is it any different from the usual "imax" type of china chargers, apart from it being touch-controlled?

if you want a superb charger, get the LRP/Nosram Touch instead. I have it, and it's great!

Yeah, I don't know why they would create such a nice charger, and then only make it able to charge at 5 amps

It is common for AC chargers to only charge up to 5 amps. The Muchmore AC charger is the same way. It comes down to the DC supply they put into them and most are based on (or in the case of Muchmore use) a laptop type power brick.

For maximum performance and lifespan of your battery packs you shouldnt charge above 5 amps .
