the answer to that question depends on what features you want in a charger
ac, dc,or ac/dc
# cells it will charge
max amps it will charge at
cycle packs
discharge packs and at what amps
motor run feature
size of charger

i have a turbo 35 and two millenium pro's

i use the turbo 35 at home for cycling packs, running my lathe, running my brush cutter, and breaking in motors,

i bring the pro's to races to charge packs there, but i think im going to sell them and stay exclusively with the turbo 35!

i know its an expensive charger for most racers but you will absolutely never ever ever regret getting a turbo 35! its the best rc investment you will ever make!!

and the cool thing about a turbo 35 is that they hold there value so well if you ever do decide to sell it.

I have recently purchased an Integy 16X7 Pro.

This is a great charger!
It charges, discharges and cycles.
You can do from 1 to 8 cells from 50mAH to 6000mAH
charges up to 6.5 amps, discharges up to 20 amps.
You can set how many times you want ti to cycle, the
wait time after the charge, as well as the wait time after discharge.
You can configure the delta peak detection, etc.

It is also AC/DC which is a real bonus (no p/s required).

It is a bit noisy, but that can be fixed.

Great charger for the money!

I have a two chargers, Robitronic pro 2000+ and LRP Pulsar competition and im very pleased about them. They boths are a lot of features to me. Especially it`s helpful to use two chargers in sametime when i use my both cars in trainig.

The KO 213 MH is a great charger. It makes my 3000HVs have more punch than the Pitbull does. Definitely go for it if you can

Default Battery trays

I assume that these chargers would have no connection problems with the clips on RC cells, unless there's bad soldering or something like that.

However, have you ever tried them on AA and AAA cells? I was told that for AA and AAA cells, the battery trays are important. A poor quality tray (with bad springs and connections) will cause false peak if used on these chargers.

Are there any comments from owners?

Can you actually gain / measure better battery performance, while using the GMVIS charging method? Or is it just marketing bla bla?

The Vis Charge Mode is designed for Ni-Cd batterys, it charges the battery but it also at certain points in the charge sends a burst of negative charge into the battery to lower IR during the charge!
