I would say a good entry level charger or bench charger for weekly race prep.

I have the maha 8 cell charger which does 2 sets fine. 3 would be great though. I typically cycle them with my maha 4 cell charger every couple months. Admittedly I don't take very good care of my batteries.

Cool find Ray. But like KWT said, mixed reviews kinda worry me. But sometimes I take them with a grain of salt. But I'm curious. Especially charging three sets of batteries at once. And from what can gather so far unlike the maha 8 cell charger it can give you more detail on individual cell activity then the maha. The hi tec charger is neat but not wildly different from the maha charger. If the hi tec charger could do internal resistance, it would be worth the money. But knowing me I'll end up buying one anyway. :D
