Default Common Sense Digital Balancing Charger

Has anyone tried one of these balancing/chargers?

Common Sense Digital Balancing Charger

I got to see one this weekend and it is very interesting. Chargers each cell individually.

Thanks,

Yes that is what I thought. But it evidently charges each cell individually. Curious as to the benefit of charging each cell individually?

Later,

W'eve been selling these at the shop for awhile now. They work awesome for most everything mini drivers and plane guys could ever use them for! 2 amps is good for everything up to about 2500mah lipos. The charger also includes all the adapters for every companies packs as well.

The benefit of charging each cell individually is basically the same benefit as a balancing the cells. It ensures all the cells end up at the same fully charged voltage. This charge also gives the advantage of displaying each cell's voltage individually so you know how well the cells stay balanced.
