I never said the Cellpro 10S wasn't a good charger. If it works for you use it. However, if you're going to compare chargers, then what's wrong with knowing the pros and cons of each charger? There is no such thing as perfect charger which is why so many of us own multiple charges to begin with.

Dude... I love my cellpro! Like you said... they all have pros and cons. That's why the TP-1010Cs are still around and the BC8DX is now here... I like them all and wouldn't trade in a single one! Keep the 10S and get ANOTHER when you have more cash!!!

The ElectriFly looks full featured but is only rated at 160W, so charging big will be a bit slow. For example the charger maxes out at 3.1A when charging 12S packs, 3.8A for 10S and 6.3A for 6S.

Can you power the hyperion duo 2 with the cell pro power supply? Thinking about moving to a hyperion duo and I hope I can use this power supply.

I just got my 106B+ today (it is the same charger but only for 6s). I have only charged one battery on it but it does seem to work. I will say it is much more tedious to use compared to my Cellpro 10S but I love the standard wiring and the fact that it has built-in balance plugs (only on the 106B+). The balance boards are very straight forward and allow for both serial and parallel charging for several cell counts.

Honestly it is likely as good as most of the big guys but then again it does cost about the same, so it should be.

Yeah, I just got my 106B+ as well. I bought it from progressiverc.com, having read that if you buy from asia and get a DOA unit, you have to mail it back and wait...

It looks pretty good. Once you get the hang of it, there are just a few more button presses than a Cellpro.

A few minor differences...
- the alarm is not as loud as cellpro (good, in a way) but it doesn't stop after a half-dozen beeps or so like cellpro (not as good).
- iCharger has "internal resistance" measurement, and that sure yields intresting results...
- I haven't done the parallel charge method yet. The iCharger uses the main cables, even on 3S. That is, it doesn't charge through the balance tap as does Cellpro. This is another connection to make, but it is key to enabling parallel charging.
- nice backlit display on the iCharger

Anyway, so far so good.
