Just a follow-up on my experience with them so far. These are definitely the best chargers I have ever had. I found the programming very intuitive and had them up and running with only a couple minutes of playing around with the programming. It is great have this much power on tap in such a small unit and the extra usb charging output is an amazing little bonus I wasn't even aware of before getting them. I'll post some good pics of them mounted up later tonight but here is a quick cell shot of them in my case.

A side note about the included balance boards... I know some people were concerned about the boards only accepting up to 6s. 7s and 8s packs can simply be plugged into the balance board cable (bypassing the board) so you can charge 7 and 8s packs with what is included with the charger. I was worried briefly when I first got the charger, but a quick conversation with David at Progressive RC cleared that right up.

I figured I could charge 8S by directly plugging it into the charger, wasn't sure about 7S since I don't currently have a 7S pack. I tried calling them (once) but didn't get a hold of them. One suggestion to Dave would be to include a note on how 7S and 8S packs are hooked up.

One feature I really like with this charger is the "Fast Balance" option where it'll balance charge but quicker. Assuming it doesn't have as a fine, super balanced state but that's fine for field charging or just want to go fly charge. do the super balancing mode for storage or as a maintenance item. This speeds up charge time for me.
