What kind of information that you need to know.

This is the list of chargers from Yokomo

Yokomo BMS (similar to GM-VIS commander, charge, discharge, cycle)
Yokomo BCS Double (just 2 chargers in one case, no discharge)
Yokomo BCS-S (Smaller version of the charger, no discharge capability) It uses similar case of their motor checker

There are three charge modes:

Yokomo Charge
Peak Charge
Temp. Charge

And BMS has dual ventilation fans which provide excellent cooling effect. I used it to recycle my packs and it never got heat, not even warm.

I think its charging rate ranges from 0.2-9.9A. Discharge rate ranges from 0.2-20A. Threshold adjustable (can't remember the range). 12V DC supply

Hope it helps.

I prefer LRP instead because they have lifetime warranty. I used to have the BCS double and BMS charger.

BMS charger is just too heavy.
BCS Double have some minor problem
BCS-S (Don't want to try it anymore)

What does the BMS cost at most US hobby shops? I'm not looking to buy a charger right now, just curious is all.

USD250 should be good figure.

Anyway, like other people said, BCS has a minor problem such as hang, error, etc. I personally think that either BCS/BMS will shorten your battery lifes. But hey, you will never know until you experience with one.
