in the following website: http://www.logview.info)
There is also a good utility to download and plot the data if you want something simpler and easier than LogView: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...&postcount=425
