If you take everything into consideration, the Orion Advantage is the best of the lot. The Lipo world is approaching fast and the Orion does that work in spades. I have two Orions, they have never missed a beat. Orion Advantage - My Vote

I have to put a nod to the APS... motor run to 20A with motor stand, step charging, temp probe all included, it's a great charger.. now only if it discharged.. but even then, I have my auto-cutoff bulb discharger, and all those extra functions can take away from charging duties anyway..

I have two, but won one at a TCS Final prize draw, so I can't complain at all

I'd be interested in the ICE if they came out with a Pro version with backlight, 20A discharge and 20A motor run.. how hard can that be?

If I ever dispose my ice then I would get a team orion advantage or yokomo charger. No way I'm getting a lesser charger that can't do everything especially charging lipo.

Default My Favorite

I love the HiIQ. Always made great chargers with other functionality. Other chargers are nice and compact and function just fine, but this one is my favorite. The worst charger, mabye we got a bad one, the BCS.

the only thing i'd wish for is at least 20amp discharge and maybe an RPM sensor for the motor run feature

I went with the Orion Advantage, it had more to offer than the CTX, and its rated with a 4mv sensitivy vs 3mv for the CTX, but most others are only 25mv.

I have a quite a few chargers - Tekin 112c, Ice, Pro-Trak, Victor IQ3000, just to name a few. My favorite of them all is the Victor, its just super easy to use.
