Yes, that is the one I see alot. I don't use it myself. I've done a bit more reading since I posted the links, and the Hobbico one, while it is only rated for charging up to 12 V packs, and the current limit is 2A, has the advantage of charging 2 batteries.

The Triton has outputs for only 1 battery, but can charge up to 24V for nicad or nimh, and will charge a 4 cell lipo. It has a current limit of 2.5 A.

Yesterday, I had accidently left my Tx on, and wanted to top up a Lipo. I was able to charge up my Tx battery and top up my Lipo at the same time. I was flying in 25 minutes with a fully charged TX. I only had an hour to spare,and the sun was shining (the monsoon finally ended). Without the dual output, I would have been at least 45 minutes charging, and wouldn't have been able to sneak in the flopping around in the sky I call flying!

It depends on what your needs are I guess.

How many cells is your Lipo receiver pack.

If it is 2 then your volt watch is of no use. It is designed for a 4 or 5 cell nicad pack. The voltages are all different.
