Default Integy 16X5BL

I would like opinions of this charger from owners and what the VESC function is like, I heard the charger stops charging several times a minute, is this right?

One thing I dont like about this charger, is that the trickle charge cant be disabled. Not good for NiMh... Well, you can just disconnect the battery, as soon as it's charged... Personally, I tend to forget such thing.

I have the CDC v6.0B, which also got the VSEC thing. It's true, it pauses for 5 seconds each minute. The good thing about VESC is that it never false peaks. The not so good thing, is that it tend to puches the batts pretty far, so even with the delta peak cut off as low as possible, the batts usually peaks at 50-60 degrees celsius, depending on surrounding temperature. So it might shorten battery life time, however, I havnt seen problems myself after a year of use. A good thing about the VESC, is that the batts are very punchys, nice for stock

Other than that, I must say that this is a charger with lots of features for the money.

But maybe you shold wait for the new Integy charger. Or check out the Duratrax Ice. Many, many features and 130$ including a temp probe. Theres also the Team Much More charger, with many good features.
