I just bought a second one of the original model for $50 from Pale Rider Wednesday. I had been wanting another one but just couldn't let go of another $90 yet. Saw his for $50 and had to do it.

This charger has shown up already under another label from DN-Power
http://www.dn-power.com/ It is being sold by XUS Hobby http://www.xushobby.com/servlet/StoreFront

I have this one under test. It works as advertised but it doesn't have near the features of the FMA CellPro and is limited to 2 amps charge, no charge input indication, no "fuel tank" indication.

DN-Power made the original Common Sense R/C balancing charger.

Oh, there you go again! I just bought a second one of the old design. I guess for $50 delivered it was still a good deal. Next time I'll PM you first.
Thanks

I still have an original Kokam charger. I still think its one of the best, since I've had no problems yet, but still would like more than the 1.5A charge. Somehow, I've been able to block that

I'm interested in this charger but the input power requirements are not listed. Is it 12v, 120 vac, both, other? More detailed specs would be a good thing, as would warranty information.
