and oh yeah, before I forget, how much does these charger cost? Please specify their prices.. thanks..

is the Swallow charger a good charger too?

thanks again and thanks in advance..
Yokomo Ice Charger is available at our LHS (Pitshop) you can check price with them. The only difference I see from the two (Duratrax & Yokomo) is backlight other than that they are all the same.

Hope this helps.

another plus for the yoke is it includes the temp probe (for the ice, you have to buy this separately)

I read through a lot of threads before choosing the advantage, it seems to be one of the only other chargers that offers a 3mv peak sensitivity other than the Much More, and it does everything. So far I am happy with it, but I am a just getting starting so maybe I haven't found it's shortcoming yet.

also the Pro-Trak as this charger can be updated for any type of cell and further software upgrades, so therefore no need to keep buying new chargers as they go out of fashion. Ive had 2, now for 6, years and only once has one of them given me a little trouble, but great customr service here in the UK .

I also want to buy new ones (hope to buy 2).

I've been thinking of New Record Breaker "Competition" from Straight Ltd, Japan.

Anyone have it ?

The Ice charger has my vote, I have never used the much more or the ce chargers but I am completely satisfied with my Ice chargers so I see no need to try them. However beware, people see you using the Ice and you have people flocking over you to break in thier motors.

The swallow charger will only charge at a maximum of 5 amps. For Lipo's that is fine, but for the ib4200's you need at least 6 amps.

Orion advantage, looks like a good charger, has motor break in charges up to 10 amps, and will charge lipo's higher than 1c. And it looks like ebay has a couple pretty cheap. But you can only charge up to a 2 cell lipo (7.4v), and it doesn't look like it has any profile memories.

thanks bro for the input.. but do you really need to charge ib4200's at least 6amps? Right, they say, charge at a high amp for more punch but not necessarily required if you don't want to?

how many cell's does a lipo batt has?
