In my opinion, the ICE is the best charger for your dollar currently on the market.

from what i know of the 2 i believe the triton you can charge up to 10 batteries. the ice can do do motor breakins and is slightly faster charging lipo's. i would choose the ice. and it looks better believe most of the people who use triton are flyers.

it depends, are you doing all electric racing or...

ice:
http://www.duratrax.com/caraccys/dtxp4170.html

triton:
http://www.towerhobbies.com/products.../gpmm3150.html


ice goes up to 8amps on charging. triton can only go up to 5amps
the triton can do 6V, 12V and 24V lead-acid batteries. the ice can do motor run ins, discharge etc.. blah blah..

cant go wrong with either, but if your a electric car racer, stick with the ice.
