IDX Pro Series 7.4V batteries and charger

Has anyone used the IDX Pro Series 7.4V batteries and charger?

The stuff looks good and I talked with one of the CS reps about them. IDX has Panasonic compatible batteries and a 2 place simultaneous fast charger. They claim to have worked with Panasonic on this and there are a couple of different batts for different camera models. What’s nice is the Empty/Full LED and power level LEDs.

Here’s the page: IDX 7.4V Battery System

There’s one battery for the HVX200, and one for the HMC 150 & 70.

I priced the Panasonic AG-B25 Charger/AC adapter and it’s $175! The IDX dual charger is $120 @ B&H. The IDX SL-VBD50 batt is 5000mAh, as opposed to the Panasonic’s 5400mAh. I’m willing to lose 400MAH of power for all the indicators and a $77.50 price tag. I like that the charger is a two place simultaneous charger. That way, I can run my little camera on AC power, with the factory adapter and still be able to charge batteries for lights, recorders, P2Gear, etc. on the IDX.

Looks pretty nice. According to a reviewer, they liked the IDX 2 place charger better than the Dolgin, because the Dolgin is more expensive and also doesn’t go all the way to 100% charge and I think it isn’t quite a true simultaneous charger.

I think I may pull the trigger on one of the batteries and the chager, but I'd like to hear from anyone that's used the IDX system.

Thanks!
