I have just bought an Xtar WP2H - takes 2 batteries - nice and easy to use.

RE: ADVICE WANTED
There is now a version with 2.2 firmware. Gearbest's UK warehouse usually has them but are out of stock of them just now. Probably won't get more till after CNY. 

I'm very happy with it. Review of the v2.1 firmware version here.

RE: ADVICE WANTED
the Liito Kala Engineer chargers are also pretty good though personally I prefer the Opus.

I own quite a lot of chargers Smile

I think I can charge over 40 18650s at once if I find all the chargers.

I'd love a Schulze hobby charger but they are kinda spendy. And they've gone out of business Sad

Need to be a Cadex battery analyser instead.

They're really spendy!

RE: ADVICE WANTED
Plus the adapters to charge the cells you want. They aren't exactly cheap either...
