Default KO Propo BX213 or GM Commander ?


Can somebody tell me if the KO Propo BX213 is a good charger ? I am considering this and the GM Commander, however I was told that the GM has got bugs and won't charge correctly, is that right ?

Was just told also that there is a new CDC charger made by Eagle Model - any comments ?

Pls advise. Thanks

I haven't herd anything about bugs in Gm

Go with the Commander. It cycles, charges, discharges, matches, two packs at once...good buy for a e-maxx, and also breaks in motors to cool huh

You are comparing two different type of chargers. One is a charger only and the other can do cycle, discharge, charge.

If you want to bring a lighter charger (charge only), you should consider 213 or Pitbull. But If don't mind the weight, you can get Commander or Yokomo BMS charger (old version of Commander).

For the track, I brought my Pitbull and 213 along with a Equilizing Tray. At home, I will use my Turbo 35 and BMS to cycle my battery because they are very reliable and consistant.

I do not know about the kyosho charger but I believe GM will cost about at least 3 times as much.

Which one do you need, that would be the one to get.

I think people saying about the bug on GM is because they have no user replacable fuse and I'm also wondering if the have fuse inside.
