I used to have the EOS 0610 i Net but sold it to get a 0610i Duo. I did so beacuse I wanted a single charger that can do two batteries at once.

The pair of 0610i Net's do have some advantages though:

1] Each will charge up to 250watts where the Duo is only 180watts per channel. Not an issue with 1/8th electric though as 180watts is more than enough.
2] If one charger fails you still have a charger. If the Duo fails you can't charge anything.
3] You can only bring one charger if you don't need both.

Negatives:

1] Two i Nets cost more than one Duo.
2] Takes up more space in the pit box.

Yea, I see what you guys are saying, I ws going to get the 2 610's and not the duo ubtill someone made me a deal on one.

Tony the reason I was looking at the option of getting two was because the site suggested had a sale and were selling the 610's for 149.99 and most places the duo is 298-300 so it would have been same price. I just did not know how to do the math to figure out the amps.

Two 610s used to cost more than a DUO. Right now, at least from these guys, two 610s cost the same.....
