Once you figure out the menu system, it is fairly straightforward. Reminds me of my Triton a bit.

I like the ThunderPower 610-c. Charges every type of battery. Charge limit up to 10 amps for quick charging. Discharges, cycle and comes with balancer. It's very small and only costs $130.

I really like the Onyx 230 and use a Common Sense balancer with it. If I had to get another it might be the Hyperion EOS0606i AC/DC Balance Charger. I've heard some good things about it.

I've heard nothing but good things about the iChargers being sold over at HobbyCity.

There are two models:
1010B, 10s, 300w, 10A

106B Plus, 6s, 250w, 10A

Both are multi-chemistry, the 1010B+ is obviously the more powerful model. But the thing to consider here is that both chargers have a really high wattage rating which means you can actually charge big high voltage packs at 1C whereas you won't be able to do that with a low wattage charger such as the accucel-6 or that Thunder Power listed above.

Here's a really long thread about both chargers over at RCGroups. As you can see from the thread the manufacturer/devs of the charger are very involved with the customer base and are regularly making changes to the firmware that have been suggested by the people in that thread.

I'm working on a 1/8 project that will use a 5000mah 6s pack, I'll probably spring for the 106B Plus charger.

That 2nd link looks nice.
