Default need help picking a new charger

When I bought my first charger...I wasn't sure if I wanted to get into r/c cars. Well, now I do and I want to get a charger that can do both Ni-CD and Ni-MH. I was looking around online last night and came across this:

Integy INDI 16X3 Prov2.5 4-8Cell AC/DC VESC Charger


Is this good? Is there something better out there? HELP!

That charger is very good, and will handle NiCd and NiMh well. However, if you have a bit more cash, look into an LRP Pulsar, Reedy Quasar Pro, or Novak Millennium.

Thumbs up

A CE GFX would be a Great 1st Charger

but if you don't have that much Cash on had a LRP Pulsar or a Novak Millennium.. would do the trick rather well

Check out the CE Pitbull. I had the the quasar pro and millenium pro and like this charger way better. Fully adjustable for everything on both NiCD and NiMH. Many of the same charging features at the Turbo 35. The only downside I have found is that it is charge only (no discharge, cycle etc).

The Pulsar is looking nice, but the Integy charger is closer to the amount I have to spend. I think I am gonna go with the Integy.

i have the sam problem here, i must buy new batteries (i kept my old 1700-sp's....stopped r/c for 3 years)but i can t afford in the same time a $100 charger.i have at this moment a peak charger i bought for my micro which can just charge at 2 amps, it has no dicharging device, will it damage gp3300's if i charge them with it (perhaps for 2 months until iget more money).
i was thinking too buying the integy 16x3digital.
what about duratrax charger, their more expensive charger seems to look like another brand charger i was also thinking about the ionic ac/dc or the reedy quasar (standart) .
