BTW, what charger/discharger design did you go with? I need to make one too.

Hopefully I didn't cause any damage.. guess well see.

I went with the cheapy dual ebay LED ones. Seems to charge fine (on it's 3rd? charge now?). I ended up buying 2 extras (and have quite a few other parts, fuses diodes fuseholders, etc.), if you need anything. Also have extra trip buttons if you need those. I'm sure I have other stuff as well.
