I've had this for some time and I use it a lot, mainly for niMh and lithium batteries. This seems to be the same as the Accucell charger and I use the instruction manual for that with this one.
It's very handy for cycling cells that haven't been used for a while or trying to revitalise old NiCds. The discharge function is also very useful for measuring the capacity of cells.
There are a few.
The buzzer is VERY LOUD. It can be turned off but is usefule for indicating a problem as well as indicating the end of a cycle.
Be very careful with the settings for discharge. Ithink it can only handle 5 watts of discharge. There have been various reports of transistors burning out. This model is not fitted with a fan unlike some variants of it.
Since I bought this Dealextreme have a number of other models which might be worth comparing, especially since they are cheaper.
The ability to capture the data on a computer might have been useful too.
A very good hobby charger but do look at the more recent introductions on Dealextreme before buying.
