This charger is exactly what I was looking for. All I use it for is charging my mSRX batteries and it does a great job at it. I bought this for use while on deployment because having a DC only charger AND a power supply is just too much to bring around. This charger is a little bigger than your standard paperback book and has an integrated "balance board" on its right side along with the pos and neg banana ports that the charge leads plug in to. The left side has the 3 prong AC port and a (I think 5mm) DC plug (it has a lead that plugs into the DC port and has alligator clips on the other end for running off a deep cycle batt). One thing it doesn't have is a power switch so once you plug it in it comes on and stays on until you lose power. It isn't too bad but if you have it plugged into a battery you will have to disconnect one of the alligator leads when it isn't in use. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because the ac cord that came with it was a little messed up in that the middle female part for ground was a tad too small so it wouldnt fit onto the charger. Its the style that is used on some laptop power supplies so I was able to use my laptop's cord. All in all, its a great "beginner" charger in the fact that it is really easy to use and its compact so if you are a travelling business person that likes to bring an mSRX everywhere you stay and want to charge more than one battery at a decent charge rate, this is a great choice. A note though, it does NOT come with a micro battery port so you will need to buy a deans to micro lead or do what I did and buy a JST to mirco parallel charging board and charge to your heart's content!
