Fast charger for HVX170 batteries

I have 4 Panasonic batteries (the big ones) for my HVX172. The default Panny charger takes quite a while to charge the battery. Anybody knows of a 3rd party charger that is faster and shows battery status and operates on 240V 50Hz supply? Thanks.

Check out Dolgin Engineering. They have quad chargers with worldwide voltage. The charger can simultaneously charge for batteries in 3.5 hours. I haven't seen Li Ion chargers that can do a one hour fast charge, unlike NiCad or NiMh.

I have two Dolgin quad chargers and can't speak highly enough about them. I get home from a long day shooting, pop eight batteries in and they're charged in no time.

Plus even if they're not charged, I can look at the status screen and grab the one that has the highest charge.
