Default TME Xtrema vs. cellpro 10s wattage capability

Going to get A123's for several models. I much prefer the charge rate and safety over lipos by a long shot. I would like to be able to charge a 4S pack at 10 amps so I can get going in 15 minutes. Can the Xtrema handle this? I wish they would put up a wattage maximum, I know the cellpro can handle this as well, however I wouldn't mind having wattmeter capability.

Better solution: buy a wattmeter and an Icharger 1010b+!

I have to admit that (1) FMA makes good products, but (2) man I really hate they way they treated me and, apparently others.

I got a good deal on tower for the TME Xtrema. Had it sitting in the shopping cart in my system cache for a while at $130 or so instead of what, $170, $180? (Inventory reduction sale) Finally decided to buy it, I also got a few other things and used a $20 coupon code so I couldn't turn down the deal. Besides, if I have a 3s or 6s pack, I can direct charge it off a 12v car battery and monitor the charge through the wattmeter. Kinda ironic too use the charger that way, really.
