CB86 Balance charger: Charge up to 8x 1-6S lipos with 6A at the same [email protected]$

Hi there,
I ordered the BC168 balance charger to get the fastest and best balanced lipos I can get. (Used the imax before but I didn't like it charging and then balancing such a long time unable to charge all the cells equally.)

I ordered this charger:


But then I found this one:


Manual CB86

This one seems to charge through the balance plug like the BC168. But connecting up to 8 lipos isn't a problem.
The charger can charge one batterys one after another or all in parallel.

This way you can connect all your batteries at once, lay back and wait until the charger is finished.

It's just that I don't know what to make of the data sheets:

BC168 vs CB86
8A vs 6A (but seems to stay cool all the time at 97% efficiancy)
0,001V vs 0,006V charging precision
150mAh vs 70mAh charger power usage
lcd vs LCD 192 x 64 resolution
get warm vs stays cool even while charging at 6A because of 97% efficiency

Which seems better?

What do you guys think about that?
Would you recommend me getting the CB86 over the BC168?
