Do you already have a charger? If so, do you run it AC or DC or have one that is capable of both? Do you prefer an AC/DC charger or do you already have a power supply capable of running a new charger?

If you want AC/DC then get the Hyperion 0606i.

If you already have a power supply then get the Hyperion 0610i NET.

for 150, u could score a used ice and new 230 (both new, bout 175), and have a tandem that does all batts, has ac/dc avail (230), have a backup charger, and cover all ur bases.

thats what i have, works just fine. eased up on the ICE and let the 230 do the job for fun classes like tamiya spec and f1, even 2wd mod buggy since its just fun club racing in my case. good luck

+1 for the 610c. Get this especially if you need to charge large packs.
