Yes that does seem to be a nice charger - but you need the temp-probe for the step charger ability which it may do the best

Hey Rich,
I replaced my 16x5v6 with two ices and have no regrets. You would only need a separate discharger as the Ice only does 10amps discharge.

Default Trickle Charge?

Sorry if my post offended anyone.

I AM looking for input on whether anyone uses trickle charge.

Regarding charging one vs two batteries,
I race in two and sometimes three classes, a single charger could never keep up. And certainly if you want to get a lot of track time for practice, being able to charge two batteries is a great asset.
