Sean, your one have just arrived today. I have tested mine and I am impressed. Screen is clear, does everything it say it would. Best thing other than the individual charging would be the individual charge time, temp, voltage and capacity. I am loving it, and this is not bias.

I've been testing mine now and do have one problem. When trying to charge from the external output while charging in the tray, I get a "powersupply out of range" error. Guess it's my powersupply that dosent deliver enough amps. Wierd, cause it's a +20 amps supply.

I guess your batterie-voltage is to low.
After charging it for 5sec. on my overloader it was no problem anymore.

Found the problem. It wasn't the charger, it was indeed my power supply. I'm using a modified PC supply. After hooking up the second pack using the external output, the voltage would drop below 12 volts which resulted in the "powersupply out of range" error.

Discovered another thing today. While charging my IB4200, I forgot to change the chrage setting from GP3700 or IB4200. Dunno if that was the cause, but cell #1 started cooking bad. It litteraly spewed it's guts out on the + side, at the end of the charge. Disconected it immidiately and checked the charger. No harm done. Checked the battery, looked fried, but just to be sure, I ran a voltmeter through it. Still 1,51 volt, about the same as the other 5 cells, so no harm done. However, the pack itself will be closely watched next time I charge it up.
Dunno if the wrong setting did this or the cell is just about dead. Looking at the voltage, it's not.

Will test further.
