Right now I'm liking mine though it was a rocky start. The screen bugged out on me so I had to send it back. Very good service for the return and they upgraded me to the 6.2 software. It does pretty much anything I need it to including a 30amp discharge and dyno. It's also AC/DC so you don't need a power supply.

A while back i had a pair of 16x9, they worked fine when they worked, but i had a few problems with them (screen went out, stoped operating due to internal power supply crapping out, and they were never acurate with each other (calibration was off). I do have to say that most of the Integy chargers are very simple to use.

Since then tho, they seem to have gotten much better (i have used a few other peoples), and in terms of bang for your buck, you can't go wrong.

I had one...then returned it after a week.
lots of features..but no memory slots like my 16x5v6b

I'm waiting for the 16x908 (CDC 7.0) to come out... any week now..

the features are nice, the quality is terrible. my 16x8v6 is on its way back for the second time. it pulses the motor run (not as intended), and it won't discharge. we'll see how it comes back. assuming it works as new (which it never did), i'll be selling it for a very attractive price. other than missing their sweet tools, i would not be sad if integy left the market.

i try to save money here and there, but doing it on integy chargers is not the way to go. suck it up and buy the gfx. used ones are comparable in price.

At first, mine would not fully charge my packs. I contacted Integy, and they sent me the firmware update (to v6.2) for free. The chargers been working
great since then (had it about 3 months now). It's a charger, discharger, dyno and power supply in a very small package. I'm very happy so far .

Same here (except for the not charging packs fully). However, I did sell mine cause it was too big for my pit box. I now have an Orion Advantage.

I've been using this charger for almost a year now. Aftering putting in the 6.2 software, the unit has been running perfect. The new 3 step charging with temperature adjustment is a big plus, I cycle all my batteries at 30A when I'm not racing for several weeks and the unit cutoff at 5.4V.
