well i have the intigy and want to try a ice charger. The intigy charger is great theres not much to say about it except its a good charger. The ice however is a great charger at a great price but you got to buy a power supply so your at about 180 for a done setup for the ice it may cost a little more but not much. I think you should go for the ice i really think its a nice charger however the only down side of the ice is its discharging the intigy will have 30 amp discharge.

I bought my first ICE about 9 months ago. I liked it so much that I bought a second one so I could run my lathe, break-in my motor, and charge a second pack while running the first one.

No complaints at all, and for the price, I don't think you can beat it.

I don't know anything about the other charger, though...

I have the 16x8v6, Its a great charger, but if I had to buy a new charger today the Ice has my vote! It has all the right functions at an incredible price! All the local hot shots around here use it. Its only fault is that its not backlite, but guys are buying some sort of neon plate/inverter and modifying it to backlite, you can read all about it on the Ice thread.

Ultraspeed84 why don't you like your integy v2 dyno charger? Why do you think the ice is better?

I have the Ice and have yet to be disappointed with it. Best bang for the buck by far.

Go with the ICE. I like it better than my more expensive LRP charger.

I have run as many as 2 Ices, and a CE Turbo 30 on one CE power supply (23 amp). I also had two of the integy 0-30's hooked up. It was probably a little bit overkill, but it still pulled it no problem. If you get a good quality power supply, like a competition electronics or equivalent, you should be able to run two without a problem.

That depends on a couple factors:

- At how many amps do you charge your batteries?
- How many amps can your charger supply?

I charge my batteries at 5.0A and I run my two chargers and an Integy Zero Thirty off a Rivergate 15A power supply.

The idea is that the total amp draw should be less than the what the power supply can put out.

If you want a good power supply at a decent price, try the Dynamite 12A power supply from Horizon Hobby. You really don't want to draw the full 12A from it, but if you charge your batteries at 5.0A, it would do the job. Otherwise, I'd recommend the Rivergate. It's a little more bulky but it's good clean power.
