It has a great look and feel to it.
The screen has very good resolution too. " Not like the other regular charger's with this format" This screen for some reason looks clearer and brighter.
THIS CHARGER HAS AN INTERNAL RESISTANCE TESTER!!! YES!! It can test lipo battery's internal resistance. Each cell individually or the battery as a whole! That is a very good feature to have for testing and knowing the quality of your lipo battery. That feature alone is worth buying it let alone it charges every battery imaginable.
If you want a good looking charger and want that added feature of testing internal resistance this is a great charger to have!!
This charger killed many batteries. It's suits only for nimh batteries.
