Default MuchMore CTX-D2 vs. Lightning V2 vs. Trinity DPD??

Ok lets hear it... i don't want a huge debate just a general consensus..

The problem is my local track is PRO MuchMore.. so I need to know form my fellow RCTECH members what is preferred overall..

I read on the Team lightning website and I know some of the Pro's and Con's of it compared to the CTX, like the 1V hold feature the V2 has, but the CTX has 30AMP Discharge and the V2 has 20AMP, both have pulse feature i believe... and honestly I have yet to read about the DPD..

Can't wait to see the responses LOL

Thanks in advance!!

I got a CTX-2 that was dead on arrival. Had to spend $22 to send it back the next day. Ive read of customer service problems with MM and so far I can see what they meant.

I had a DPD and it was great. Only reason I got rid of it was because it did not have voltage hold. I have seen the CTX-D version 2 in action and it is nice but I personally don't like screw posts. The best thing about the DPD was it did not require being connected to a Power Supply.

I say go with the lightning V2. It is the most cost effective unit. Really all you need is a something to dump your packs fast. Then equalize before charging. I am really looking into getting a lightning and unloading my CTX-D.

I was going to try the Team Wave Lightning, but I've seen and heard of several instances where the voltage is not correctly read and it discharges improperly. If I'm paying good money for my batteries, I'm sure as hell going to pay to keep them as perfect as possible.

Default V2

I think the most impressive is the price.. of the Lightning V2 very cost effective for what it does, almost 100 less than competitors!!
