I have two older chargers that basically have a 15 minute timer on them. There's a mathematical formula you can use to figure out what the charge time should be for each pack, but I just like to set it and forget it (well except for keeping an eye on the pack temps to make sure all is well.)

The Piranha Digital Peak Charger has a very nice digital display that shows you the Voltage Peak, the capacitance or mAh of the charge, and the time it took to charge it. It's even angled, and I find it readable from my chair while it charges on the floor.

It allows you to program up to 10 different battery packs by setting the type of pack (NiHM or NiCad), the mAh, and the peak delta (a value that determines how sensitive the peak detection is).

Basically, you program in your batteries and let this thing go. Once the pack is done fast charging it will go into trickle charge (which you can set to 0, 100 or 200 mA).

It's a great charger, but there are some issues I noted. The charger has spring clip type connectors, and comes with an adapter for a Tamiya type connector. However, the wires that go into the spring clip come out real easy. Being able to create your own connectors is nice (if your battery packs use Traxxas or Dean's Connectors for instance) to eliminate the need of an adapter, but the spring clips are just not secure enough.

It also beeps when done charging (plays 1 of 5 short beep melodies), it's pretty loud and noticeable. Good for when you aren't in the room, bad for when people are trying to sleep. You can stop the repetition of the beep melody early (it plays the melody about 5 times) by holding the E button for a second or two.
