From the Hobbyking Website:

The ISDT BG-8S Smart Battery Checker is a new style of multipurpose battery checker. It is specifically designed for hobbyists of Remote Control products. It comes lots of great features to help check your batteries, receiver signals and even has a USB output that allows you to charge your phone or other devices. The Battery Checker has a 2.4 320x240 display that can easily be seen in sunlight and has an easy to use menu system to show all functions and data.

There is an advanced balancing algorithm to ensure every cell is well balanced. Most batteries types are supported such as LiHv, LiPo, Lilon, LiFe, NiMh/Cd as well as checking your BEC output. If you want to charge up your USB devices (phones, tablets, etc) you only have to connect up a battery to the XT-60 and the BG-8S can become your power bank for mobile devices. The BG-8S also tests receiver signals and currently supports multiple protocol analysis including PWM, PPM&S.BUS with more to come.

One of these is the solution to solar charging lipo batteries. When you flow energy into your lipos directly off a solar panel they get out of balance after a while and something like this can square that away for you.
