Default What is the best (most popular) Charger for indoor racing

With the exception of the competition electronics Turbo 35, what are most people using indoors on the carpet for 10th and 12th scale?

Thanks
Chris

Duratrax Ice. Probably the best charger for the money and very popular.

Same here! the ICE is a great charger, soon I possibly may get the Orion avionics. Sounds like it would be as close to a full proof lipo charger as you can get. ( Right now).

Duratrax Ice! Where else can you get a 5 year warranty on a charger? No where! And if you have a problem it's serviced in U.S. No other charger can match the functions and support.

I have used an ICE charger for 2 years and had great success
but I have recently switched to the ORION ADVANTAGE chargers
and seem to get a slighly better charge out of them.

Ice for the money. CTX if you've got money.

There are many good chargers, but the Turbo35 and the ICE are the 2 most popular for the better racers.
