How do these compare to the ichargers? $199 US for a 7amp charger seems like a lot.

Well I tried for 6 months to get one of these chargers. Talked with the US distributor several times by e-mail. Then he stopped responding to the e-mails . After a few months trying to get a response I gave up. If I could not get a response then if I needed service or help -there would not be any. So I got something I said I would not get -LRP touch charger. You can get ahold of Associcated very easy and there are plently of them around. If I were you I'd get the LRP.

Congrats you prob have asked about US distributor a hundred times. it is clear there is not one.
i got mine in one week.

Ohh...good luck getting anything serviced by LRP...you will be waiting months before something gets back
my last warranty with LRP took 3 months and then they sent it to the wrong address.

Yes there was the Canadian guy. He stopped answering "any" e-mails back in June. Even had my hobbyshop (listed below) try with no results. As for service never had a problem with sevice at Assoicated.

The charger looks very cool.
And I really like the yellow screen.
But it only charges up to 15 amps.

Why do these chargers only discharge at 7 amps?
The lipo batteries IR is so much better discharging at 30 amps.
