I have the MAHA C401FS. It works great. You can charge 1, 2, 3 or 4 batteries. They don't need to be in pairs. Each battery holder is on an independent circuit.

I use the Maha Powerex 2700 batteries. Spent a week on vacation, took over 200 shots, and reviewed all of them several times. They were still holding a charge when I got home.

Ordered the batteries and charger from Thomas Distributing on a Wednesday morning, the package was on my doorstep on Friday!

What do the experts think of the comparison between the C401FS and the C800S? Ignoring the 4-cell vs 8-cell issue, what is the effect of battery life by using the discharge function of the C800S vs the "FLEX negative pulse algorith" of the C401S. I guess the question comes down to: how do you evaluate Maha's statement that 'FLEX Pulse also makes traditional "battery conditioning & cycling" unnecessary as the pulse eliminates the memory effect just by charging the batteries'?
