Looks like a great little charger for single battery packs. Not sure why they don't advertise this but these Hitec chargers have the ability to check the IR values of the battery, both individual cells and total cells. I have a X2 AC Black Edition that I didnt know had this feature and it has been very useful on determining when to retire old battery packs.

Definitely will pick this one up, too
