Default Which "Accessory" Charger

Currently in the market for something to run a lathe, break in motors, and possibly charge batteries in the future. Right now im looking at the Team Orion Advantage, LRP Pulsar Comp 2, APS Dyno Charge, Duratrax Ice. Looking for something that will be the best bang for the buck. Which has you guys had the best experiences with and what not, what's the best All-Around (Break-in/Charge/Discharge). Thanks!

I have the Ice. Bought it based on the great things that I had heard and the fact that the screen is huge. It will tell you alot of information about anything that you have just done.

Only downside to it that I have found so far is that it only has a 10 amp discharge feature. With all of the discharge equipment thats out there now aday's, that's not really a huge deal though.

Having owned all of the above mentioned chargers over the past year or so, (have the ICE right know) I would definetly reccommend the ICE.

The Orion chager is a pain to navigate the menus, the motor run in is suspect(newer version suppose to have this fixed), rather cheap looking and the price is rather high $180 or so. Newer version can charge Li-Pos.

The LRP 2, good charger, can't charge Li-Pos, also rather expensive $160 os so.

APS charger, good charger, can't charge Li-Pos, buttons are a pain to press. Motor run and checker very nice. No discharger, but most people use discharge trays anyways. Also rather expensive around $170 or so.

ICE, good charger, easy to navigate menu, easy to setup and use. Charges Li-Pos. 5 year warranty but no backlight. Really only complaint I have. Also very good price $130 or so.
