New Hyperion EOS SENTRY Battery Checker available July 12th, 2010.

The only source I can find for it is from a HK distributor – $23.95 + $5.00 shipping:  http://www.windrider.com.hk/product.asp?id=195#

What is significant about this battery checker is that is checks most of the common battery types:

Lilon (Lithium Ion – 2s – 7s)
LiPo (Lithium Polymer – 2s – 7s)
LiFe (Lithium Ferrite (A123) – 2s – 7s)
NiCd (Nickle Cadmium – 4 – 7 cells)
NiMH (Nickle Metal Hydrate – 4 – 7 cells)

The EOS Sentry displays the pack voltage and a percentage estimate of the battery capacity as well as cell balance.
