I like the idea of the discharge board-but I don't think it'll work in practice. Definatley won't work on saddle packs, and you would have to solder the exact same type of batt bars on perfectly flat to the cell to make sure that all the cell ends line up.
The charger looks great too...

Steve,

I think it's a great looking charger! I'm glad you posted it because I have been looking for a charger to do 10 cells for a transmitter pack for my JR R1. Can't wait to see it in person.

Its a clone of this discharge board.

Apex has been making it for awhile. Most ppl where I come from tend to shun away from Apex products though, whether its the icky colour or their quality, I do not know.

If its identical to the Apex model, then you won't have to make sure everything lines up flat coz the contacts are tensioned by springs so they will still press down on any unevenly soldered surface.

I know what you mean. You don't see many Apex products in use. I have thier Zero charger and have been happy with the performance so maybe it is the color.
