    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Nice small charger.
    All settings adjustable.
    All battery types supported.
    Charging energy logged.
    Discharging/cycling circuit.
    User manual included.
    Cheap.

    Cons:

    Loose soldering in crocodile clip.
    Short in temperature sensor soldering.
    Power transistors not cooled properly.
    Information about pinout for 12V and temperature/"USB" missing.

    OtherThoughts:

    Possibly a Chinese copy of Bantam BC6, but I am not able to compare quality.
    "USB" communication is in fact serial, you will need a Serial to USB interface if your computer have no serial port.
    This PC software might work, I have not tested it yet:

    Bottomline:

    Now it is fun to charge batteries again!
