The SkyRC MC3000 is probably a better choice. Price is about the same IIRC, but the MC3000 is far more capable.

There is a comprehensive review link in my signature which is worth reading. Also, read HKJs technical review of this charger and alternatives.

The SkyRC is very capable but more aimed at hobbyists. The XTAR Dragon is more consumer orientated and simplistic. The Dragon is currently my charger of choice.

I have this charger as well and wrote a review for it, the percents are all wrong, but it does charge perfectly well and can do 1A for all slots and 2A for two slots.
I would not buy it because the cost is more then the features you get in return.

"It is critical that there is a credible academic source for the growing and important discipline of alternative facts. This field of study will just keep winning, and we knew that all the best people would want to be on board. There is a real risk in the world today that people might be getting their information about science from actual scientists"

gizmo’s don’t faze me (as a matter of fact the less the better) and 2A would just

be a bonus .
