This is the TrakPower VR-1 DC Dual Channel Racing Charger. The TrakPower VR-1 Dual Racing Charger is a high performance, fully programmable and computerized battery charger designed for the electric racer. Dual outputs with built-in balancing provide the ability to charge two batteries simultaneously and eliminate the need for a separate in-line balancer. A large, tilt-able, reversed backlit graphic LCD makes it easy to view at any angle, indoors or out. Capable of charging all chemistry types in the R/C industry, the VR-1 can handle 20A (up to 6S) on Channel 1 and 6A (up to 4S) on Channel 2, the VR-1 quickly and safely charges batteries so you can get back on the track!

Great charger when purchased with the docking power supply (another 100 bucks) and you wish to charge only one battery at a time. Rather expensive charger that allows full capabilities on one side and limited power and capability for the second side.

I have owned one for about 2 months now, it has a very nice appearance, looks great with the trakpower power supply as well, but is not worth it to me. It only has the full capabilities on channel one. It's okay if you only run one car and have 2 batteries, but if you are running two classes or more, and need to be able to charge two at a time, you are limited to 6 amps on channel 2. There is basically nothing on channel two, you can change about 5 settings and hit charge, that's about it. Channel one is great though, up to 20 amps if needed. For a few bucks cheaper you can get the ProTek dual charger with 20 amps on both channels, that is what I will most likely get next.
