For a charger an analog or digital (I could care less) display of volts/amps is nice. I like haveing a fairly wide range of voltages and a trim for finish.

Meaning something like my schumacher multivolt except I would like a simple cutoff so it doesn't severely overcharge. Even better would be 2 stage like my old K&W BC-20 where I can set the amps and the finishing charge voltage trim.
(I loved my K&W BC-20)

Output current isn't extremely important (but control of it might be since I opportunity charge and 10amp outlets need to be ramped down), but overcharge protection is (since I can't design that well myself)

In other words, the thing should shut down once the batteries are fully charged unless equalize or some other setting is chosen.

Cheers
Ryan
