I have both.

I let my daughter use the Triton2 because of the simple easy display, I use the ICE (Actually have 2) for my LiPos. I like them because of the wealth of info they can display.

That's it in a nutshell for me.

The Triton2 has a backlight and I have ordered kits for the ICEs to add it.
The ICE gives way more info on your battery, the Triton2 gives less - this can be a Pro or Con to different people.

As far as charging batteries, I see very little, if any, difference in them.

I have 3 ice chargers, I like them cause you can setup 10 different batteries in the memory and then just scroll through and use the setup you need.

The Triton2 has 10 also, you just can't name them - they are known as 1 - 10.

Couple other things:
You can set the fan on the ICE to either AUTO or ON - The Trition2 is always in AUTO mode.

The Ice has 5 completion sounds, the Triton has like 9 I think.

The Ice as graphing capabilities, the Triton2 does not.

The Triton is smaller.

As for discharging, someone else will have to answer that one, I use a charger to charge not discharge even if it can.

I use an ICE & love it. If I buy another charger it will be this one.

Pretty much the same as the ICE, just better. Backlight, twin fan, 30A discharge, ICE is 10A.

I love the ice charger, its a good price, and performs all of the functions you would ever need. It has a 10A discharge rate (30 would be a little better but it gets the job done) and you can use it to power a comm lathe or break in motors. Its perfect.
