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.
Other:
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!
