I've use this item many times back in the 90s where I worked. I also used one that had a digital read-out. I would use these things to condition multiple different types of batteries. I had regular correspondence with the manufacturer to make many custom pockets. I had a custom pocket for all the devices we rented in the 90s...including the Marco/Envoy and all the popular cellphones of the time (flip phone, NEC and OKI)
But that was a different time and those days are long ago. And I don't even know i the company I worked for at the time even still has that device anylonger!

Yes, yes, YES!  That's the kind of thing I mean.  I'm drooling as I look at

And Sonny, I should have known that if it existed, you'd have it.  :-)
