    No... but I've been pretty interested, too.
    I wouldn't imagine there'd be much that can go wrong, really, since all the charging intelligence is in the battery itself. So it's not like the Chinese are trying to copy anything critical... just supplying power.

    The only thing I would worry about is, the more batteries you hook up to the strip, the less amperage each one is going to be able to draw, and the slower they're all going to charge. Is there a point where the amps being fed an individual battery are low enough where it could do damage to the batteries circuitry. And at what point is charging one battery at full amps, removing, and plugging another battery in, actually faster than trying to charge multiple batteries simultaneously on reduced amps.
