Default Best deal to charge 2, 6 cell lipos, ac/dc

I've been saying I was going to buy a new battery charger for 5 years or so. I typically don't charge anything bigger than 6 cell 5000 LIPO batteries. But I can only do one at a time on a slower charger now.. I would like to be able to do two 6 cells at once while plugged into an outlet. I am not looking to slam them super fast , however if the charger was capable of that it wouldn't be a problem.

Is there any charger out there now that is really a good buy for these requirements? It would be nice if it had a good reputation and wasn't known to be a hit or miss product..

I love my X2 AC Plus for charging 2, and 3 cell packs, and having the insight of the internal resistance of a pack. For getting 6 cell charge times down to an hour or so, I think you would need the X2 High Power model for best fitment of your needs possibly.
