    I'm not against them and am still in two minds about having one, but am wondering if there's something of a fad about them and their ultimate usefulness. They may be a desirable item but I can't see them as an essential item, which I would need to in order to spend over a hundred pounds on one.

    Like mot's, the debate about O2 testing and so on, all they show is that at the time of testing, cells were either in or outside of required parameters, with no subsequent guarantee of performance of the cell under use. I think that for some, an acceptable reading on the cell checker may give a false sense of security.
    Or if your using AP cells a great way of making sure you get them replaced within their warranty rather than waiting for them to die on a dive............................

    what, the one you were selling a few weeks ago? if you go back to that daft idea give me a shout and I'll take the deep check off your hands.
