Default Hyperion EOS 0720i NET3 AD or better?

Hi guys, I'm on the search for a good AC/DC charger (again) and am currently looking at the Hyperion EOS 0720i NET3 AD ($120+) but before I pull the trigger, I would like to see what are the majority here think?

Goal:
* Still not comfortable with the DC charger + 12V power supply
* Need 1 - 2 charging ports only
* Price range $50 - $150 (could stretch to $200 if needed be)
* To charge 7.4v 5000mAh NiMh & 2S 5000mAh LiPo (wont be using higher than 2S LiPo unless I go BL)

Is it true these chargers aren't reliable, i.e., power adapter failure, can't balance charge properly, etc...?
Venom Pro charger
Imax B6-AC
Thunder AC-6

That's what I was thinking...

By the way, to the OP, it's a 2S Lipo, not "2C".

The C-rating refers to the discharge rate (i.e. "punch" of the battery), or the charge rate (i.e. 1C on a 5000mAh pack = 5A, 2C = 10A, etc.....)

If you are only going to be charging 2S batteries, take a look at the Hyperion 0606i. I have that, very happy with it, and it is much cheaper than the 720. It can handle 4S, it just takes a longer time.

Thanks for sharing

Its either 720 or any of those chargers mentioned on first post if they are any good

Anyone got some input for those 3 chargers mentioned above?
