i have one and its a great charger, never had a issue with it. it has three charge modes, temp charge, (battery matchers now are stating at the best temp is around 135-150 depending on which one you listen to. so you can temp charge to that temp. you can also peak charge and for ni-cd, you can pluse charge, you can also set max milli amp input, which i have been toying with and its working great so far, i.e. set it for 2000 ma, charge at 6 amps, the charger will stop charging at 2000ma input and then i reset it for 4000, crank up the amps to 7 and set the temp for 150. not sure how this effects battery life but my batteries have more punch then ever.

I have one and it works great. I maily needed it since I need to pack light (my car is a miata=very little trunk space). Plus the fact that my Integy and LRP chargers fried. This one has held up so far. Only complaint is that it won't charge a completely dead battery. It has to have something in the battery to start charging. This is something I gripe about because I dead short my batteries. But I use my MMS to bump up the votage for a second or two. After that, the charger will read the battery and charge normally. Only other gripe is it makes no sounds. So you have to monitor the screen to see if the battery is done or not. Anyways, I'm still running mine. And will keep using it til someone actually builds an AC/DC charger with motor run-in and 20-30 amp discharge.
