Default Supernova Competition Charger

I was just wondering if anybody has a Supernova Competition Charger and if you like it? I have a Ice charger and was wondering how much better is it than it. Also, where can you buy one of these at? I found them on one website for $339 and I didn't know if it is worth the extra $200 to buy one of the Supernova's over the Ice charger.

I've used an SJ SuperNova charger for about 6 months, and it is one of the most convenient and best chargers on the market. You may already know this, but it has all the features of the ICE, plus 20amp max discharge, a better (magnetic) temp probe, and blue backlighting. Has been 100% reliable and temp cutoff is very accurate. Only gripe is that the charging leads are way too short.

If you shop around, these can be had for ~ 240usd shipped.

Got it and love it. Has a very good backlight, handles 4s LiPo's better than the ice and has a 20A discharge rate. Have not had any problems with it over the last couple of months.
Hope that helps.

They cost around AUD$260-$300 (depends on the shop) here in Australia. That equates to under US$200 + shipping. Try www.rchobbies.com.au, http://www.perthrc.com.au and http://www.radiomodels.com.au

Here's a few more shops: http://www.radiocontrol.com.au/rc10.html

Not sure if they can ship overseas. Goodluck
