I've been using the Venom for almost a year now with great results, comes with adapters to charger pretty much any battery you can think of, charges and balances lipos, lots of features, only downside is it will only charge at 5A max...

I have 2 ICE chargers I run off one power supply. The ICE is a nice charger, I have had them for years. The one issue with the ICE I have had, is the raised buttons can develope contact problems once dust starts to get in the charger. You can take the side off and blow them out and hit them with electric motor spray and they'll come back. Other than that no problems.

Am I alone in thinking that the Hyperion 606i, Venom, Muchmore silent charger, Trinity I balence, and a few others are the same charger with slightly different programming??

I haven't tried all of those, but the ones I have, seemed really similar.
